The Terminus Hotel was built in 1901 as an early mixed-use building in Vancouver’s historic Gastown. Constructed in 1889, the adjacent Grand Hotel was built three years after the Great Fire had devastated Gastown in 1886.

Completed in 2008, Terminus + Grand project combines the two heritage buildings into a single 5,250 square metre rehabilitation and expansion development that accommodates retail spaces at ground level with residential uses above, with additions set back from the street edge.

The project was part of a complex, three phase process by which five adjacent heritage buildings were rehabilitated and added onto to achieve a 100% increase in density. The revitalization successfully transformed a piece of Gastown historic fabric into a vibrant quarter for living, working, socializing and commerce.
