The Gastown Child Care Centre is comprised of two prefabricated child care facilities that will be placed atop the existing Gastown Parkades located in Vancouver’s historic Gastown neighbourhood. Each of the facilities will provide 37 child care spaces for a total of 74 child care spaces.

The buildings are designed to achieve Passive House certification and LEED v4 Gold certification, with a focus on net zero energy and low carbon fuel sources. The architectural expression is playful, contemporary, and complementary to the existing parkades and the surrounding Gastown context.
