Commercial real estate filling up in New WestminsterSeptember 20, 2017 12:01 pm
Three years after it was sold by the city to a group of investors led by Vancouver’s Joe Segal and Suki Sekhorn, the eight-storey Anvil Centre office tower in downtown New Westminster has its first tenant, an indication of the growing – and quirky – commercial real estate sector in Metro Vancouver’s nexus city.
The Anvil will become a gambling destination, the old Keg restaurant on Columbia Street is being retrofitted into a Tex-Mex style eatery and “Canada’s largest indoor trampoline park” has opened in an industrial site near the SkyTrain Baird Station.
Evolution Gaming is taking one floor of the tower to house a 16,000-square-foot studio that will eventually create 170 jobs, confirmed Roger Leggett, vice-president at Cushman & Wakefield, the leasing agency.
