MEC to Open New Flagship Store in Olympic Village
January 06, 2016
Olympic Village, recognized as one of the most sustainable neighbourhoods in the world, seems a perfect fit for Mountain Equipment Co-op, the outdoor retailer that embodies many Vancouverites’ passion for active lifestyles. A new 45,000-square-foot flagship store, plus office space above is planned for 2nd Ave and Quebec St. (check out the article on VancouverOlympicVillageCondos.com for more!).
The design will embody MEC's signature green building form and hopes to contribute to sustainable urban development in the Olympic Village neighbourhood. It will achieve a minimum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification and is set to open by early 2018. We can't wait!
