COLLECTION 45 – 125 E 8TH AVENUE – VANCOUVER EAST  V5T 1R8


Innovative, thoughtful and unique …. two-Level residential scissor suites span the east side of the building, bathing spaces in fresh air and daylight from the north and south. Second-floor suites are grouped together by a horizontal brick frame that aligns with the commercial space below. To the west, spacious one and two-bedroom suites extend out over the pedestrian breezeway below, providing natural light and postcard views of the setting sun.

Two banks of residential suites float over a commercial space, which will house offices, retail services such as a coffee shop, full service spa and local arts and culture. COLLECTION45 joins a healthy and growing community of creative professionals that live and work in the area. From architecture and interior design firms to film production studios and web agencies, artists of all stripes call Mount Pleasant home.

The building facade is a nod to mount pleasant’s evolving architecture. Glass and steel are woven alongside brick and metal paneling to create an exterior composition that reflects the district’s industrial origins and vibrant contemporary character. The folding nature of the frame softens the structure’s height, bridging the scale of existing developments and those planned for the future.

Collection 45 sets a new precedent for residential architecture in Vancouver. The six-storey structure projects a strong visual identity, incorporating elements from the district’s light industrial heritage while reflecting the neighbourhood’s contemporary character as an eclectic cultural hub. A dedicated arts and culture space will foster creativity and community by providing an affordable venue for local artists to show their work.

INTERIORS
The thoughtful design and intelligent details that define Collection 45’s exterior extend inside. Inspired by European modernism and restraint, each of the building’s 45 residential suites is cleverly configured to embrace natural light, maximize open space and encourage free movement.

Classic touches and neutral tones provide a clean canvas for individual expression and evolving tastes. The materials you see and touch every day in your home define your living experience and help determine your quality of life. Begin personalizing your space immediately, choosing from one of two carefully curated palettes—light or dark—designed to complement the contemporary interior design.

THE FINE DETAILS
In the bathroom, modern fixtures and marble finishes offer a fresh feel. The glossy cabinetry shines against the room’s matte marble elements in classic Italian carrara gioia. In the ensuite variation, marble extends from the floor to the walls and plays off the glass shower door to open up the space.

In the kitchen, modern appliances and cabinetry blend seamlessly with the room’s contours and contemporary decor. Wall-mounted lacquer cabinetry cuts a sleek silhouette, eschewing hardware in favour of clean lines. Certain elements, including the refrigerator, are hidden from view behind cabinet façades. Other functional items—the cylindrical range hood in particular—are featured as sculptural centrepieces.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
MORE THAN ANY OTHER NEIGHBOURHOOD, Mount Pleasant is the ideal blend of historic and contemporary. Since its origins as an industrial and commercial centre in the late 19th century, the district has illuminated its heritage with a distinctly modern glow. Today, the community is a creative catalyst, a mosaic of personalities and perspectives with a colourful character that offers unlimited access to art, music, fashion and recreation – all the essentials of modern living.

From home grown to high fashion, the retail scene is vast and varied. Whether you are on the hunt for locally designed clothing or international brands, new music or vintage LPs, the neighbourhood’s eclectic mix of boutiques, studios and galleries satisfies every taste.

When it comes to eats, few areas of the city can compete with the neighbourhood’s culturally diverse cuisine and impressive array of restaurants, gastropubs, bars and lounges. From take-out sushi to French bistro, cocktail lounges to wine bars, there is a menu to suit every occasion and palate—and more popping up every day.

CAFE CULTURE IS THRIVING ON MAIN STREET.
Head downstairs to COLLECTION45′s very own java joint or choose from several local favourites in the surrounding blocks. Grab a cup to go, or pause to sip slowly and soak up the atmosphere.

GET OUTSIDE AND ENJOY THE GREEN SPACE. Test your green thumb at a nearby community garden, then stretch your legs-and your puppy’s too-at one of several family-friendly parks in the area. Venture a bit further south and the False Creek seawall awaits. The accessible waterfront pathway and lush Habitat Island offer a tranquil setting for a morning jog, sunset stroll or weekend bike ride. Prefer to stay close to home? Reinvigorate with a yoga class or relax at the spa on COLLECTION45′s ground floor.
