This is what Lululemon's new global headquarters in Canada will look like
More than 20 years after it was originally founded in Vancouver, Yoga outfitter Lululemon Athletica is set to open a striking new headquarters in the False Creek Flats business area of the B.C. city's downtown.
Based on new renderings that have just been released, the complex will more closely resemble a fancy new mall than an office building.
The ultramodern Store Support Centre will be able to hold a whopping 4,000 employees — 2,000 of which are currently spread between four different Vancouver offices — and will boast a sleek, unique glass design complete with ample greenery and a beautiful open air central atrium.
Located on Foley Street, the nearly 50,000 square metre, 13-floor space will have a whimsical feel with a mix of curved edges, disjointed lines and sharp corners designed by Morphosis Architects and Francl Architecture.
The ground floor will be reserved for retail and a cafe/restaurant, and plans include five levels of parking, as well as landscaped terraces and interior green spaces. The building will also be sustainable, with only the best in eco-friendly certification in line with Lululemon's ethos.
Though the building is certainly impressive and apparently warranted for the growth in staff that the apparel company anticipates in the near future, rezoning for the structure's height, retail plans and more have yet to be formally approved.
