As many as 14 new businesses are opening up this summer in Lower Lonsdale area of the City of North Vancouver, the latest announcement in an ongoing development in The Shipyards.
In 2016, CNV chose Quay Property Management Corp. develop The Shipyards – Lot 5, with a focus on creating interactive year-round, activity driven people place that will include an outdoor public skating rink and a water play area. The outdoor public skating rink will be the largest in the Lower Mainland.
In the last two years, Quay has been gradually lifting the curtain on retail businesses, a hotel, and the restaurants that will complete the project. Two years ago, the company announced the name of the hotel, two restaurants and fitness facility.
Last week, it added a Capilano University satellite campus and announced seven other businesses that would open this summer.
Larry’s Market: This vegetarian grocer and deli will feature a smoothie bar, grab‐and‐go snacks, and all of your vegan or vegetarian grocery needs. With the opening of this new business, owner Ryan Dennis becomes a third generation Shipyards worker, at this historic site.
Welcome Ice Cream Parlour: A North Shore favourite, Welcome Parlour will be opening its second location to scoop their local, organic, artisanal ice cream.
Jamjar Canteen: Delicious Lebanese creations, in a beautifully designed room. This will be Jamjar’s fourth location.
Caffe Artigiano: Adding to the evolving coffee culture in Lower Lonsdale, Caffe Artigiano’s waterfront location will have unobstructed views, and an outdoor fireplace on the public patio!
Main Street Honey Shoppe: Featuring all things honey and honeybee, the Honey Shoppe’s second location will provide the North Shore with all the health benefits that honeybee products afford.
The Wallace Venue: The newest event venue in the city will accommodate up to 200 people, and features a 2,400 square foot terrace overlooking the Vancouver harbour, on the third level of The Shipyards. The Wallace will be run by the team behind neighbouring Pipe Shop Venue.
Heatseeker Sales: Sales and service office for Volcom will be relocating their Canadian showroom to The Shipyards, a North Shore location that they feel aligns well with the streetwear brand.
The other four businesses announced include Nook, a rustic Italian restaurant, Joey Shipyard, a 9,500 square foot flagship restaurant over two-storeys with spacious waterfront patios, Method Indoor Cycling, a 2500 square foot indoor cycling studio, as well as Seaside Hotel by Executive Group.
