A Balance of Practicality & Expression

Hornby & Drake is a 35-storey, mixed-use tower from Wall Financial that will replace the Seymour Health Centre at 1290 Hornby Street in Downtown Vancouver. It will offer 211 condominiums with a mix of 1- to 3-bedroom layouts. Resident amenities will feature 1,040 sq ft of indoor spaces, and a landscaped terrace on the podium roof that includes a children’s play space, lounge, an al fresco dining area, and gardening plots. Six levels of underground parking will accommodate 150 vehicles and 450 bicycles.

Situated near the gateway to Downtown Vancouver, Hornby & Drake is nestled between the leisure venues of Yaletown and the seaside amenities of the Beach neighbourhood. At the foot of Hornby Street, you’ll find access to the seawall which offers the opportunity to stroll, jog, or bike between Kits Beach and Stanley Park. Alternatively, first hop on the Aquabus for a short cruise to Granville Island where you can stock your picnic basket before basking in the sun at Sunset Beach or English Bay. When the sun goes down, you’ll be spoiled for choice with the multicultural eateries of Davie Village or fine dining in Yaletown. Art house movies at The Cinematheque, contemporary live music at the Commodore Ballroom, or the VSO at The Orpheum offer neighbourhood opportunities to feed your soul.
