Sinclair Centre Revitalization, Vancouver

The Sinclair Centre has housed upscale retail outlets, a food court, and various Federal services offices since 1986. No major renovations have been done since then.

This project is the first phase of the Federal Government’s plan to revive the civic identity of the Sinclair Centre while maintaining its main function as housing for the Federal Services Centre serving the people of Greater Vancouver.

The revitalization project relocates and consolidates the Passport office. It upgrades the overall signage in the public space, and provides seismic upgrades to all major public areas including the atrium and galleria. The interior and exterior lighting has been improved and the interior updated. The project aims to enliven the currently underused public space while increasing public awareness of its heritage and historical values.
