Mount Pleasant Community Centre, Vancouver

June 7, 2014

Opened in 2010, this centre combines a variety of services — housing, childcare, library and recreational facilities. Although relatively new, the centre is already used at peak capacity due to the rapid growth of the surrounding areas. Thoughtful planning has resulted in a number of multi-functional spaces with good storage and expandability, two large kitchens, and a rooftop child-care centre for three age groups. There is a small on-site café, an outdoor plaza area, and secure open areas on the second floor.


  • Storage is key.
  • We need to plan for popularity — Grandview is growing as rapidly as Main Street.
  • A fireplace translates as “cosy and inviting.”
  • There is good visibility from the main arterials (Kingsway, Broadway, and Main).
  • They have a climbing wall in the dividable gym.
