The Hamilton Bank Building is comprised of Hamilton Studios, 42 residential studio units, and Hamilton Shops, approximately 4,314 sq.ft. across 5 commercial space on the ground level.
Situated in the eclectic Port Town neighborhood of East Vancouver, famous for its concentration of craft breweries and coffee roasters, The Hamilton Bank Building is a 110 year old mixed-use character building that still maintains its authentic charm. It was designed by turn of the century "starchitect," William Whiteway, who was responsible for designing many of Vancouver's most iconic buildings, including the Sun Tower. The building was originally occupied by the Hamilton Bank - a bank which merged with CIBC in the 1920's - of which the original two-story solid brick bank safe still exists within the building today.
The small studio units are perfect for creative/craft makers that prefer to reside small and live large. The shops below house tenants that have grassroots businesses, contributing to the artisanal nature of the local community.
