Discover. Design. Disrupt.

Hynes Group

It’s unlikely that you’ve ever worked with a company like ours.
We see things differently. We think differently. We bring uncommon sensibilities to the worlds of design, development and data management.
We see opportunities where others don’t.

Innovation through collaboration.

We approach the work in ways that are unconventional and sometimes unexpected.
We seek out other disruptors who share our passion for humanistic design, a commitment to social and environmental causes, and a determination to challenge the status quo.
We partner with like-minded leaders who are driven to make a difference on a human scale. Together, we create ground-breaking designs that are authentic, integrated, and inherently livable.

Places for people.

At the Hynes Group, you won’t find handbooks or templates. We don’t do “off the shelf.”
What you will find is a team of dedicated specialists who bring a fresh perspective to every project and who are comfortable in the complexity that comes with multi-purpose, multi-partner projects.
Agile and adaptable, we take pride in anticipating your needs and exceeding your expectations.

Work in progress.

Our story is a work in progress, unfolding in sync with our partners. We embrace both the stumbles and the successes with every new chapter. Those learnings deepen our knowledge, introduce new perspectives, and sharpen our edge.
It’s a journey of discovery, design and disruption.


Waterfall Building

One the first Hynes creations, the Waterfall building was completed in 2001 and is a Vancouver landmark for residential mixed use property. It is located near the entrance to Granville Island and was designed by legendary architect Arthur Erikson. The concrete and glass building features 45 live/work units, an inviting courtyard with waterfall, commercial spaces including a cafe/teahouse, and a boutique data center owned and run by a Hynes group company.

Bridgegate Building

Directly adjacent to the Waterfall Building is the Bridgegate Building, which was purchased by the Hynes group in 2018. This commercial building currently houses offices and retail space, and has plans for a major retro fit that will integrate Hynes next generation data center into the building.

Coming Soon

The Hynes group has been been spending a significant amount of time and resources into our next project. This will be a multi partner, mixed use space bringing together state of the art technology and private/public partners in an exciting new development. More details to be announced soon.
