Hynes is a nimble, innovative, research-oriented development company focused on creating environments that are responsive to the needs of people and communities. We bring together the finest minds from a wide range of disciplines to collaborate both on project design and fundamental research. Hynes understands how architecture, technology and urban form influence the lives and well being of the people they serve, with a focus on creating developments that are socially, environmentally and economically sensitive within local and global contexts.
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.
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.
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.
