Salient’s work with the Garage and Cordage buildings include a rehabilitation of retail and office spaces, and addition of new residential storeys, configured around the Gaoler’s Mews courtyard.

The completion of Garage created new, modern live-work space in Gastown, and was the third phase of Salient’s mixed-use redevelopment in this historic neighbourhood. It melds together the modern addition spread across the former 1930 Nagle Brothers garage and the 1890 Cordage Building – a former home of rope manufacturer Canada Cordage Co.

The retail and office space in the Nagle Brother’s Garage building is defined by a 1930 historic board-formed concrete structure, storefront glass, and 13-foot ceilings. Office space in the Garage totals approximately 10,000 square feet of brick, timber, or concrete space. The four-storey, 1889 Cordage Building has high-ceiling brick and timber retail and office space.

It connects with the ca.1886 "Alhambra" Building through the Gaoler's Mews Courtyard and leas to the Carrall Street greenway. The courtyard today is a vibrant, charming space with restaurant, patio and café seating, retail, and elevator access to the office and live-work spaces above.

The project was completed in the fall of 2009.  This project received the 2010 UDI Award of Excellence in Urban Development for “Best Heritage”.

The Garage is fully leased. For future opportunities to lease retail or office space, please contact Servissio Property Services.
