Mayor Gregor Robertson seems to think so. Which is why he was on site of the Marine Gateway project yesterday with PCI Developments Corp. to announce super green engineering company Westport Innovations as the commercial anchor tenant to the project. Westport has leased up more than 50% of the office tower and plans to relocate over 500 employees upon completion of the development in 2015. Since construction of the Canada Line in 2009, the City has had major plans to redevelop the Cambie Corridor and the Marine Gateway project was the first to break ground. It also strategically located steps from the Marine Drive station. This $370 million project will include two residential towers (which sold out in one day) and one office tower with retail at grade.
