June 23, 2022

Evolve Strength Added To Tenant Roster

The Post, QuadReal Property Group’s revitalization of the historic Canada Post building in downtown Vancouver, continues to get stronger with the addition of best-in-class tenants – this time, through the incorporation of Evolve Strength to the retail mix.

Regarded as the “evolution of health & wellness”, Evolve Strength is a one-stop shop for personalized health and fitness combining a robust physical training offering with the most diverse team of health, fitness and wellness professionals. Representing 35,000 sq.ft. of the 185,000 sq.ft. retail footprint at The Post, Evolve Strength is slated to open in Fall 2023 with what will be the brand’s very first location in the Vancouver marketplace and the fifth location for the fitness leader. “Evolve Strength is excited to work with QuadReal on this high-profile central Vancouver heritage redevelopment as we continue our strategic portfolio growth into the BC market. This represents a key next step for our brand as we execute on our vision of becoming Canada’s premier club facility in the professional health & wellness category,” says Ray Yue, Co-Founder/Director of Real Estate of Evolve Strength.

“We are really trying to curate something that will be especially compelling to the office worker contingent here, which is why we are thrilled to welcome Evolve Strength to this very special project,” says Larissa Jacobson, Vice President, Retail Leasing, QuadReal Property Group. “Evolve Strength’s high-end amenities coupled with its unrivalled atmosphere will together provide members with an unforgettable health and fitness experience. This is a natural next step for us since the Vancouver market has long expressed interest for the Evolve Strength experience on the west coast. We anticipate reaching capacity before grand opening; our team looks forward to introducing our unique model to Vancouver’s downtown community and also serving the Amazon team onsite,” says Jon Cheung, Co-Founder and President of Evolve Strength.

Evolve Strength will join previously announced tenants: Amazon, Loblaw CityMarket, Buro The Espresso Bar, Deville Coffee and The Joseph Richard Group, the latter which will create and operate a culinary and retail food hall market experience.
