MOSAIC is moving its headquarters from Commercial Drive neighbourhood to 5575 Boundary Rd in Vancouver. The 23,000 square foot facility is designated as community amenity space owned by the City of Vancouver in Tower 3 of the new Wall Centre Central Park. Our new home was built, fully finished and furnished by the developer of the complex, Wall Financial.
With 54 staff offices and work stations, a large community room, a welcome centre, eight meeting rooms, a computer lab and a child-friendly family counselling space, MOSAIC will provide better and more professional services to our clients.
The new facility is conveniently located near public transit and is 45% larger than the current headquarters. Three classrooms open up to a conference space that will accommodate up to 160 people and an expanded community meeting room will also host up to 90 people seated or standing.
The relocation will be seamless and there will not be disruption in services to clients and customers.
For 30 years, 1720 Grant Street served as MOSAIC’s primary site. Over three decades, the immigrant settlement organization expanded from this single location, to today’s 28 locations across Metro Vancouver where clients can access MOSAIC’s services and programs.
Discussions with the city regarding a future home for MOSAIC have been ongoing for a dozen years, with the Wall Centre Central Park site confirmed in 2013. MOSAIC’s new 23,000 square foot facility is owned by the City of Vancouver and designated as community amenity space.
MOSAIC wishes to acknowledge the efforts of its space committee in helping to secure the site, and in the subsequent planning of the work and meeting spaces. Space committee members include: board members Adam Policzer, Jeff Brook, Yijin Wen; architect Julio Gombero; MOSAIC Finance Director Sue Trevor, and Eyob Naizghi, Executive Director.
