Maker Exchange is the Strathcona neighbourhood. Strathcona is the 3rd most walkable neighbourhood in Vancouver with a overall Walk Score of 93.
Enhanced by easy accessibility to nearby amenities including Crab Park at Portside, the Maker Exchange is the place to connect, collaborate and create, whether by auto, public transit or bicycle. And, with exclusive use of the Maker Exchange private shuttle bus service, it’s close to Downtown transit and SkyTrain locations.
A busting rail and industrial hub in the 1880s, Railtown was historically one to a railcard, factories, canneries, shipyards and warehouses. The Maker Exchange sits on the former Blaine Boiler Works factory property. Now, instead of forging iron, the Maker Exchange is a factory for ideas and innovation, paving the way for a brilliant future.
Here the old and new converge in a neighbourhood known for its raw character and creative spirit. We respect and celebrate the history in order to create community and legacy.
