chevron station


Anthem Properties has bought the second-last gas station in Vancouver’s downtown peninsula, paying a reported – and stunning – $72 million for the 16,369-square-foot site on West Georgia Street.

The Anthem team is “enthusiastically looking forward to creating a stunning residential project on this high profile site,” said Anthem CEO Eric Carlson in a news release. The site still requires rezoning.

“It’s was a real estate decision,” said Chevron spokesman Adrien Byrne. “It was one of the highest performing sites in our network in B.C. but, given the vibrant real estate market in Vancouver, we made the decision last year to put the site on the market and now it is sold.”

Wesgroup recently bought the 18,009-square-foot Chevron station site at 5505 Dunbar Street for $19.4 million.

The last gas station in downtown Vancouver, an Esso outlet on Burrard Street, is listed for sale by Colliers International.
