Best Buy Canada is moving their headquarters from Burnaby to Vancouver in early 2022.
Located on the westernmost edge of Mount Pleasant, Best Buy’s new HQ will be in a new 10-storey office building currently under construction at 425 West 6th Avenue.
The new corporate office is located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Yukon Street and East 6th Avenue, across the street from Best Buy’s flagship store at 2220 Cambie Street.
The new location is also within very close walking distance to both SkyTrain’s Olympic Village Station to the north and Broadway-City Hall Station to the south.
According to Daily Hive Urbanized, Best Buy will occupy the top five floors — about 77,500 sq ft of the 177,500 sq ft office space being built.
The new location completely replaces the retailer’s sprawling business park office campus at 8800 Glenlyon Parkway in South Burnaby, where the company has occupied about 140,000 sq ft of space for the past 25 years.
The future of the Best Buy headquarters will depend on the continuation of flexible, semi-remote work as a permanent change.
The current Burnaby office has a capacity to accommodate all 1,200 workers with the company, but the new Vancouver office, at only half the size, has the capacity for just half at 600.
