Animal Logic is recognized as one of the world’s leading independent creative digital studios, producing award winning design, visual effects and animation for over 30 years.
The Australian animation and visual effects studio announced today that it will double their workforce in Vancouver and expand its local presence with new space in the Mount Pleasant district.
Animal Logic will be the anchor tenant of the future M4 office building at Westbank’s Main Alley tech campus.
According to Floorspace’s Matt Carlson, the company will occupy 110,000 square feet across multiple floors in the building at 110 East 5th Avenue, about a five-minute walk from SkyTrain’s future Mount Pleasant Station.
Carlson told Techcouver, “having an international company like Animal Logic grow their footprint in Vancouver’s Mt. Pleasant tech hub is a strong indicator that other innovative companies will be growing in this area in the coming years.”
The new studio within M4 will be more than twice the size of Animal Logic’s original 45,000 sq ft space in Yaletown, where the company first established its presence upon initially opening in Vancouver in 2015.
“It’s exciting to be able to design a space for our hybrid workforce that fosters an interconnected, collaborative, and creative environment for our talented employees and their development, whilst also supporting our sustainability initiatives,” said Sharon Taylor, the chief operating officer of Animal Logic, in a statement shared by Daily Hive’s Kenneth Chan.
Animal Logic’s early years in Vancouver were busy working on the LEGO series of movies. It is anticipated that the new Vancouver studio at M4 will generate an additional 300 jobs.
