Ace Copper Specialists was called upon by Bastion Developments, to provide custom Anthra Zinc gutters and downpipes for the Opsal Heritage Barn preservation.
Many Vancouverites have noticed the immense, barn-like structure on East 2nd Avenue at Quebec, with its red paint peeling and its windows broken. The steel building is a fine reminder of False Creek South’s industrial heritage, and one of a very few surviving examples of Vancouver’s turn-of-the-century industrial architecture.
Today, the building will enter its next chapter. Its heavy timbers and industrial artifacts will be taken apart, piece by piece, with each component numbered, documented, and reassembled as a part of the new Opsal site, featuring a 24-storey tower with 165 Condo units plus commercial / retail space.
