Yaletown Meeting Room Facilities SmartPoint Research Focus Group Facilities
SmartPoint Research is located on the 3rd floor of a heritage building in the lively Yaletown area of Downtown Vancouver. Yaletown is rich with history and this building was built in 1913 for Front Darling & Company, Electrical Supplies and Machinery. Our beautiful exposed brick walls and wooden ceilings are all remnants of the original building.

Similar to many areas in Vancouver, Yaletown’s beginnings were shaped by the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1887. Yaletown received its name when the railway moved its equipment and repair shops from Yale in the Fraser Canyon to the railway’s western terminus of Vancouver.

Over the next 20 years many sawmills and shingle mills were erected on the north side of False Creek. By the 1900s, business was thriving throughout B.C. and Vancouver had become the wholesaling centre for western Canada.

Yaletown today is a restored part of the city and a stylish place to live, work, and do business. The area north of Pacific Boulevard, between Nelson and Drake Streets, is home to art galleries, retail stores, restaurants, cafés, office and residential developments.

Our clients love the atmosphere we’ve created by combining a modern décor within heritage brick walls. To experience our professionally designed meeting space, please phone our Facility Manager, Justine Lilgert at 604-484-4111 ext. 1500 or send us an email at info@smartpointresearch.com
