Iconic American jeweller Tiffany & Co. will expand its freestanding Vancouver location by adding a second level. When the expansion opens later this year, the store will be almost as large as Tiffany's Toronto Bloor Street flagship.
Located at the northwest corner of Burrard Street and Alberni Street with a 723 Burrard Street municipal address, the 4,700 square foot Tiffany & Co. opened in the fall of 2006. Tiffany will expand into space occupied by Japanese restaurant Kamei Royale, with the restaurant set to open a new location in the Coal Harbour area in the spring of 2016.
'Van23H' on Vancouver Skyscraper Page Forum claims to have seen renderings, and says that the expanded Vancouver store "will be even nicer than the Bloor Street flagship."
Tiffany & Co. entered the Vancouver market as a licensed shop-in-store within Holt Renfrew in 1994. Tiffany continues to operate a shop at Vancouver's Holt's as a concession. Tiffany has three free-standing stores in Toronto, two in Vancouver, and one each in Edmonton, Calgary and Montreal. Three smaller Tiffany & Co. concessions also operate within Holt Renfrew locations in Calgary, Montreal (at Ogilvy) and as mentioned, in Vancouver.
