We have located lease plans through Robson Central's landlord, Morguard Investments. The basement level of the store will be 20,815 square feet, while the ground floor will be 13,999 square feet. The space was previously home to an HMV store and its second-level mezzanine has been removed to accommodate higher ceilings for Victoria's Secret.

Robson Central was built in 1957 as the main branch of the Vancouver Public Library. It served this purpose until 1995 when it was converted to retail and other commercial uses. The first retail tenant for the Victoria's Secret space was a Virgin Megastore.
The largest Victoria's Secret store in North America (as well as in the world) is its Herald Square store in New York City. It is about 60,000 square feet.
