TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 25, 2014) - Cushman & Wakefield announced today the exclusive appointment as advisors for Pearson Dogwood Lands, located in the heart of Vancouver. C&W is representing the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority in the sale of the property.

Cushman & Wakefield's Capital Markets team is comprised of Kevin Meikle, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Lee Blanchard, Senior Vice President, Scott MacPherson, Associate Vice President, and Edgar Buksevics, Sales Representative.

The 25.39 acre Pearson Dogwood Lands compromises an entire city block bound by Cambie and Heather Streets and 57th and 59th Avenues in Vancouver. Guided by the "Complete Community" principles of its recently approved Land Use Policy, the Pearson Dogwood Lands are expected to transform into one of the most exciting and diverse mixed-use communities in North America with over 3 million square feet of housing, health care, retail and commercial, community, rapid transit, and green space uses.

"Pearson Dogwood Lands provide a rare opportunity for a developer to acquire one of the largest land parcels to ever become available in Vancouver and transform the property into a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood," said Meikle. "Given the scarcity of developable land in Vancouver, especially of such scale and profile, we expect the property to generate a great deal of interest from the Canadian development community."

All proposals to acquire and develop Pearson Dogwood Lands must follow the content and submission guidelines outlined in the Request for Proposals, Pearson Dogwood Lands Redevelopment Project available on BC Bid website. The deadline for submissions of proposals to acquire and develop Pearson Dogwood Lands is 2:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time on October 28, 2014.
