Our Story

Shape Properties is a visionary real estate investment and development company based in Vancouver, BC. Since 2005, we have become one of the most active fully integrated developers in Western Canada, leading the development of some of the largest and most exciting projects currently underway in North America. With a vision of creating vibrant urban lifestyle destinations, Shape Living was established to dramatically transform the interaction between living, shopping, dining and entertainment. Currently, we are creating extraordinary places by developing Brentwood and Lougheed Town Centres into urban City Centres. As one developer leading all components of our projects, from residential through to retail and office, we comprehensively create master-planned communities under one cohesive vision. Most importantly, we have a long-term commitment to owning, operating and managing all the properties in our portfolio.

Our dedication to creating places that matter is visible in all that we do. From the striking architecture of our projects through to the quality of their construction, we are passionate about the art behind place making. You will find distinction in the excellence of our partners and the calibre of our teams.

Mixed-Use the Future of Living

Shape Living creates mixed-use destinations with high-rise residences atop cutting-edge shopping, dining and entertainment experiences. Positioned for direct access to SkyTrain’s rapid transit lines and surrounded by world-class amenities and walkable streets, our properties will be enticing destinations from morning to night. We take all of this and wrap it in an abundance of lush landscaping, maintained and manicured for your enjoyment. This is the promise and future of living in a carefully curated mixed-use community.

SkyTrain, the Transportation Advantage

Fueled by infrastructure investments and improved transportation access, Shape Living’s master-planned City Centres are strategically located on SkyTrain’s rapid transit lines, providing residents with unsurpassed connections to Vancouver’s downtown core, YVR and beyond. Our bold developments will thrive from the success of SkyTrain’s $1.6 billion Millennium Line as well as the construction of the $1.4 billion Evergreen Line. By positioning homes directly on transit, we offer a sustainable way to live and freedom from car ownership.

Master-Planned Communities

Shape Living works closely with the city and public to design world-class urban lifestyle destinations through the master-plan rezoning process. This involves comprehensive public consultation and lengthy exploration of residents’ needs. Our team is passionate about harnessing the energy of established neighbourhoods and building on this authenticity to develop master-plans reflective of current needs and future demands.

Home Ownership

Shape Living is proud to collaborate with some of the world’s most celebrated architects to create high-rise residences that seamlessly integrate into our master-planned communities. Soaring atop city centres and situated directly on SkyTrain, our homes offer a vibrant lifestyle with unrivalled convenience and boundless perks. To live in our homes is to experience the best of urban living.
