Electronic Arts Coming to Yaletown

Big news out of Techvibes’ Yaletown neighborhood – Electronic Arts (EA) is coming to the ‘hood. Apparently EA’s lack of a Yaletown address has been hurting their recruiting efforts in the gaming space. They couldn’t find any suitable location close to the Yaletown epicenter (read Blenz), so they’re building on it. Two floors are being surgically attached to the roof of 1110 Hamilton Street – the heritage building that houses Yaletown Brewing Company (map) and Blenz. Great location choice with the new Yaletown Skytrain station one block away and a flagship Earls going in the old Mavi Jeans location across the street. Yaletown will now have the highest density of cookie-cutter restaurants in Vancouver – Earls, Cactus Club, Milestone’s and Browns all within a one-block radius.
