Open for business! Launch your 2021 business plan in East Courtenay

Set yourself up to thrive with a fantastic location, great amenities and immediate occupancy

It’s time to leave 2020 in the dust, and start making resolutions for 2021.

If you’ve got big business goals for the new year, the growing commercial and residential hub in East Courtenay is the perfect place to set up shop.

“With the new Comox Valley Hospital right next door, it’s a fantastic location for medical services like physiotherapy, optometry, and offices for specialists like surgeons and audiologists,” says Tom Moore, the President of Dark Horse Holdings, which brought the mixed-use building CUBES to the neighbourhood.

If you’re ready to set up a brick-and-mortar shop for your passion project, want to make 2021 the year you expand your retail or office space, or have plans to take your Zoom-based fitness classes into a spacious studio, CUBES is the perfect home base.

  • Captive audience: CUBES is a multi-use building, which means there are over 100 people living right upstairs. The high-end residential units in Phase One are completely sold out, and Phase Two is over 50 per cent sold. Residents love that Milano Coffee is opening downstairs, and your business can add to the busy atmosphere. Plus, on-site residents aren’t your only customer base in the neighbourhood. CUBES is right on the campus of the Comox Valley Hospital and a short walk from North Island College, so a steady stream of employees, patients and students will always be passing by.
  • Ecological leadership: Tom Moore has made CUBES a leader when it comes to sustainable design in the Comox Valley, with features including electric vehicle charging stations and a heat recovery ventilation system that improves energy efficiency. “We’re building our dental practice using state-of-the art technology, and love that we’ve found a landlord that matches our goal of being a hub of innovation,” says Dr. Cyrus Bachus, who is opening North Island Dental at CUBES in Spring 2021. In addition to general dentistry, the clinic will lead the way in offering sleep apnea treatment, botox, IV sedation and more — innovation that pairs well with the excellent air quality, natural light, and local, sustainable building materials at CUBES.
  • Excellent amenities: Each business has its own storefront parking, and there are great signage opportunities for all commercial units. There are still a range of units available from 1000 to 6400 square feet, so you’re bound to find a space that matches your ambition.
