The tour celebrated the completion of Amazon’s South Tower move-in, with teams now occupying all 21 floors in the building. During the visit, the mayor and council members visited The Post’s heritage floors and also its newest features, including a rooftop deck; outdoor dog parks that are part of Amazon’s Dogs at Work program; a solarium; and more.

The Post was once the main regional processing facility for Canada Post—a historical landmark and an important example of Vancouver’s mid-century architecture. Today, the building is home to thousands of software development engineers, user experience designers, speech scientists working to make Alexa smarter, cloud computing solutions architects, and more.


“Amazon is proud to be part of the local community, and The Post has created a centre of energy in the heart of downtown where our teams can invent and collaborate on behalf of customers. We were thrilled to show Mayor Sim how Amazon is continuing to grow and invest in Vancouver,” said Jesse Dougherty, Amazon VP.

With 1.1 million square feet of office space and 185,000 square feet for food and retail tenants, The Post is helping reinvigorate the Crosstown neighbourhood in downtown Vancouver.

After the visit, Mayor Sim and council members enjoyed a reception with local Vancouver industry associations, including the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, BC Tech, Invest Vancouver, and the Gastown Business Improvement Association.
