Location

  • Canada Line at Marine Drive Location located onsite
  • Lines 3, 10, 15, 17 & 100 onsite at Marine Drive Station Bay 1

Hello Marine Drive!

We’ve found the perfect location at 450 Southwest Marine Drive Vancouver BC V5X V42

It has direct access to the Marine Drive Canada Line Station, onsite parking, and buses within walking distance. We’ll be at a WeWork, which means startups, companies, and freelancers will likely be around us, and you will get a feel for what it’s like to work in a tech environment, really similar to where all of Polyglot’s founders have worked / working at!

You will have access to micro-kitchens, couches to work at, lectures will be held in conference rooms, and during off hours, you’ll be able to come in whenever an instructor is there as well! It’s a great environment to foster learning as much as possible, and we look forward to building and creating with you at our new place!
