lululemon athletica has come full circle: it is now officially back home in its birthplace of Kitsilano.
Previously located on Clark Drive, the Vancouver yoga apparel company’s corporate headquarters now resides at the base of the Burrard Street Bridge, overlooking Kits Beach and the beautiful North Shore mountains. Its head office has been occupied by more than 300 lulu employees since late Fall 2010. lululemon announced that they expect to complete the purchase of the building, located at 1818 Cornwall Avenue, on or around March 1, 2011.
Founded in 1998, by Chip Wilson (who also started Westbeach Sports in 1979), lululemon’s first real store opened in the heart of Kitsilano, on West 4th Ave, in November of 2000.
Welcome home lululemon!
