The building

The Warehouse Studio is housed in the oldest brick building in Vancouver, which is located in present-day Gastown. Originally built by the Oppenheimer Brothers in either June 1886 or July 1887 as Vancouver's first wholesale grocery business, it also served as Vancouver's first City Hall. For most of its 115+ year history, the building held a glass factory and storage warehouse for Pilkington Glass Company. Map of Gastown Statue of Gassy Jack, Gastown. ...

The old Warehouse Studio was in the basement of Bryan Adams' former West Vancouver house, located on the 3330 block of Mathers Avenue, and held a SSL 4072 G+ (now in Studio 1). While he was on tour, Bryan would allow other bands to record there, but because of the intrusion on privacy and noise, he had plans to create a studio complex in the heart of Vancouver. In 1991, he bought the abandoned, burnt-out brick building. Despite heavy taxes by the City and the cost of making it earthquake safe, Bryan restored it. The building was sheared in two, and one-half of it was gutted into an open air courtyard with a parking lot and small putting green. The other half is the 3-storey studio, in which he made sure kept a lot of its old character and charm.

In 1998, Bryan received a City of Vancouver Heritage Award for his effort.
