The old Hamilton Gear and Machinery Co. factory at 950 Dupont St. has been temporarily taken over by Vans and transformed into music venue, art gallery and skate park. House of Vans set up shop from March 16 to April 2 and opening night performances from Vancouver trap artist Tommy Genesis, hometown hero Jazz Cartier and Massachusetts indie rock originators Dinosaur Jr. were a smash hit.
The old factory will eventually become the home of Bellwoods Brewery, but due to landlord delays, construction is behind schedule by over a year.
