Kevington Buidling supports carsharing in the community!
Modo and Kevington Building
Like Modo, Kevington Building is passionate about the pursuit of innovative sustainable practices.
That is why we are proud to be a partner of Modo.
A large portion of our sustainable planning is how we nurture community both inside our properties, and in the surrounding area. In the commuter, friendly neighborhood of Mount Pleasant, we wanted to bring car sharing to our District Main property. It was this initiative that began our Modo story.
The 300th car at District Main
After researching and meeting with Modo’s exciting, passionate and professional team, we were overjoyed to form a partnership. One of the outcomes of this partnership was when our District Main property became home to the Modo’s 300th car. It is fitting that this milestone was achieved at one of Vancouver’s most exciting, progressive, community oriented rental buildings where social and environmental sustainability are part of the community culture.
As Modo continues to grow, now with 500 vehicles, so too has our partnership. From AGM meetings, to participating annually in the Modo 8k race, Modo has become an integral part of our sustainable practices. You can even catch our team members looking fly as they cruise around town in very same 300th vehicle.
Congratulations to the staff at Modo. We love what you do and look forward your next milestone!
