Project Description

Gastown Gamble

GASTOWN GAMBLE is an original docu-series following Vancouver entrepreneurs Mark & Nicole Brand as they take on their riskiest challenge yet: resurrecting the historic Save-On-Meats building in Vancouver’s notorious Downtown Eastside. In bringing the 54-year-old diner and butcher shop back to life, they hope to also achieve the ultimate goal of revitalizing the Downtown Eastside, Canada’s most challenged neighbourhood.

It’s all on the Line.
