320-640 West Broadway is the address for the offices of Vancouver independent theatre companies Theatre Replacement, Radix Theatre, The Chop Theatre and Roughhouse Productions.

Neworld Theatre's Camyar Chai and Marcus Youssef leased the office and invited Theatre Replacement to join them, as they had provided Theatre Replacement with a desk in their previous offices. When Neworld Theatre moved their head offices to PL 1422 (1422 William St in Vancouver), Theatre Replacement took over as head leasee, and invited Radix and Roughhouse to come along. The Chop Theatre joined the office shortly thereafter. The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival office was located directly across the hall at 300 - 640 West Broadway until December 2014.

Many Vancouver arts organizations share office space. It enables them to share valuable resources, cut costs and perpetuate a spirit of camaraderie typical of the Vancouver Theatre community. PL 1422 houses several of the Progress Lab companies Neworld Theatre, Rumble Theatre, Electric Company Theatre and Boca del Lupo. The Playwrights Theatre Centre (PTC) and Pi Theatre share offices in Vancouver's bustling Chinatown neighbourhood and offer desk rentals to artists as part of their collaborative work space, The Hub. The PuSh Festival, Touchstone Theatre, Music on Main and DOXA share a downtown office at 750 Hamilton Street.
