The Broadway and Commercial Safeway Project Team, is pleased to invite you to a public information session at the Croatian Cultural Centre at 3250 Commercial Dr. Please note the address. The original invitations sent to the community by mail contained an error. We apologize for the confusion.
The revitalization of the Safeway site at Broadway and Commercial is an incredible city-building opportunity.
We consider the redevelopment and reimagination of the property an incredible city-building opportunity that will reimagine transit-oriented development in Vancouver.
Our context-sensitive approach will consider the property’s dynamic location adjacent to a major transit node and steps from the culturally diverse Commercial Drive.
We envision a community-based design that will respect the character of the neighbourhood and pioneer a new urban model of family living.
The project team is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our project architect, Bing Thom, who was passionately involved in the initial ideas for the Safeway site.
Bing Thom was a visionary architect and his enthusiasm for the transformative power of architecture inspired many both near and far. His human-scale approach invigorated the public realm, as he believed in “building beyond buildings,” creating beautiful spaces for the community.
We are more committed than ever to doing great work and living up to his legacy.
Numerous publications, research labs, and international organizations have been dealing with the question: “What makes us happy?” Vancouver’s Wellbeing Dialogue addressed this exact issue with a highly engaging and interactive talk hosted by the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Gardens.
When was the last time you heard a national politician talk thoughtfully about cities and urban policy or make them an integral part of his or her agenda?
