SHAPING VANCOUVER 2016: WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT "THE DRIVE”?

Organization: 
Heritage Vancouver Society
Date of Event: 
Wednesday, May 18, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT "THE DRIVE”? Commercial Drive is perhaps the most vibrant, textured, and diverse street in Vancouver—outstanding for its unique sense of place and experience. As the city continues to grow eastward, the pressure to develop this area is mounting and becoming a reality. The changes on the table will introduce new typologies, such as towers, that will radically change the fabric of the street. Heritage Vancouver Society would like to explore how to address the need for additional density and transit within a framework that respects the character of the Drive and its remaining heritage assets.
