Here’s a nifty idea for making the Jericho Lands development an even greater long-term success than you are hoping. Put money in the plan for a Broadway subway stop. Wave the plan at the Feds, where you probably have decent connections. Go transit-oriented.
Here’s the idea, pirated shamelessly.
At the 57th and Cambie property now under development, according to a CBC report:
A unique model for transit funding has been approved along the Canada Line in Vancouver.
The Onni Group — a real estate development company — will be paying for a new stop at Cambie Street and 57th Avenue, according to Vancouver Coun. Geoff Meggs.
“The area will be significantly transformed as a result of investments that flow from this,” said Meggs Wednesday….
. . . . Meggs says it’s unique for a developer to pay for a transit station, but highly beneficial for Onni in this case, as the entire development will become more desirable because of the new stop.
