The downtown waterfront – the area surrounding the Waterfront Station – could well be the most important and most exciting urban redevelopment opportunity in Canada. Much of the land lies “in waiting” as either parking lots for cars or for freight trains. The Waterfront Station, with its 50,000 passengers a day, is the ideal nexus for what could be a creative renewal of this important area.

Watch the recording of session one here.

The second session in this SFU Vancouver Lunch ‘n’ Learn series  will further explore the possibilities for the central waterfront area.

  • How can the potential for this crucially important area be realized?
  • How might the various stakeholders involved plan together to redevelop this area to benefit everyone?
