Headings

 

Heading 1 – used for page titles

With its scenic views, mild climate, and friendly people, Vancouver is known around the world as both a popular tourist attraction and one of the best places to live.

Vancouver is also one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in Canada with 52 percent of the population speaking a first language other than English.

Heading 2 – used in the page body, in hierarchical order

An aboriginal settlement called Xwméthkwyiem, (“Musqueam,” from masqui, “an edible grass that grows in the sea”), near the mouth of the Fraser River, was present here at least 3,000 years ago.

At the time of first European contact in the late 18th century, the Musqueam and Squamish peoples had villages around present-day Vancouver, along with the Tsleil-Waututh, ancestors of today's Burrard Band in North Vancouver.

They were all Coast Salish First Nations, sharing cultural and language traits with people in the Fraser Valley and Northern Washington.

Heading 3

Vancouver has a moderate, oceanic climate. Protected by the mountains and warmed by the Pacific ocean currents, Vancouver is one of the warmest cities in Canada.

Although Vancouver has a reputation for rain, it actually ranks as the 9th rainiest location in Canada with Prince Rupert, Port Alberni, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Campbell River, Halifax, Sydney, and St. John's beating Vancouver for average yearly rainfall.

Heading 4

Vancouver's wettest months are November and December with an average precipitation of 182mm. And - with an average of just 41mm of precipitation - July and August are the driest months in Vancouver.

Project: 564 Beatty Street
Firm: IBI Group Architects
Developer: Reliance Properties Ltd.

564 Beatty Street addition from the rear

564 Beatty Street addition from the rear at nightThe four-storey addition to 564 Beatty has a restrained simplicity that sets up an articulated foil for the three storey heritage base. The replication of the footprint in the new construction provides two independent volumes and the reveal successfully separates the new from the heritage. The successful south face restoration has improved the life and richness of the plaza while fostering appropriate contextual planning. Overall, the resolution is both simple and elegant, complementing the existing street pattern and acting as a gateway to Beatty Street.

The Place Between Us

On display July 11 to August 7 on video screens (view a map)

The Place Between Us by Jason Nielsen

Description

According to a recent study, Vancouverites suffer from a high level of social isolation, contributed to by the rainy weather as well as economic shifts, immigration, and other social factors.

Artist Jason Nielsen experienced this as a newcomer to the city. His two video compositions titled The Place Between Us are meditations on isolation and coming together, using slow motion and mirroring techniques. The dreamlike images play in contrast to the busy context of advertising on the video screens. 

Bio

Jason Nielsen is an award-winning filmmaker whose short films have screened at festivals around the world. His work couples heightened visual realism with emotional themes, resulting in meditative reflections on self and society.

Nielsen’s work is in the collection of the National Library and Archives of Canada and The Douglas Archer Library at the University of Regina. Nielsen studied film production at The University of Regina and photography at Langara College in Vancouver.

What we heard at the workshops on focus areas and unique sites

March 9, 2016 – In October and November 2015, over 600 Cambie Corridor residents and other stakeholders participated in a series of workshops looking at six local sub-areas within the Cambie Corridor Phase 3 study area. Participants provided input on:

  • Proposed focus areas for considering potential change
  • Early ideas for new housing types, such as townhouses and other ground-oriented options
  • Key considerations for unique sites or areas within the Corridor

Read a summary of what we heard:

Workshop materials and summaries

What we're focusing on in Phase 3

Phase 3 will develop an in-depth plan for the areas within walking distance of rapid transit and explore opportunities to:

  1. Integrate more ground-oriented housing choices, such as townhouses and rowhouses
  2. Create more housing options for families with children
  3. Integrate an effective transition from apartment areas to surrounding lower-density neighbourhoods
  4. Consider long-term redevelopment options for larger, unique sites within the Corridor (like the Balfour site and King Edward Mall)
  5. Coordinate Phase 3 areas with major project sites (such as the RCMP lands and Langara Gardens)
  6. Coordinate amenities and supportive funding strategies like Community Amenity Contributions

Also included:

  • A public benefits strategy to give strategic direction on community facilities, parks, childcare, affordable housing, and more
  • A public realm plan to guide outdoor public features like sidewalk improvements, landscaping, and plazas for key areas of the corridor

Where we're focusing

The overall Phase 3 study area is from West 16th Avenue to the Fraser River between Oak and Ontario streets.

However, our discussion of potential land use changes will be focused in key areas that are:

  1. Within one block of Phase 2 areas
  2. Adjacent to large sites like the RCMP lands and Langara Gardens
  3. Unique and generally large sites like King Edward Mall
  4. Located in the Marpole buffer area, a small area close to Cambie Street that was identified for future planning in the Marpole Community Plan
  5. Located along Oak Street

The initial focus area will be refined through community dialogue and technical analysis early in Phase 3.

How we'll plan and engage with you

We’ll be going out into the community and meeting residents, business owners, and anyone else interested in the future of the corridor to talk about options and hear your views.

Your ideas and feedback will be important in helping to shape the plan.

Step 1: Launch and early dialogue (spring to fall 2015)

In step one, we will:

  • Raise awareness about Phase 3 of the planning program
  • Seek community input on focus areas and explore early ideas for potential land use change and new housing options
  • Refine focus areas based on community input and analysis

Step 2: Policy development (fall 2015 to fall 2016)

In step two, we will:

  • Work with the community to explore policy options for focus areas and identify preferred areas for land use change and new housing options
  • Seek input on draft public realm plan directions and public benefits strategy

Step 3: Draft plan (fall 2016 to winter 2017)

In step three, we will:

  • Prepare draft policy and land use directions for the plan
  • Invite you to review the draft plan, public realm plan, and public benefits strategy

Step 4: Plan approval (winter to spring 2017)

In step four, we will:

  • Modify and refine the plan based on your feedback
  • Present the plan to City Council for consideration

During Phase 3 of the Cambie Corridor Planning Project, one way we'll engage with you is in small group focus, to encourage constructive dialogue on issues.

Cambie Corridor Plan vision

The Cambie Corridor Plan sets out a long-term vision for growth that will give residents opportunities to live, work, shop, play, and learn in the area.

The plan also reflects a commitment to social diversity and addresses affordable housing issues.

To accomplish these goals, the plan envisions a denser mix of housing and work space with transit and cleaner energy sources. There will be a focus on key amenities, such as shopping, local gathering places, improved parks, community facilities, and civic spaces.

Job space will be focused strategically in neighbourhood centres, existing shopping areas, and areas located close to transit stations.

Cambie Corridor planning principles

  1. Provide land use that optimizes the investment in transit.
  2. Provide a complete community.
  3. Create a walkable and cycleable corridor of neighbourhoods seamlessly linked to public transit.
  4. Focus intensity, mix, and community activity at stations and other areas with strategic opportunities for sustainability, renewable energy, and public amenity.
  5. Provide a range of housing choices and affordability.
  6. Balance city-wide and regional goals with the existing community and its context.
  7. Ensure job space and diversity.

Planning program phases

Phase 1: Planning principles and interim rezoning policy (July 2009 – January 2010)

Phase 1 delivered a set of planning principles (above) for the Cambie Corridor, as well as an interim rezoning policy, adopted by Council on January 22, 2010.

Phase 2: Core area development policy (January 2010 – May 2011)

Phase 2 produced the Cambie Corridor Plan, approved by Council May 9, 2011, and repealed the interim rezoning policy.

The plan includes policies on land use, design, and built form for sites along the Corridor's major streets.

Phase 3: Transit-influenced area policy (currently in progress)

Phase 3 builds on Phase 2, focusing on land use and new housing opportunities for the surrounding neighbourhoods that are within walking distance of Canada Line stations (existing and future).

This phase will also deliver:

  • A public benefits strategy that will guide the development of community facilities, parks, and childcare centres in the Corridor
  • A public realm plan for features like sidewalk improvements, landscaping, and plazas in the Corridor

Policies and land use changes developed and approved in Phase 3 will be added to the Cambie Corridor Plan.
