Pop-up plazas

We’ve partnered with business improvement associations (BIAs), local businesses, non-profit organizations, and community organizations to create more than 20 pop-up plazas in neighbourhood hubs throughout Vancouver in response to COVID-19. 

Pop-up plazas have been embraced by communities as outdoor spaces to socialize, share a coffee or a meal, enjoy a small concert, or simply sit and rest. 

As temporary spaces, most pop-up plazas include simple design and amenities. In partnership with plaza stewards and the broader community, we’re taking steps to upgrade a number of pop-up plazas to become long-term, higher-quality plazas that reflect and serve their communities.

What's happeningHelp shape upgrades coming to two pop-up plazas

Upgrades are being planned for the pop-up plazas at two locations. Your input on the proposed upgrades and design concepts will inform how these spaces evolve to become long-term, higher-quality, semi-permanent plazas.

18th Ave and Cambie St 

We’re seeking input on proposed upgrades and two design theme concepts.

13th Ave and Granville St

In partnership with the South Granville Business Improvement Association, we’re seeking input on proposed upgrades and a conceptual design.
