GWAC Zoom meeting, Dec 7th, 7:00 — The Proposed Development at the Safeway Site, Broadway & Commercial Drive

This is the biggest development proposal to hit East Vancouver in decades. The site has languished for a long time, but now the developer, Westbank Corp., is putting forward a massive three-tower proposal, with heights up to 30 storeys above a six-storey retail and office plinth and almost 700 residential units — market rentals and condos. The City of Vancouver has designated this piece of property as a “transit-oriented development” site with two and possibly three transit lines converging there.

The Westbank proposal is very dense — definitely NOT the more moderate, lower, mixed-height concept envisioned in the City’s approved Grandview-Woodland Community Plan.  

And the massive scale of the proposal threatens forever the very nature of the much-loved and low-rise Commercial Drive area.

Join Grandview-Woodland Area Council (GWAC) at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, December 7th, via Zoom, to learn more about the proposal and have your say on whether or not this is the way the city should proceed.
