Community Information Sessions & City Led Public Open House – on behalf on the Crombie and Westbank Broadway and Commercial Planning Team #Safewaysite

Dear Friends, 

On behalf of the Crombie and Westbank Broadway and Commercial Planning Team, we are excited to be reaching out to you today with an update on our rezoning application for the Safeway site at 1780 East Broadway, Vancouver.

It’s been a while since we’ve been able to update you all on what’s been happening. Since our last Public Open House (October 2020), the team has been working through comments received from the city, and the community on the proposal. As a result, a revised application was submitted in September 2021 in response to the feedback.  We’re excited to share this revised submission with you and to take it forward to Council for their consideration in the coming months.

Community Information Sessions & City Led Public Open House
As someone who’s expressed interest in our project, we would like to let you know that we will be hosting two in-person information sessions with the community, to walk through the application and answer any questions. Due to COVID, the sessions will be limited in their capacity, so if you would like to attend, please sign up via our website at your earliest convenience to secure your seat. LINK HERE.

There are two options for the sessions:

  • Friday November 19, 2021 at 9am (at the Cultch Theatre), and
  • Friday November 19, 2021 at 10am (at the Cultch Theatre).

If you are unable to make either of the above sessions, not to worry! These sessions are simply to complement the City’s own Public Open House for the project which will be hosted virtually until December 5, 2021. If you’d like to check out the City’s Public Open House, please click here.

Like many of you, we are excited to be moving forward with our application for this important site in the neighborhood. For the past 4.5 years, we have been working to create a concept for the property that balances community and city needs and priorities. We are excited to share the latest iteration with you to achieve this and look forward to reconnecting on this exciting project for Grandview Woodlands.

From everyone on the Broadway Commercial Planning Team, we hope you are keeping healthy and well. We look forward to connecting with you again soon.
