Hi Stephen,

I’m a regular reader of your blog…. I thought you (and your blog readers) might be interested in some open houses this week on the Central Waterfront Hub Study –

The main objectives of the Central Waterfront Hub program are to:
Create a transportation hub which better integrates the many transit modes which converge in this area
Skytrain, Canada Line, West Coast Express, Seabus, Helijet and numerous bus lines.
Establish planning and urban design guidelines for the various development sites which exist in the area.
Introduce measures to enhance the public realm streets and open spaces – in this important location.

A draft concept plan for the area around Waterfront Station will be presented at the open house (and will be posted online shortly thereafter).   It’s exciting, visionary stuff.

There’s some info on the website: vancouver.ca/hub

Open Houses are:

Thursday, April 24th, 2008  3-7pm in Waterfront Station
Saturday, April 26, 2008  10am-2pm in the Central Library Concourse

Hope to see you there!
