Here is an important date for the calendar for anyone interested in the future of Grandview, especially regarding development on its southern border.
On Saturday 8th October Westbank Properties will be holding an open house information session on the future of the Safeway site at Commercial & Broadway. The session will be from 11am to 3pm at Federico’s Supper Club, 1728 Commercial Drive.
The City’s vision for the site is for multiple towers from 12 to 24 storeys with a central public plaza. I believe they also propose that Safeway become a two-storey store. However, at City Hall in June, Safeway/Sobey’s said there was no way they would accept a two-storey grocery; a position that could adversely affect the space required for the public plaza.
It will be interesting to see how the developer is planning to square that circle.
