This is a reminder that there will be an open house this coming Saturday to hear ideas regarding the future of the Safeway site at Commercial & Broadway. This will be the first serious action regarding development in Grandview after the approval of the Community Plan this summer.
The “community social” will be hosted by developers Westbank Projects and the owners of the site, Crombie REIT. It will take place from 11:00am to 3:00pm on Saturday 8th October at Federico’s Supper Club, 1728 Commercial.
According to an article in the Courier, the developers/owners want “to brainstorm “a new urban typology for the city and for family living.”
This is an important site on the border of our neighbourhood and I hope many of you will take time out of your busy Thanksgiving Saturday to attend for a short while at least.
Update: The meeting has been cancelled due to the sudden death of architect Bing Thom. It will be rescheduled.
