Vancouver has successful examples of community-friendly developments underpinned by a heritage building or historical context. They range from new housing units in historic neighbourhoods such as Mole Hill in the West End or Koos Corner in Strathcona to large-scale developments such as the Arbutus Lands. Join Scot Hein, former senior urban designer for the City of Vancouver and University of British Columbia, and an adjunct professor in UBC’s Master of Urban Design Program, to explore these and other examples including how they came about, the history and context, and lessons learned. Scot will discuss the role of community, how local narrative and meaning were revealed, the value of authenticity and the considerations for adding housing to neighbourhoods. Can heritage values and local context underpin and enhance the forthcoming citywide plan for Vancouver?
