What is the Broadway Plan?

As set forth by the Vancouver government, the Broadway Plan is a comprehensive, long-term effort to revitalize and energize a stretch of the city in conjunction with the new Broadway subway line. Estimated to take place across 30 years, the plan was initially envisioned in October 2019 and looks to welcome new retail, jobs and residences in Mount Pleasant, Fairview and Kitsilano.

The plan comprises an area extending from Vine Street to the west all the way to Clark Drive at the east, with Broadway in the center. 1st Avenue and 16th Avenue represent the north and south boundaries of the plan, respectively.

What stage is the plan in now?

The fourth and final community engagement period for the project recently ended. The public has had a chance to get involved at four different internals for over a year as a loose framework for the project has been developed. Over 6,300 people visited the plan’s website to review materials and take part in a survey across a recent three-week period. In-person events, open houses and informational materials were also made available during this time.

The draft is expected to be reviewed by the City Council this month.

What are the goals of the Broadway Plan?

The ambitious effort looks to support an affordable and diverse neighbourhood that includes reconciliation with First Nations and Indigenous communities. It aims to welcome and grow local businesses while enhancing the distinct and unique nature of the neighbourhood. The plan strives for sustainability while creating new and improving upon existing green and public spaces. The neighbourhoods wants to offer an attractive space where everyone can live, work, study and play with Broadway as a vibrant artery.

How will Broadway change?

It’s speculated by 2050, the area will change drastically. It expects between 40,000 and 50,000 new residents, which would be more than a 50% increase of the current population. In tandem, housing would increase by a similar percentage, adding between 24,000 and 30,000 new homes. Of those new homes, about two-thirds will be market rental, below-market rental or no-market rental housing, with the remainder being ownership housing.

Lastly, 33,000 to 42,000 new jobs are estimated to be added to the economy.
