  • The DVBIA’s Roundtable

    Aug 14, 2018



    On July 12th, the DVBIA held a Roundtable event with special guest Kaye Krishna. Kaye is the General Manager of Development, Buildings, and Licensing for the City of Vancouver, and was there to share information and updates about her portfolio, including building permits and the recently launched commercial renovation improvement project. She also shared details on cannabis and liquor regulations, which were of interest to many of our members.

    • Places for People

      Aug 14, 2018



      In the summer of 2017, the City of Vancouver’s Department of Planning, Urban Design and Sustainability launched Places for People Downtown, an engagement campaign on the future of downtown Vancouver’s public spaces over the next 30 years. 

      The DVBIA partners with the City of Vancouver on the management and activation of public spaces and we have seen great success with our well-used perches and laneways. We plan to create and activate many more beautiful, safe, and accessible outdoor places throughout downtown in the coming years. 

      The City has developed a draft vision statement for downtown and a set of five goals to help deliver it. The vision and goals will inform the next phases of Places for People Downtown. We’d love for you to share your thoughts on City’s goals for public spaces by filling out this short 2 minute survey…

    • Retail Blood Drive

      Aug 14, 2018



      Canadian Blood Services is hosting a month-long blood drive throughout the month of August and they want your business to get involved! Below is more information from the Canadian Blood Services team on how you and your business are able to help.

      In BC, Canadian Blood Services needs to collect 10,000 blood donations each month to serve hospital patients. 1 in 2 people can donate, however, only 1 in 60 do. Canadian Blood Services needs your help to meet the needs of hospital patients this summer!

      Unfortunately, the need for blood does not take a summer vacation and the Downtown Vancouver Clinic needs 800 donations every month. However, your group could have a direct impact on saving lives for BC hospital patients this summer.

      Every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood and often from more than one generous donor. Some examples include:

      • Up to 8 donors a week to help someone with leukaemia 
      • Up to 5 donors to help someone undergoing cancer treatment
      • Up to 50 donors to help someone in a car crash 
      • Up to 2 donors to help someone who needs brain surgery 
      • Up to 5 donors to save someone who needs heart surgery 
      • Up to 2 to 8 donors to help someone with internal bleeding
      • Up to 2 donors a day to help someone undergoing a bone marrow transplant
      • Up to 4 donors a month to help someone with Aplastic Anemia
      • Up to 2 donors for a hip replacement

      WHAT IS THE DRIVE?

      The Retail Blood Drive is a month-long drive to get as many Retail Store Teams into our clinics in August! Like shopping and filling the bags with merchandise, we need you to fill our clinics to save lives of hospital patients. Whether you are a seasoned donor or new to donating, we need you this month.

      HOW YOU CAN HELP?

      Pick a date for your team or group to donate together, or if one date doesn’t work for everyone, donate individually as every donation counts.

      NOW WHAT?

      TEXT, CALL or EMAIL NOW to get started! Razvan Sichitiu, Territory Manager at
      604-787-3247 or razvan.sichitiu@blood.ca

    • The Clean Team

      Aug 14, 2018



      The Clean Team is co-managed by Securiguard and the DVBIA. The team is on the streets of downtown Vancouver 7-days a week, upholding the DVBIA’s mission statement to keep the downtown area clean, safe, and a fun place to be. Within the busy downtown core is a thriving hub of businesses, events, festivals, and activities and maintaining its cleanliness is vital for making the city a welcoming place for everyone.

      The Clean Team is responsible for basic street cleaning, identifying cleanliness issues, and assisting visitors by giving basic directions.

       The team:

       The Clean Team is made up of Jacky, Jesse, Nomer, Sam and Aaron

       Primary goals:

       The team’s primary goals consist of:

      • Perform micro-cleaning services on sidewalks and in other public spaces.
      • Report cleanliness and graffiti issues to the appropriate organizations.
      • Collect discarded sharps
      • Assist in the activation of DVBIA placemaking initiatives and sponsored events by physically setting up and taking down required equipment.
      • Snow Removal
      • Leaf Blowing
      • Collect data relating to sharps in order to help facilitate harm reduction
      • Respond to immediate areas of concern as reported by key stakeholders

      Alongside the work of the Clean Team, the DVBIA outsources the company GreenGo for power washing and Goodbye Graffiti for the removal of graffiti throughout downtown.

      The Clean Team is provided as an additional service as part of the City’s initiative to focus more on the business community and attracting people to the downtown core as well as further complimenting the services already offered. The team is committed to ensuring that downtown Vancouver is as clean and welcoming as possible. 

      The team uses an app called VanConnect via their mobile devices. It is an application that allows them to input data and monitor and track issues relating to cleanliness in the downtown region. The app also allows them to speak internally to one another, highlighting key areas that need attending to, and permits them to send data directly to the city.

      The clean team is an integral part of making downtown Vancouver a clean, safe and welcoming place for everyone to be.

    • Tangible Interaction

      Aug 14, 2018



      Our newest laneway project, Ackery’s Alley, was publicly launched last week. It includes an exciting and innovative installation from Tangible Interaction, which taps into some of the very basic levels of human instincts, to play and to explore. We caught up with Alex Beim, Founder and Creative Director of Tangible Interaction on his experience, his work and upcoming projects.

      Tell us a bit about your background as an artist, how Tangible Interaction was formed and some of the work you have done up to this point?

      After almost twenty years of working in design and advertising, I decided it was time to move. Having had a very successful career in both spaces, there was something very profound missing. I really wanted to make a difference in the world by creating art that would have a real impact in our lives, something that could touch people, make them curious, and have them feel connected with their bodies, spaces, and other people too. So back in 2006, I had an idea to create large, helium-filled inflatable balls that would light up when people touch them.

      By 2007 I had a prototype and it was everything I thought it would be and more. By 2008 I was being contracted to bring them to festivals in Europe and licensed them to Blue Man Group and Cirque du Soleil. I started Tangible in 2008 and I have been working with my team for 10 years now. We have worked on so many projects in so many places. About 4 years ago I felt I wanted to do more in my own city and fortunately today I can say that we are. We have done permanent and temporary projects for Science World, the Aquarium, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Yaletown BIA, West End BIA, Vancouver Olympics, VPL, BC Hydro, Westbank, Tractor Foods and now a key permanent project for the Downtown Vancouver BIA.

       

      Your installation FIELD is the highlight of the DVBIA’s newly developed Ackery’s Alley. Why do you think this installation is important to Vancouver and what will it bring to the space, the city and its residents and visitors?

      As naturally beautiful as Vancouver is, the city needs more surprises. We need more unexpected places where we are invited to play, to hang out with friends and also potentially make new ones. We need spaces where we can be curious and creative, where we can engage all our senses, where we can move, dance and be silly. I want my city to be known for all the unexpected things that are waiting to be discovered, like a large musical instrument in a back-alley.

      FIELD sounds like a very unique and interesting installation, how does it work exactly?

      FIELD is comprised of 35 lights that point at the ground and are arranged on a grid pattern of 5 by 7 under an overpass.

      From afar and if nobody is present, the piece is silent, the lights slowly animate by changing size but just in white. Each beam gets larger and smaller, resembling a breathing pattern. When a person puts their hand under the beam or when walking under the light all the lights change mode and reduce their size to about a foot in diameter, except the light being played with. The light that is affected will change colour and size according to the person's height or hand movement. It will also play a unique sound. Each one of the 35 lights plays a different sound that has been created as a composition people can play.



      You collaborated with the celebrated Vancouver-based composer Adam Lastiwka on this project, can you tell us more about this?

      Working with Adam was incredible. When we brought him in, he got the idea right away. This is not a common piece of music, every sound can be played at any time and in any order, either one at a time or all 35 and the composition has to always sound great. He did that, every time we got a sample it was very exciting to play with the lights and see how it felt. I think people will love the experience, and the composition is a huge part of it.

      What’s next for you and Tangible? After FIELD is installed what is the next big project?

      Right after FIELD, we are installing a very large piece in Squamish, it is a private commission for a very large community that is being developed. Our project is called SUMMIT and just to give you an idea of the size we will be controlling 56,000 LEDs independently to create a beautiful center piece to a building.

      Ackery’s Alley is located at 675 Smithe Street and will be open to the public from August 9, 2018. You can find out more about Tangilbe and the work they do here.

    • AGM Sustainability Award

      Jul 10, 2018


      This year the DVBIA gave SMAK our Sustainability award

      This year at AGM, we had a brand new award that we were very excited about. In recent months, we began to notice, more than ever, our members’ outstanding efforts in sustainability. We saw businesses adopt environmentally-friendly practices, setting the tone for their colleagues in the downtown core. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that we had many businesses to choose from when deciding who would receive our first annual Sustainability Award.

      With so many inspiring and innovative members to choose from, this year’s Sustainability Award went to SMAK. 


                                                      Owners of SMAK

      SMAK is known in Vancouver as purveyors of healthy fast food. Their name means “tasty” in many languages, and it’s definitely reflective of the food that you find within. With two locations in the downtown core, you’ve hopefully had a chance to try their delicious, healthy fare, including salads, curries, and smoothies, among many other offerings. 

      But beyond their amazing food, SMAK’s values are to provide meals that are local, compostable, and above all, sustainable. Whatever you order from SMAK comes in a completely compostable container. They are striving to become a zero-waste facility, and we are so proud of their efforts. They even grow their own herbs and greens, and provide education and awareness about sustainability with each of their healthy meals.

    • Granville Spotlight - John Fluevog

      Jul 10, 2018


      The Granville St John Fluevog is proudly the oldest of all existing Fluevog stores and has been providing footwear for the people of Vancouver since 1970. 

      First off, tell us a bit about yourself and how you got started in the industry.

      My name is Patrick Davidson and I am the manager of the John Fluevog shoe store on Granville street. I was born and raised in Edmonton Alberta and went to the University of Alberta, studying Earth and Atmospheric Science. After that, I studied Public Relations at Grant MacEwan University. Eight years ago, I had enough of the cold weather and decided to move to this beautiful city! I also have family and friends in Vancouver, so it made it a lot easier for me to make the move. How did I end up in retail, you might ask? I've always had an interest in fashion. After years of the corporate life, why not? I had always kept a part-time job in retail while living here in Vancouver and finally decided to take the plunge and make it my full-time job just over a year ago. 

      Tell us about your store and the John Fluevog brand.  

      The Granville store is located in the heart of the Granville Street entertainment and shopping district. John Fluevog Shoes has been serving the good Fluevogers of Vancouver since 1970. As one of the first Fox & Fluevog stores, JF Shoes Granville is proudly the oldest of all the existing Fluevog stores and has showcased many rock stars who have played the Commodore across the street. Come in and experience the history of John Fluevog!

         

      Why is Granville Street a good fit for a John Fluevog store?

      The energy on Granville street is synonymous with the design of our shoes! We are ever-changing and creating shoes that are ahead of the times. You don't see our shoes on the masses and that's what I love about our unique product. What I love about our customers is that they range from rockers to symphony attendees and everything in between. You'd be surprised, but we have a style for everyone! We have a really loyal following here at the Granville store and people make it a point to stop in before a concert for their next memorable shoe! It goes hand in hand! We like to think we're saving lives here with our shoes.




      What is next for the Fluevog empire? Any exciting sales or announcements?

      Over the last several years John Fluevog shoes have been slowly expanding across Canada and the US and now we’ve recently opened our newest store in Amsterdam! What I’m most proud of is working for such an inspiring local company that started right here in Vancouver. John’s passion for art and business is shown in his ability to create unique soles for unique souls and has stood the test of time as he's been making shoes since 1970. Our design studio is located at our Gastown location and you’ll still see John Fluevog riding his bike into the store there. We have been featured recently in Vogue and Opening Ceremony and many famous people wear our shoes such as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Alice Cooper. We are currently in the midst of our "John Fluevog thinks you’re Awesome" sale...so why don’t you come by and snag yourself a pair.

    • Plenty of Plates

      Jul 10, 2018


      Plenty of Plates is a 4-hour team-building experience that gives those who live in the Downtown East Side an opportunity to have a sit-down three-course meal.

      Whether hidden or visible, poverty continues to plague our city and the recent Vancouver Homelessness Count shows that things are only getting worse. It is easy to ignore the problem and go about our usual day, but many businesses are taking an empathetic and active approach to the problem by connecting with people affected by extreme poverty through Plenty of Plates.

         

         

      Plenty of Plates is a hands-on team-building experience that makes a real difference for our neighbours in the Downtown Eastside. Teams work together to run the historic Save On Meats diner by cooking and serving a 3-course meal to our city’s marginalized and less fortunate people who rarely, if ever, get a sit-down restaurant experience. 
      The extraordinary night not only helps people in need, it creates powerful and lasting joys, insights, and memories for the team. This is why companies like Apple and RYU Apparel have participated multiple times.

         
         

      iQMetrix was the pioneering partner of Plenty of Plates and have their office near Waterfront Station. Krystal Ho, Director of Corporate Relations said "Our office is just 2 blocks up from the most impoverished postal code in BC! We are so lucky and sometimes we forget it. Rolling up our sleeves, going in and preparing nutritious warm meals for those who may not know where their next one is coming from, makes a real impact - not just for the residents of the Downtown East Side, but important for our staff as well."

      Check out this video to see what it's all about.

      Do you want to understand more about the problems of poverty in Vancouver? Are you looking to strengthen your company culture and do something together outside of the store or office? Is your company making an impact in the community?
