There’s a new proposed design for the north plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery, which the DVBIA has been advocating for since 2013. What do you think? Attend the open house on Thursday, November 26 from 5-8pm at UBC Robson Square (beside the ice rink) and weigh in!

A bit of background:


Block 51, the 800-block of Robson Street (between Hornby and Howe) and the Vancouver Art Gallery’s North Plaza, has long been the centre for Vancouverites to socialize, and display civil democracy and creative expression.

Two timely initiatives are now driving the City of Vancouver’s interest in finding out how the public uses these spaces.  

While the projects are separate, the City is combining its investigation of their uses into one public dialogue. Specifically, it’s are investigating:

  • Transportation impacts and adjustments related to the potential permanent public plaza
  • Design possibilities and programming options for a year-round public square
  • The public's current and desired use of the 800-block of Robson Street
