In April, Vancouver City Council, with DVBIA conditional approval, agreed to permanently close 800 Robson to create a new public plaza - exactly what 11,000 people said they wanted as part of our Re-Imagine Downtown 2040 process last year! Already underway through early September is extensive maintenance work on the south stairs of the VAG being done by the Province. Gotta fix those leaks! Starting July 9, bistro tables and chairs and umbrellas return for every day, everybody use. Hold meetings there, eat your lunch or just people watch.
Watch the City's website for upcoming opportunities to participate in consultation for the permanent plaza. Read more about Block 51 (including 800 Robson and the north plaza of the VAG)
