Robert Fung’s Gastown – Tour and Reception
Monday, October 26, 2009
Time: 5:30pm to 9:00pm
Location: Meet at Gassy Jack’s Statue, Maple Tree Square
Tickets: $100 (tax receipt issued)

Heritage Vancouver invites you to join Robert Fung, the President of the Salient Group, for a personal guided tour of his Water Street and Maple Tree Square projects – the Alhambra, the Garage, the Cordage, the Grand, and the Terminus. This is a unique opportunity to see the interior of some of these buildings and experience how Robert’s work is transforming Maple Tree Square and Water Street, Vancouver’s historic birthplace. Project architect Mark Ostry, of Acton Ostry Architects, will provide a detailed look at how his architectural ideas shaped the final building designs. Scot Hein, senior urban designer with the City of Vancouver, will provide an overview of the City’s plans for Maple Tree Square.

Robert Fung has a passion for redeveloping and reinterpreting heritage buildings for modern, urban life and for reviving old neighbourhoods as vibrant and integrated communities. Following the tour there will be an opportunity to talk with Robert about his vision and how these projects contribute to the revitalization of Gastown, to the City, to the local economy, to the tourism industry, and to the future of Old Vancouver.

This event is of particular interest to architects, developers, planners, decision makers and people who are passionate about the future of Gastown.

The event begins in the Heart of Old Vancouver at Gassy Jack’s Statue on Maple Tree Square and ends with a private reception at the Canvas Lounge at Powell and Columbia. Canvas, a world class, full service venue for special events, is located in the historic City Hotel which was built in stages between 1905 and 1912.

$100 includes the tour, conversation, and a private reception with hors d'oeuvres and a sampling of wines in the Canvas Lounge. All proceeds from this fundraising event go to support the preservation of Vancouver’s built heritage.
