Walking Tour: A planning tour of Vancouver's West End

Saturday, August 11, 2012 | 10am to 12pm
Tourguide: Gordon Price
Tickets: $10 Heritage Vancouver members; $15 non-member
Meet in Barclay Heritage Square, in Vancouver's West End

Join Gordon Price, Director of the SFU City Program, for a planning tour of Vancouver's West End. The West End reveals about eight different architectural stages, from fine wooden mansions to functional wooden walk-ups, not to mention more highrise towers than any other neighbourhood in Canada.

But how did it all come about – and why?

Gordon Price explains some of the planning theory and trends that shaped the West End – and some of the lessons to be learned.
