Our vision establishes a Legacy Redevelopment Plan for the Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands. The plan not only acknowledges the history and current use of the development lands - it recognizes that future generations will live, work and play here as well. Our project is designed to support the following vision for the community, which is well defined in the OCP's guiding principles:
Complete and Compact:
There is ample area to support the densification within a compact, sustainable and highly livable urban community that provides a wide variety of housing choices with access to transit.
Accessible & Active:
The new neighbourhood park is programmed to encourage activity for people of all ages and abilities, and creates a pedestrian link from Lonsdale and 21st Street to the new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre.
Where sustainable, space for commercial uses has been provided to ensure employment opportunities are enhanced within the community. Commercial/retail space is provided at the northern urban plaza, across from the new HJRC, to maximize visibility and use.
