Update, March 18, 2011: The Museum of Vancouver now has podcasts and photos up on their blog!
I went to Mini-Walk B, which centred around transit-oriented planning and the development of Commercial-Broadway Station. Andrew Curran, one of our planners at TransLink, led the walk along with Graham McGarva, a principal from VIA Architecture who worked on the Millennium Line and Commercial Station in particular. And we met at Commercial and 6th, which was where two interurban lines used to meet in the past!
We learned a great deal about transit, land use and the Commercial corridor on the walk—including the astounding fact that the BC Tel payphone on the corner of Commercial and Broadway used to be the highest grossing payphone in the region! But since the Museum recorded all the walks as podcasts and the wrapup talk as a video, to be posted in a couple of weeks, I’ll refrain from stealing their thunder and link to those when they’re up. I really think you’re going to enjoy the discussions!
And until then: photos!
You can also find a few more photos of the Moving Through series at Jason Vanderhill’s Flickr stream.
Thanks again to the Museum of Vancouver for such a great event!
