North East Exchange District Engineering Study

This study is now complete.

Detailed Design for Lily Street, Pacific Avenue and John Hirsch Place

Project update:

Construction of Lily Street and John Hirsch Way began on July 11, 2016. Weather permitting, it is expected that construction on Lily Street will be completed by mid-November and construction for John Hirsch Place will be completed by the beginning of September. View a detour map.

Open House:

The public was invited to an open house on January 28, 2016 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre to view proposed designs for the next phase of improvements in the North East Exchange District. The City presented concept designs for Lily Street and parts of John Hirsch Place for tentative construction in 2016, and parts of Pacific Avenue for tentative construction in advance of the 2017 Canada Games.

The public was also invited to provide their input through an online survey.

The Public Engagement Report provides a summary of the public engagement process undertaken and the feedback generated.

These projects are tailored to support the ongoing development and private investments in the area. Highlights of the projects include:

  • Renewing infrastructure.
  • Embracing historical components into the design.
  • Integrating art into the design of the streets.
  • Widening and lining sidewalks with trees and enhanced lighting.
  • Utilizing innovative and sustainable drainage designs.

This proposed work originated from the 2014 North East Exchange District Engineering Study, and follows the first successful construction phase in 2014 and 2015. The purpose of these collaborative efforts is to provide public rights-of-way that support this evolving and vibrant area.
