Here are some images of a fantasy structure for the Broadway/Commercial Safeway site. It is a sketchup model that I made. While crazy it does present many elements of the discussion around this site that I have heard so far. It is about 15 storeys high, eclectic, bikeable, neighbourly, has green space, visual interest and there is a small plaza. It would also be expensive and while the kind of place a starving artist might dream up, not the place a starving artist could likely afford. ^WVDK

could we allow the lots with single family homes to be split into two properties with shared courtyard spaces? ^LJT

Could laneways have small cafes in them... and along victoria make it easier for people to redevelop for mixed use? ^LJT

Kaffeine Coffee Shop in London. Kaffeine’s baristas must have at least 3 years of training before brewing behind the shop’s bar and it shows in the way they perfectly craft latte art.

This shows a remade laneway in Washington DC. Note the medium-rise buildings, as are found near Commercial Drive. Its connecting laneways--perhaps even portions of the Drive itself--could be remade as places that are open for retail business, still navigable by cars, but which also have design elements that prioritize walking and cycling, e.g. speedbumps, good lighting, attractive pavements, better drainage; and elements that beautify and promote local culture [e.g. planters, banners]. ^LA

Cady's Alley in Georgetown is the only example of a woonerf in Washington, DC (at least that I know of). A woonerf is a street designed to prioritize non-motorized uses, while still permitting motor vehicles to navigate the spaces slowly and cautiously.

Here's a very creative, pedestrian-priority use of a laneway in an inner city. This art installation of umbrellas is temporary and would still allow passage of emergency vehicles. Colour makes this a much more appealing environment to walk, and encourages people to get out of there cars and interact. Could some of the laneways off Commercial Drive not be beautified like this? ^LA

'Umbrella Sky' This installation is an initiative by the council in Agueda, Portugal and is a part of an art festival called Agitagueda. Photo by Diana Tavares.
