VCC proposes redevelopment of property to include residential towers, new educational space


In its recent campus plan, Vancouver Community College proposes redeveloping its east Vancouver property to create new housing and learning spaces. VCC President Ajay Patel noted that the province’s funding for the Centre for Clean Energy and Automotive Innovation enables the college to move to the next stage of its campus plan, which includes developing new educational facilities and a series of residential towers, which could provide over 3,000 homes. “It is unlocking the potential to serve the whole region in ways beyond our academic mission,” said Patel. VCC hopes to submit a rezoning application to the city by the end of 2024.
