As we reach the last week of June we are excited to preview and share the North Plaza at the Vancouver Art Gallery as it nears completion!

For those who have not yet taken a peek at the new plaza, please note the next opportunity to see the plaza will be exclusively during the upcoming Canada Day celebrations and the 4th Annual Thai Festival on the weekend of July 22-23. The plaza will be closed in between and after these events through the end of summer 2017.

Earlier this month we had the honour to test the new pavers, while simultaneously testing popsicle flavours supplied by Johnny’s Pops, as a big thank you to the hard working on-site Jacob Brothers Construction team.

Bollards that double as seats!

This past weekend, the rest of Vancouver had the opportunity to preview the North Plaza’s soft opening in light of Vancouver International Jazz Festival‘s offering of free performances during their Downtown Jazz Weekend at the Georgia Street stage.

Thank you to Ema Peter Photography for previewing her beautiful captures from Jazz Fest opening weekend. We look forward to sharing more as the plaza progresses and once it is fully complete!

The Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza redevelopment team is comprised of Nick Milkovich Architects, Matthew Soules Architecture, and Hapa Collaborative. Learn more about the Plaza Redevelopment here: http://hapacobo.com/project/vancouver-art-gallery-north-plaza-redevelopment/
