There’s not much data on this page except for a couple of renditions of what the new expansion of Aberdeen Centre in Richmond will look like. However, it is exciting to think of transforming central Richmond into a more interesting urban environment. I can only hope for a friendlier walking environment. Richmond’s core is still very much geared for moving around in a private vehicle. Sidewalks are simply afterthoughts. Let’s hope that changes.
I can’t tell from the renditions if there will much integration with the Canada Line’s Aberdeen Station. Certainly, I would much prefer not to visit Richmond by car on weekends. All the parking lots are nightmares. I’ve taken to paying for parking in Richmond so as not to stress myself unnecessarily while fighting, literally fighting, for a parking spot.
