The Stadium Neighbourhood planning process took place from fall 2017 to spring 2019. 

A proposed Plan Concept was presented to UBC’s Board of Governors in June of 2019, and two alternative development scenarios were presented to the Board of Governors Property Committee in September of 2020.

In September of 2020, staff reported back to the Board of Governors Property Committee with a requested status update on alternative development scenarios exploring lower residential densities and building heights to better understand economic, urban design and sustainability implications, as well as the implications on the proposed number of UBC community housing units.

Next Steps

The timing and proposed form of development of the future Stadium Neighbourhood will be considered and adjusted in the context of the long term vision for the campus which will be developed through Campus Vision 2050, which will update UBC’s two key land use policy documents, the Land Use Plan and the Vancouver Campus Plan.
