CF City Views is a three part podcast series that profiles three eras of downtown city-building, paralleled with three eras of one of Cadillac Fairview's most iconic projects: CF Pacific Centre. Together, Brent Toderian, city planner and urbanist, and other experts will tell you how a very bold city and a very bold project supported each other over decades to achieve some really special community-building.
In this third episode of CF City Views, Vancouver goes for gold! We discuss the successful bid, and the massive challenge, to host the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. Brent chats with a former downtown business figure, an influential Vancouver architect, and two CF employees. Like Expo ‘86 before it, the Olympics ushered in a new era of Vancouver city-building, urban planning and inspired a dramatic redesign at CF Pacific Centre too. Buckle up! This is a big one.
