Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza Reopens

The following article was written by Carly Whetter, Communications Assistant at Tourism Vancouver.

After closing for renovations mid-2016, the new Vancouver Art Gallery (750 Hornby St.) north plaza has reopened after a $9 million dollar renovation. The previous design of wood mulch and center fountain are now gone, giving way to a new paved plaza with potted plants, casual seating, and a pavilion on the Howe Street side, offering refuge for commuters in the rainy months and as a potential tourism information centre in the summer.

The plaza has a capacity of 1,500 people when fully open, and the paved urban design is sure to become a year-round hub for both informal gatherings and large-scale festivals. Destination hotels and restaurants such as Rosewood Hotel GeorgiaFairmont Hotel VancouverHawsworth Restaurant and Nordstrom’s Bistro Verde overlook the plaza.
