Grandview Boundary, stretching from Slocan Street to Boundary between Grandview Highway and Broadway, is a vibrant neighborhood with a mixture of commercial, industrial, single-family and multi-family uses.

Overview

Grandview Boundary is a vibrant neighborhood with a mixture of commercial, industrial, single-family and multi-family uses. This district is 200 acres and stretches from Slocan Street to Boundary between Grandview Highway and Broadway. The large big-box stores provide an economic engine for the area and has seen a transition from residential to industrial to high-tech tenants with the anchor for the area being the Broadway Tech Center. With two sky train stations in the area, it is easily connected to downtown and even has a creek for you to walk down and clear your mind.

History

In 1861 Colonel Richard Moody staked his claim on 1.14 square kilometers of land after breaking through a thick forest. Meanwhile, the Hastings Townsite was growing and the Renfrew District saw a real population began to arrive in the 1920s. After World War II there was a housing crisis and 120 acres of empty land were developed around Grandview Highway. As a tribute to the war, City councilor Halford Wilson named all of the streets after wartime personalities. In the 1950s the area began to transition into more industrial uses. As the industrialists vacated in the 1980s big box retail stores took their place. Finally, in the 2000s, following the dot com boom, there was yet another transition as the area started to attract high tech tenants and the Broadway Tech Centre was completed in 2001.
