Steveston Waterfront Development

Friday, February 17th, 2012
Public open house on Thursday, February 23, 2012 from 5:30pm – 8:30pm.  Brief presentation starts at 6pm.  Also on Saturday, February 25, 2012 from 12:30pm – 2:30pm. Brief presentation starts at 1pm.  Location: Lord Byng Elementary School gym, 3711 Georgia Street, Richmond, BC.
Steveston waterfront development:  construction of the last development parcel at Imperial Landing is proceeding, which consists of six low-rise buildings with a mixture of residential and commercial uses.  The existing zoning restricts commercial uses to those that support the maritime economy, which include industrial and manufacturing uses.  Onni is contemplating submitting an application to add permitted uses to the existing zoning which allow for commerical/retail uses that will better serve the community’s needs.
Onni wants your feedback on what types of commercial/retail uses you feel are appropriate for the community.  Onni rep and a third party facilitator will be on-hand to answer any questions regarding the proposal and to gather community feedback.
Contact Brendan Yee with any questions or concerns regarding the open house at or 604-602-7711

Girls’ Night Out in Steveston

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Merchants often overhear mothers saying that they will return to a store, without their child in tow, so that they can concentrate fully, while women of all ages feel limited to shopping on the weekends, and crave time to be out on the town past 6pm. The Steveston Merchants Association (SMA) is about to lend a hand! SMA shops will stay open late (see list below) on Thursday December 1st, and girlfriends will cut loose and hit the streets of Steveston for the first annual Girls’ Night Out (GNO). This festive event is an opportunity for women to visit SMA member businesses after hours to get a head start on Christmas shopping, dining, connecting with friends, old and new, and celebrating the upcoming holiday season. What about your significant other? He can either stay home with the kids, or the kids can attend a special Kids’ Night Out at Cartwheels, while husbands head off to the designated ‘Man Cave’, O’Hare’s GastroPub!

To start the evening, from 5:00 p.m. onwards women can enjoy appetizers, drinks or a meal at Tapenade Bistro, Dave’s Fish and Chips or Sockeye City Grill.

From 6-9 p.m., it is shop ‘til you drop, at some of Steveston’s finest stores and services including A Monkey Tree, Basic Basics Lingerie, Bliss, Harmony Dental Studio, Jet Lag Travel & Fashion Boutique, Pharmasave, Pieces, Prickly Pear Garden Centre, Sinfully the Best, Splash Toy Shop, Treasures Boutique and Violet Hill Fashion Boutique.

Each retailer is offering special incentives for GNO shoppers, with many shops offering a gift to accompany a minimum purchase. Visit three of the participating SMA businesses and GNO participants will be entered to win a Steveston Shopping Spree.

From 8:30 p.m. onwards Blue Canoe Waterfront Restaurant is hosting an after party, which is bound to be the talk of the town. The party is a ticketed event ($20), with a limited number of tickets available at Blue Canoe Waterfront Restaurant, O’Hares Liquor Store and Violet Hill Fashion Boutique.
