Recently, the Vancouver Park Board approved two different projects for the Kitsilano area. The first of which was a rooftop patio to be built onto the Boathouse Restaurant. The second of which involves allowing basketball courts to operate year round in the Kitsilano area.
The Boathouse Restaurant has been approved to develop a fifty-six seat outdoor rooftop patio. This will be located on the west side of the restaurant.
The patio will be subject to certain zoning regulations and will be open only until 9:30 pm most nights and 10:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
The Board also approved a change in the operation of basketball courts in the area. The current policy will now be amended to allow for their operation year round in Kitsilano Beach Park.
Both issues have generated some debate amongst Kitsilano residents. With the patio, some have been concerned about the noise and any subsequent issues resulting from this outdoor arena.
Citizens have however been involved in the planning of the patio and will continue to monitor it as it gets underway.
The year-round basketball will no doubt appeal to many Kitsilano residents. The area boasts a terrific vibe and these additions will no doubt increase its appeal.
For those seeking to buy a home or condo in Vancouver, the Kitsilano area is a great place to look. Kitsilano homes for sale and Kitsilano condos for sale will continue to provide buyers with a sound investment as well as offering them access to a vibrant amd engaged community.
