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 the second episode of CF City Views, we’re going to the Fair! Of course we’re talking about Expo ’86 - Vancouver’s first big introduction to the world. While the Fair was happening, and indeed because the fair was happening, the downtown was evolving with the game-changing arrival of the SkyTrain and a new strategy for downtown housing called “Living First.” But not all changes were well-received. Ever heard of “the Great White Urinal?” This episode features a former downtown business figure, an influential Vancouver architect, and two CF employees.
