National validation.

Vancouver’s Chinatown has been named a National Historic Site.

For all of us creating The Flats, it feels like the country has discovered Vancouver’s little secret. Most invigorating of all have been the comments in the Vancouver Sun by Kathy Gibler, executive director of the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. She talks about the neighbourhood’s historic architecture being nowhere in China, but an unprecedented blend of east and west—architectural possibility embraced from the start. In addition, she explains how the neighbourhood has always belonged to all Vancouverites and champions the new hot spots moving in—showing the ongoing desire for eclectic community. We are not alone in our vision, which is exactly as it should be. Chinatown is where it’s at. The Flats is on the edge of the officially protected area, which although a benefit, is almost irrelevant. Because with this new acclaim, the anticipated evolution of the entire neighbourhood will be all the more accelerated. The country is even flirting with UNESCO status. Read more from the Sun.
