Mapping the Hedge City — Vancouver and Global Capital (Lecture and Free Webcast)
September 23, 2016 - 5:00pm - 8:30pm
SFU Vancouver
515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver

Twenty years ago, geographer David Harvey described London’s redeveloped Docklands as a “landing strip for capital” from investors around the world. Today, Vancouver has joined London, New York, Sydney and other nodes of a world network of “Hedge Cities”—places to buy real estate to store capital as insurance against an uncertain future. How are cities and public policy reshaped by a world of transnational investment?

SFU Vancouver - Harbour Centre
Room 1400, 515 West Hastings Street

Addressing our toughest challenges—such as climate change, housing affordability, inequality or xenophobia—requires broad public will and action. Yet, these challenges are also rooted in far-reaching and complex systems that include many different institutions and networks. To bring about the changes we need, we have to understand and work with both systems and democratic publics.

Reflecting the 1970s values of a livable city and quality of life, the area was developed with a mix of one-third non-market rental housing, co-ops and condos in a Garden City landscape setting on leased, City-owned lands.

During Placemaking Week, join us in launching a new series of tours on the Top 10. The tour of False Creek South will explore the community vision, planning, urban design, development and current issues shaping the future of this historic area.
