Built City Speaker Series | Triple Net Leases - Can Neighborhoods Survive Them?

Posted: Mon, 2019-01-07 13:23

With the overheated property market, small businesses are struggling to survive under the weight of "best and highest use" tax assessments. They are slowly disappearing, along with the vibrant streetscapes. Pedestrian oriented, small scale shops provide public spaces where we build community.

As cities strain under climate change, pressures and costs, social connection becomes increasingly important in maintaining the social fabric of civil society.

Join our panel and lively discussion to learn more about insight and policy reform for small business in the wake of Vancouver’s Triple Net Leases.

RAIC Thought Leader and Moderator Gloria Venczel will guide discussion following presentations from David Nishi-Bellingham, BC Director, AEC Property Tax, Jane and Karen Tenant, sisters/co-owners of Chocolate Mousse on Robson St., Michelle Barile, Executive Director of the West Broadway BIA and Marianne Amodio, Architect of the Hollywood Theatre Revitalization.
