The UBC Community

December 12, 2010

Those local to Vancouver probably know that UBC has been undergoing a transformation over the past fifteen years.  It’s gone from an “ivory tower” on the point with huge volumes of car traffic, congestion and largely commuter students to a bucolic community with most (and eventually all) the amenities one needs.

It’s a terrific story of formation and growth of what I think will become one of Vancouver’s most desirable neighbourhoods.  It has a side benefit of contributing significantly to UBC’s endowment which supports new professors, new students research and myriad other programs.
