Opportunity + Appeal: Vancouver, Canada
MetadataShow full item record
Globally fluent cities are “metropolitan areas that are appealing, open, and opportunity-rich which serve as magnets for attracting people and firms from around the world,” according to The Brookings Institution. Vancouver, Canada is presented in 3 parts: business climate, diversity, livable neighborhoods; in 3 neighborhoods at various distances from Vancouver’s City Center. Employment opportunities and job growth are only part of what makes a city appealing as a place to live. Using the language of Jane Jacobs, derived from experience of 1960’s Greenwich Village, New York City, and described in The Death and Life of Great American Cities, I will present a case study of Vancouver and it’s opportunity and appeal around the world.
