CF Richmond Centre shopping centre is proposing a two-phase redevelopment of a horseshoe shaped portion of the south end of the existing south mall, "CF Richmond Centre South".

The proposed Development Plan includes the replacement of the former Sears building, nearby shops, the existing multi-storey parkade, and adjacent surface parking with a high-rise, urban neighbourhood comprising approximately 2,000 dwellings, new public streets and outdoor spaces, two levels of underground parking, and 40,900 m2 (440,000 ft2) of new retail space, the latter of which represents a net retail increase of approximately 9,290 m2 (100,000 ft2).

The Development Plan's proposed high-rise buildings and mix of commercial and residential uses are allowed under the property's existing zoning and Richmond's City Centre Area Plan (CCAP). As the site is pre-zoned, the City's ability to secure community amenities, such as affordable housing, is compromised because Council does not have the discretionary power of a rezoning application.

However, the "CF Richmond Centre South Development Plan" includes new streets, public spaces, and building features that are not identified in the CCAP. As a result, the developer was required to make an application to amend the CCAP. Through the CCAP amendment review process, City staff are working with the developer to address community objectives and secure amenities, including ones not generally achievable through the development application processes applicable to pre-zoned sites.

The developer will host a public information display and two open house events at the CF Richmond Centre shopping centre. Residents and interested parties are invited to visit the upcoming public display, open houses, and LetsTalkRichmond.ca to learn about the proposed development and provide feedback.

Public Display: Information will be on display at CF Richmond Centre, at the No. 3 Road entrance to the Galleria, from Tuesday, May 22 to Sunday June 3, 2018.

Open Houses: The developer and City staff will be at the Public Display to answer questions on Sunday, May 27, from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m., and Thursday, May 31, from 5:00 - 8:00 pm.

LetsTalkRichmond.ca: A feedback form and background information will be available on LetsTalkRichmond.ca from Tuesday, May 22 to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 3, 2018.

Paper copies of the feedback form will be available at both Open House events.

Be sure the complete the feedback form by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 3, 2018.

All public feedback received from the Open Houses and LetsTalkRichmond.ca will be compiled and presented for consideration by City Council.

Thank you for your participation. Your input is important to us.
