The future of 22nd Street Station Area looks nothing like the present. Vibrant commercial spaces, pedestrianized streets and apartment towers will define the area currently established as a SkyTrain pass-through surrounded by single detached homes. While preparing for a high density mixed use community, it is critical to understand commercial use. The 22nd Street Station Area Commercial Strategy provides research, analysis and recommendations for commercial opportunities around 22nd Street Station in New Westminster and will inform the future area Master Plan. This strategy is intended for the City of New Westminster but is relevant to future and current residents, transit riders, business owners, developers and local organizations in the area.
