Green House Keeping?


Here is a statement from the City through Senior Heritage Planner Marco D’Agostini about the Green House at 1885 Venables – the former rectory for Grandview Methodist Church referred to in previous posts.

“The Vancouver East Cultural Centre with the support of the city is looking at possible retention of the Green House for the purposes of providing rehearsal and non-profit space; however, there is a question of the physical state of the building and whether or not it can be retrofitted for those purposes at a reasonable cost. There will be a variety of activities occurring in the next few weeks to assess the building state and possible renovation and, based on the outcomes of those investigations, the VECC will make a decision on moving forward. In the interim the building is being secured and continues to be overseen by the VECC with City assistance.”
