Kingsway’s skyline and streetscape is currently transforming with the emergence of several new mixed-use residential and retail projects and it remains the focus of various initiatives by the city planning staff. The City of Vancouver has plans for creating four distinct neighbourhood centres within the area - the Mt. Pleasant “Uptown” Precinct, Knight & Kingsway Neighbourhood Centre, Norquay Village Neighbourhood Centre and Kingsway/Joyce Neighbourhood Centre. The City’s desire is to create a more livable and walkable community along the thoroughfare.
