This report looks at Wesbrook Place, a new development at the University of British Columbia, nine years after construction began and six years after the first residents moved in relative to its goals to establish a vibrant, compact, complete and walkable community which limits impacts on local streams and the adjacent forest. By August, 2014, the neighbourhood was 25% built. It performs very well relative to measures of population diversity, land use mix, density, walkability, access to parks and services and to good transit services. Several important indicators could not evaluated due to a lack of data, such as building energy performance; transportation mode share by residents; stormwater runoff quantity and quality, residents’ satisfaction with quality of life.
