UniverCity was in the spotlight again this month, winning yet another environmental award—this time, the Innovations in Creating a More Livable and Sustainable Region award from the Urban Development Institute. The development, which has won almost a dozen awards since construction got underway in 2001–02, is a complete, sustainable urban community comprised of walkable neighbourhoods on approximately 160 acres of university land adjacent to the Burnaby campus. It is already home to 2,000 people, with more neighbourhoods planned to eventually accommodate a thriving community of about 4,500 homes and 10,000 people.
