The really bodes well for RRT to at least central Broadway. All we need now is Granville to show Vancouver's commitment to rapid transit.
With the builders and City planners allowing for future Broadway subway connections to these new buildings, it seems everyone involved is expecting the future Broadway/UBC line will be underground and under Broadway.
This is evident to me because the new Crossroads complex at Broadway / Cambie is on the north side of Broadway, so it would have some difficulty to connect to a new Broadway/UBC line station under Cambie @ 10th Ave.
The three other sites are south of Broadway (between Broadway and 10th Ave), so if the Broadway/UBC line is built under Broadway or under 10th Ave. they could still connect to a new subway station on either side of their properties.
Dare I make a prediction?
After decades of planning and studies culminating in the UBC Line Rapid Transit Study, the Preferred Alternative will be Skytrain under Broadway to UBC. If money and political will is lacking, it will only be built as far west as Arbutus with a future extension to UBC to be done later.
