Alberni Street

Named for Lieutenant Colonel Pedro de Alberni, the commander of the troops on Francisco Eliza’s expedition aboard the Concepcion to Nootka Sound in 1790, Alberni runs from Burrard to Lagoon Drive one block north of, and parallel to, Robson. Colonel de Alberni was a noted gardener and cultivated the first garden on Vancouver Island, and introduced the first cows to island. The Alberni Canal and Port Alberni were named after him, which gave L.A. Hamilton, the CPR Land Commissioner who surveyed much of Vancouver, the inspiration for the West End when, in 1885, he chose street names for much of the West End from a map of the coast.

NAME: Alberni Pedestrian Mall

DESCRIPTION:  In March of 2019, the city put out a call for proposals for a redesign of the 2 blocks of Alberni Street between Burrard and Bute.  The proposals are to be considered until late August. Final design should be ready by Autumn, they’re hoping. Wider sidewalks! Public art!  Decorative specialty lighting! And all in a very very pricy retail district.
