Say goodbye to Kitsilano legends Moderne Burger and Benny’s Cafe.
At least in their current locations.
According to the Straight, the redevelopment of 2500 West Broadway means that a number of well-known businesses will either have to relocate or close down.
City of Vancouver’s city manager Jag Sandhu told the Georgia Straight that a development permit application for the site has been approved for a four-storey mixed commercial and residential building, with 21 dwelling units and three ground-level retail stores.
The impending project will affect four businesses: Aria Florist and Wedding Design, Benny’s Café , Moderne Burger, and Kinome Japanese Kitchen.
Originally known as Benny’s Bagels, Benny’s Café opened in the late 1980s and retro-style diner Moderne Burger has been operation for 17 years.
