The Reurbanist team undertook a business sustainability strategy with G.P. Rollo & Associates in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of South Delta’s (Ladner and Tsawwassen) business communities in the advent of the TFN Mall Development, two planned retail developments that collectively have over 1.8 million square feet of floor area.

Based on a comprehensive analysis of the existing and predicted future conditions of South Delta the consultant team developed a number of actionable recommendations for community groups, business owners, property owners, and municipal / government authorities.
