Steve Lebitschnig, owner of Fascinating Rhythm on Commercial Street, said independent business owners downtown can provide a better level of service. KARL YU The News BULLeTiN

about downtown? By Karl yu

W

hile some long-time Nanaimoites say it wasn’t always the case, downtown Nanaimo is a vibrant area, full of life. It is a great place, they say. Greg Badger, owner of Funk your Fashion on Commercial Street, has owned his business for five years and been in Nanaimo for eight – some people have told him that downtown used to be rundown and a bit scary. “All I know Nanaimo downtown to be is a vibrant area with amazing artists, busking on the streets, as well as shops as my own and lots of great

restaurants and coffee shops and stuff like that. It is a phenomenal downtown, just waiting to explode,” says Badger. “It’s doing well but it has the potential for it and the upside is incredible.” Jane Coupland, owner of Very Vintage Upcycled Chic on Commercial Street, likes being situated in downtown Nanaimo as it allows a blend of different people, such as tourists and people at conferences. She likes being part of the downtown community as well. “It is so great because geographically and esthetically, it’s beautiful and with the ocean and the walkway and we have a lot of great

heritage buildings – to me it’s the soul and the heart of the city,” Coupland said. Kathy Boland, a long-time Nanaimoite, moved from Ontario two decades ago and she said people didn’t really feel comfortable coming downtown back then but things have changed. “It’s really got a small city, active feel in

the downtown core,” Boland said. “There are little shops, there are small, interesting retail that you can meander through and get things that are unusual. More and more people are starting to come downtown and enjoy it.” According to Steve Lebitschnig, owner of downtown music and movie store Fascinating Rhythm, having

independent business owners downtown is what makes it so great. “We’ve got a nice mix of independent businesses, especially unique stores. “A lot of owner/ operators, people that can make decisions can provide maybe a better level of service and satisfaction than you sometimes get at a chain store,” Leb-

itschnig said. Nanaimo African Heritage Society President Shalema Gantt has her organization located downtown and the centrality is what makes it great. “We’re such a great port city. Everything is so convenient. From downtown, you’re surrounded by parks, the ocean,” Gantt says. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Willow Friday’s downtown mainstay House of Indigo expands to second location to offer artistic haven By ChriS BuSh

illow Friday is opening her new store in one of Nanaimo’s oldest buildings. House of Indigo is on the move again. Well, part of it is. With business heating up, Friday has taken out a lease in the bottom level of the old Nanaimo fire house wedged between Nicol Street and Victoria Road. The brick building, constructed in 1893, offers about 1,600 square feet of retail space on its bottom floor, plus a big outdoor patio that Friday is eager to start experimenting with.

Friday opened House of Indigo as a consignment clothing store on Fitzwilliam Street in 2002. Being an artist who designs and makes her own jewellery, she added in a selection of beads. The clothing and beads sold like crazy, lines expanded and in 2008 Friday moved House of Indigo to a bigger space on Church Street. Arts supplies were added in 2010 through Blue Sky Art Supply, which operated as a separate business within House of Indigo. When the owner of Blue Sky had to move to Calgary, Friday bought the business.

With Barton and leier, artzi Stuff and House of Indigo I think it’s going to be a really cool corner of art, local artists, funky stuff.

Tuesday, Tuesday, September September 24, 24, 2013 2013

“She had already got the ball rolling, which was a huge, huge help because people were already thinking to come downtown. For a year they were starting to think art supplies down there,” Friday said. With plenty of artists, but few arts supply outlets in Nanaimo, art supply sales became a big part of House of Indigo and the section is crowding out the store. “It’s taken off and now I need more space because I’ve got displays that are sitting on counters and it’s only 1,150 square feet over there,” Friday said. “I don’t want to stop doing the clothing. I don’t want to stop doing the beads. I want to expand on the art supplies, so I just need more space.” Friday said she had concerns about trying to operate two stores, but has someone in place to run House of Indigo. There’s a certain irony about moving a business that has taken off like wildfire into an old fire house. The fire house’s bottom floor, once a coffee house, has sat dormant for more than 10 years. Friday has been

cleaning up the space for several months to get it ready for opening in early January. “It’s a beautiful location and it gets lots of street traffic,” Friday said. “There’s lots of parking over here, too.” The lower floor’s northeast facing windows allow plenty of light, something every studio needs, and it’s located within an easy walk for customers coming over from Gabriola Island. The art supplies and beads will move into the fire house, which has enough floor space for retail sales and a teaching and workshop area artists can rent to hold classes. There will also be a play area, so to speak, where people want to try painting can get a canvas, buy a dollop of paint and try their hand at it and see if they like painting before committing a lot of money to supplies. The extra room also means Friday will finally have an office – she calls it her Miser’s Room – where she can tally up business each day. Friday will keep House of Indigo’s

Nanaimo News News Bulletin Bulletin 55

Church Street store open as well and plans to expand the clothing section and add gift items, such as soaps and pottery. “I’m really excited about that area because Artzi Stuff is moving in next door. With Barton and Leier, Artzi Stuff and House of Indigo I think it’s going to be a really cool corner of art, local artists, funky stuff,” Friday said. Friday is still deciding what to name her new store. She seems to be settling on Firehouse of Indigo, but other possibilities keep tumbling around in her mind. “I was also toying with Iron Oxide Arts Supplies, which I really like,” she said. “It’s rust and I love rust and if the Firehouse wasn’t so perfect with this – it’s unbelievable how much that makes sense – I’d be totally going for Iron Oxide.” Regardless of what Friday decides, she’ll be offering a sneak peek of the store, where nine artists will display their work during the 2013 Nanaimo Downtown and Old City Artwalk Nov. 30 to Dec. 1. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Port Place expansion nears completion Phase 2 of project sees new shops anchor revamped mall

By ChriS BuSh

T

he second phase of the extensive renovation Port Place Shopping Centre has been undergoing for the past few years should be completed by Oct. 1. Once done the shopping centre will lease out about 35,000 additional square feet of office and retail space on two floors on the north side of the property. Port Place Shopping Centre is at the centre of downtown Nanaimo revitalization. The first phase of the mall’s renovations changed sight lines and traffic flow downtown and the newest addition will complete the centre’s concept of a blend of pedestrian-friendly exterior and interior shopping with public open areas. Thrifty Foods and London Drugs are long-standing anchors in the centre, which also attracted Nex-

gen Hearing, Starbucks, LifeLabs, Freshslice Pizza and other outlets with Phase 1 of the renovations. “It’s just a nice mix of everyday shopping and that’s really what we stand for – shopping for everyday life,” said Ana Kraft, leasing manager with First Capital Realty, which owns Port Place. “The second phase, which we refer to as Building D, is under construction and we are on target to deliver Oct. 1.” Kraft said several new tenants are poised to move in – Dollarama will be among the first retailers opening its doors there with a new downtown store – but until the lease agreements are signed she can’t disclose what companies are planning to set up shop there. “We’re working on a lease right now for the full second floor,” Kraft said. “I can’t disclose what it is, but it’s office use. We’re certainly in

the midst of negotiations and we’re pretty confident we can come to a deal, but I guess one never knows.” Building D has been built to LEED Gold energy efficiency standard and the roof has been built with a rooftop green space in mind. “That’s why we don’t have any venting on the roof, any restaurants have to vent outside with Ecologizers, so that we can preserve that level,” Kraft said. “It’s going to be a lovely second floor with outdoor terraces and beautiful views.” With those features, Kraft is surprised the company can’t get a restaurant to lease on the second floor. Restaurants on the Island tend to want to be on the ground floor and patrons want ground level parking and avoid underground parking. “On the Island specifically they like surface parking – they want to park right outside the door,” Kraft

said. Residential towers planned for Building D, which was designed and constructed to facilitate future expansion, are still on hold with no start date scheduled. Kraft said Nanaimo isn’t ready for more residential product in the downtown core market. But there are new businesses coming into First Capital’s retail spaces in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre on Commercial Street. “We’re working on developing downtown,” Kraft said. “We’re hoping that will become a nice boutique fashion district. We’ve got a children’s apparel and fine toys (store) coming soon and then we’re working on some other tenancies that compliment (Serious Coffee) and that store as well. We’ve got Nanaimo on our radar, though, I can tell you that that’s my mission.” photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Third time’s the charm for new downtown hotel By Tamara Cunninghamn

N

anaimo officials are hoping the third time is the charm for a new conference centre

hotel. For nearly a decade, the weedchoked lot on Gordon Street has stood empty – a stark reminder to city officials of unreached potential. The 0.17-hectare lot has been reserved for a conference centre hotel. City officials say quality hotel rooms are key to the Vancouver Island Conference Centre reaching its full potential and relying less on taxpayer subsidies. The centre is unable to book large conferences because there are reportedly not enough quality hotel rooms within walking distance of conferences. But efforts to turn the blank canvas into a top-notch hotel have failed by companies Triarc and Millennium Developments. City officials are now counting on the latest new sale agreement to bring dreams of the long-awaited development to reality. SSS Manhao – the B.C. affiliate of a major Chinese tourism company – is in the midst of purchasing the site for a 20-storey hotel. The 240-room tower would have a swimming pool, shops, restaurants and connecting tunnels to Piper Park and Nanaimo’s conference centre. The building, pegged at $50 million, is anticipated to provide rooms for delegates and attract close to 70,000 Chinese visitors to the Harbour City each year. Tourism operators and Nanaimo’s mayor say the deal is a good one, with operators creating demand that could spill out into other hotels. Businesses are also expected to benefit from the new visitors and have already started considering new products and workshops in Mandarin. “Things may change, but I am optimistic we have a winner this time and I am hopeful to see it materialize and finish on budget and on time,” said Mayor John Ruttan. “It’s like thinking of a glass as half full or half empty – I am not aware

of anything that would stop it from being built and staff continue to have regular and very encouraging discussions with the builder.” The City of Nanaimo has wrestled with the missing component of the Port of Nanaimo centre for the last five years after Millennium’s failed attempt. Ruttan said the conference centre has struggled to attract large conferences because of the short supply of quality hotel rooms downtown but there has always been the potential to reduce taxpayers’ million-dollar subsidy if it could attract more revenue from big events. The SSS Manhao is considered to be the most innovative pitch to solve the city’s hotel woes. Sasha Angus, CEO of Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation, helped make the deal and said the tourism operator is bringing much of its own clientele, while promoting Nanaimo as a tourism destination in China. Hoteliers had been concerned about a new competitor in an already saturated market, but “this is a different scenario,” he said. It will be a “tremendous asset for the community as well as the conference centre but [the operator] also brings fairly strong demand with them given their core business as a tourism operator,” he said. news@nanaimobulletin.com

new Chinatown Nanaimo businessman trying to gather investors to recreate historic spot By Tamara Cunningham

N

anaimo businessman Basil Chau is buying up properties along Terminal Avenue, with a vision to build a new Chinatown. The owner of Man Lee Oriental Foods has been trying to gather investors to buy into a series of shops planned for Terminal Avenue. Chau has already purchased the old Aztec Appliance building and a 50-car parking lot for development and is in negotiations to buy other neighbouring properties. He envisions a bustling extension of downtown Nanaimo’s popular shopping district, where crowds of people can explore a variety of ventures from an acupuncture clinic and Dim Sum restaurant to a chinese grocery and souvenir shops. “After 5 p.m., it can get so quiet

downtown ... we want to bring new stores, lots of business and more activity,” he said, from behind the till of his Terminal Park store. “[We’d] like to create a business attraction ... where local residents and tourists can spend half a day.” Chau represents a growing interest to reinvigorate the stretch of Terminal Avenue, between Comox Road and Commercial Street. The area has been dominated by the service industry but has potential to grow into a myriad of boutiques and restaurants, according to downtown business organizations. The area, once known as Terminal Trench, used to be the dumping grounds for coal mines and residential garbage and there were reportedly concerns business owners would bear the brunt of expense remediation costs. Projects like the new Chinatown could be the start of gentrification of the corridor, said Sasha Angus, CEO for the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation. But the potential still faces roadblocks, including fear from develop-

ers around contamination remediation and concerns around the street scape and walkability of the roadway. The Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association has been trying to help facilitate change by addressing contamination concerns from property owners with a remediation study. The report wrapped up in January and is confidential, but could lead to the province classifying contamination as a common historical problem, said Darren Moss, chairman of the association’s planning and design committee. The designation would lift the obligation of landowners to search for contamination beyond their property, reducing environmental study costs. Moss said its good news that there is new energy in the development community for taking on Terminal Avenue at the same time the ministry is considering the city’s application. “You start to get the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association push and market interest and it [provides] nice winds

early on and its easier to keep people moving,” Moss said. “The next step will probably involve discussion around city scape ... to try and come up with a road cross section that allows for a retail environment.” The ultimate goal is to facilitate development, said Moss. Its a mission supported by Nanaimo’s economic corporation, which sees a new Chinatown – and initiatives like it – as the start of gentrification in the corridor. The area, considered the gateway to Nanaimo, has potential to attract locals and tourists with more unique shops and restaurants, Angus said. And with 70,000 tourists potentially arriving with the construction of a conference centre hotel, a Chinatown “is an option we should play close attention to,” he said. “As development occurs there could be changes to that part of downtown to make it more walkable and create more economic activity,” Angus said. “I think there are opportunities to ... diversify the businesses down there.” news@nanaimobulletin.com

Funky Fitzwilliam: Community at heart of unique shops in Old City Quarter By Karl yu

A

unique part of Old City Quarter Nanaimo is the Fitzwilliam Gate and Heritage Mews area. The pair of arcades is around the corner from one another, connected by a path, located along Fitzwilliam Street between Selby Street and Wesley Street. Liberty Eileen Harakas, proprietor of Lobelia’s Lair Metaphysical Treasures, has been at Heritage Mews for 12 years and at Fitzwilliam Gate for three. “It’s such a wonderful community,” she says of the two. “Merchants and businesses support each other and we get lots of neighbourhood people through; lots of tourists through from all parts of the Island, across Canada, globally, so really it’s a lovely experience and very much a family-oriented area.” There isn’t any other place Blue Poppy Garden Gallery owner Kim McNutt would rather be.

“I love the little courtyard and the charm factor,” McNutt says. “I’m not a mall person so this appeals to me way more. I love all the unique, quirky little shops; it’s something different.” Like Harakas, McNutt says the sense of community is fabulous and that is a reason she chose Heritage Mews. “I love the other shop owners and we all work together; it’s definitely a community,” says the Blue Poppy Garden Gallery owner. Russ Morland runs The Electric Umbrella Tattoo and Gallery in Heritage Mews and echoes everyone’s sentiments. “So far we have been treated with respect from all the other local businesses,” Morland says. “There is a sense of community here for sure. I feel that it needs to be modernized a little and maybe needs some more attractions and a facelift in some ways but for the most part it’s awesome.” Artzi Stuff on Wesley Street tech-

nically isn’t located in Heritage Mews, but owner Tanya Streeter Wilson says the sense of community still extends to her. “Even though we’re mostly stuck in our shops all day long, we’ll still chat on the sidewalk and get together sometimes to try and plan events and everybody’s so supportive,” Streeter Wilson says. “If there’s some sort of problem, your neighbour is there to help out.” Louise Whyte is a sales associate at My Undies at the very front of Fitzwilliam Gate and is happy about the store’s locale. “We really love this location. The historic aspect of this location, the buildings and the atmosphere,” says Whyte. “It’s kind of funky and has that boutique-style atmosphere as well and there is a sense of community here where everybody tries to help each other out. We all support each other within the framework of this area.” reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

KARL YU/The News BULLeTiN

Kim McNutt, of Blue Poppy Garden Gallery, likes the charm factor of Heritage Mews. Linked to Fitzwilliam Gate by a walking path, the area features restaurants, a tattoo shop and art gallery, and a store offering metaphysical treasures.

Trove of unique stores found in China Steps By Karl yu

Situated between Victoria Crescent and Terminal Avenue, China Steps might seem a little out of the way, but to two business owners who have their shops in the area, it’s great. For Mike Cass, owner of Underground Skateboards, the fact that it’s not typical is part of what he likes. “It’s a little bit hidden away, kind of forgotten by the city a little bit, but I like the area. It’s a cool, funky area, it just needs a bit of a facelift,” he says. “It’s different, it’s not generic cookie-cutter, like a mall [where] everything looks the same. It’s kind of a unique area plus it has

a history. I don’t have any attachment to the history but the Chinese history of the area is pretty cool.” Trader Jake, who owns China Steps Emporium, has been on China Steps for little more than a year and while parking is an issue, there is good foot traffic and he likes the area. “It’s a good little hub, a good little part of the city. [The city] is starting to recognize it and do hanging baskets and things like that but there’s a lot to be improved as well,” Jake says. When asked about how China Steps is tucked away, Jake does say it is unnoticed, but that doesn’t mean

get to the end where [Catwalk Fashions] and the optical place is and – with a vacant A&B Sound building, a restaurant and a couple of sandwich boards – it doesn’t seem enticing to people to cross the

highway for it, yet a whole trove of wonderful little businesses are down here.” Jake says a lot of the businesses are independent at China Steps, everyone gets along; it’s a funky area just waiting to be discovered. “I’d like to see it grow down here and Nanaimo become aware that China Steps exists and just take a walk down here and you’ll probably be amazed what’s looming,” he says. Cass really thinks some beautification would do a lot to improve China Steps. “It’s such a cool area that a little bit would go a long way.”

While many Chinese came to B.C. with visions of gold dancing in their heads in the mid-1800s, coal mining was the reason they came to Nanaimo. China Steps had some Chinese businesses in the area, and while not officially the area’s first Chinatown, many consider it just that. “In the 1860s, ‘70s and ‘80s there was a sprinkling of Chinese shops but there was no real Chinatown per se,” said Christine Meutzner, with Nanaimo Community Archives. “We think it was sometime in the 1970s and 1980s where they decided to mark the Chinese presence somehow, so they chose that site.” A mural will soon be installed highlighting the history of the area.

nanaimo on nice list Santa set to fly in to Harbour City in late November

By greg SaKaKi

S

anta Claus will be spending a lot of time this year right in downtown Nanaimo. The Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association has Jolly ol’ Saint Nick booked solid during November and December adding Christmas cheer to the holiday shopping season. Santa will make his traditional seaplane fly-in on Nov. 30. “We have a very hilly and twisty turny downtown and Santa’s sleigh cannot land in the downtown streets, so he has to fly in,” said Robyn Tonack, marketing and events coordinator with the association. “It’s an annual thing and the kids love it. Santa gets to do a few aerial passes over the city.” The arrival in the harbour also helps to bring some traffic to the marina shops. “Sometimes in the cold, stormy

weather they get ignored, and it’s nice to bring the people down to the waterfront,” Tonack said. From there, Santa will make his way to the Vancouver Island Conference Centre for workshops Dec. 6-8, Dec. 13-15 and Dec. 20-21. Children can make their own Christmas ornaments and have hot chocolate, cookies and candy canes in a North Pole atmosphere – the conference centre even had an artifical snow machine inside the building last winter. For today’s tech-savvy kids, the association will unveil an interactive Santa’s village on its website in late November. Visitors can dress like an elf, write a letter to Santa, send a Christmas card, and more. “It’s really fun, actually,” Tonack said. “I got kind of carried away and spent about half an hour [there] without realizing it the other day.” As for Christmas decorations, some of the most elaborate and cre-

ative displays in the city every year are those at the annual Festival of Trees. A gala unveiling is scheduled this year for Nov. 21, followed by Family Days public viewing on Nov. 23-24. Many of the downtown businesses really get into the spirit of the season with their window displays, and inside the shops there will be all kinds of Christmas gifts waiting to

be wrapped, opened and enjoyed. “You can come downtown and buy stuff that other people aren’t going to be buying for you. There’s no big box stores downtown, so everything that you get downtown is sort of outside the box,” Tonack said. “There are great gift items that you’re not going to find anywhere else.”

So nice to come home to.

Productions with an edge found at Centre Stage By melISSa Fryer

T

ucked away in the heart of downtown Nanaimo is what many describe as the little theatre that could. Nanaimo Centre Stage, located at 25 Victoria Rd., is a small, intimate venue that hosts all sorts of edgy artistic displays, from musicals about demon barbers to burlesque shows. Schmooze Productions is one of the resident theatre companies that call Centre Stage home and has done so for the past four years. Schmooze has a reputation for producting high-quality and high energy local musical productions. “We needed a home and they needed people coming to the theatre,” said artistic director Dean Chadwick. In the past four years, Chadwick produced big musicals like Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Full Monty and Sweeney Todd. It’s a rather intimate venue for the size of those musicals, but gives the

audience a much different experience than people would get in a larger theatre. “People really connect with the actors on stage,” Chadwick said. But the theatre hasn’t come without challenges. The City of Nanaimo purchased the building in 2008 for $460,000 and proceeded to renovate the interior to upgrade lighting and sprinkler systems. Earlier this year, a study on the building’s envelope found that the exterior stucco needed replacing at an estimated cost of $800,000. Due to the building’s age – it’s 116 years old – city council was reluctant to invest that much money and opted instead to fix the stucco on the Nicol Street side only as it posed the greatest threat of injury to pedestrians. The construction tender closed Sept. 19 and the work is expected to cost roughly $160,000, said Ian Blackwood, manager of facilities maintenance and construction for the City of Nanaimo.

Crews will strip off the stucco and replace it with brick and hardiplank material. “What you’re going to see is the Nicol Street side and a portion of the north corner will be dealt with,” Blackwood said. “It’s going to improve the look.” It’s a challenging site to work on with just a narrow sidewalk separating the building from a main traffic artery, but Blackwood said he anticipates the work to be completed by the end of the year. As for the rest of the building, the decision to upgrade will go back before city council. “The inside has been maintained quite well,” Blackwood said. Upwards of 30 arts groups in the city use the venue and fundraising over the years has helped improve lighting, sound and amenities within the theatre. “We put in a lot of man hours making the theatre better,” Chadwick said. It pays off when Schmooze gets to stage productions like Spamalot,

which is its chosen fall production. Casting is complete and readthroughs are underway. “I’ve been a fan of Monty Python since I was a kid,” Chadwick said. “It’s the Broadway show – with our local actors.” For more information, please visit www.schmoozeproductions.com. editor@nanaimobulletin.com
