The City of Vancouver has announced the launch of Northeast False Creek Website!
This website will be a major communication tool throughout the planning process.
Northeast False Creek (NEFC) is a local and regional hub of sports, culture, and events venues, including BC Place Stadium, Rogers Arena, and the Plaza of Nations.
NEFC remains one of the largest undeveloped areas in the downtown peninsula.
The City aims to create an active and diverse waterfront neighbourhood by replacing the viaducts with a new ground-level road network.
Removing the viaducts and realigning the road network will maintain the essential movement of goods and services to and from Downtown, and allow for:
- Improved connections between Vancouver’s historic neighbourhoods and False Creek
- More park space on the False Creek waterfront
- Development of the vacant City-owned blocks on either side of Main Street (now interrupted by the viaducts)
- New housing opportunities, including affordable housing
