Website rouses opposition to proposed Northeast False Creek towers' impact on views of North Shore mountains

A proposal for a 400-foot building near B.C. Place Stadium has some worried about the loss of some of Vancouver's most exquisite views.

On Tuesday (July 24), city council is expected to vote on a rezoning application by B.C. Pavilion Corporation for a 400,000-square-foot mixed use building.

It's one of three towers proposed as part of the Northeast False Creek neighbourhood plan.

The general manager of planning, urban design, and sustainability, Gil Kelley, has recommended that council grant approval in principle.

But opponents say that it will have a terrible impact on the appearance of the North Shore mountains from the view cone at Cambie Street and West 10th Avenue.

They've created a website, SaveOurSkyline, to generate opposition among the public.

"If city council votes to let PavCo's tower through, this will set precedence for other real estate developers to pressure the City to allow them to penetrate the view cones too," the website states. "This will be the end of Vancouver's unique mountain skyline as we know it. We cannot let city council and crown corporation Pavco privatize our free public views."
