False Creek North
False Creek North (FCN) lies along the northern shore of False Creek, from the Burrard Street Bridge to Main Street on Vancouver’s Downtown peninsula. For this description, it includes the lands forming the eastern portion of False Creek.
A little history....before 1986, False Creek, like most of Vancouver’s waterfront, was a focus of heavy industry and the supporting railways. Sawmills and factories surrounded this water basin. In a startling transformation, virtually all the industry moved out to be temporarily replaced by the Expo 86 World’s Fair. After the World’s Fair closed, the lands were sold to private developers and rezoned. Redevelopment has been proceeding ever since. Much of the planned development around False Creek is built out, including most of the former Expo lands, now Concord Pacific Place, and the Citygate development to the east.
The transformation of some 80 hectares (204 acres) of inner-city area has taken place over a twenty year period and has changed Vancouver’s downtown skyline as well as its waterfront public realm. It has brought a long-lost body of water back into public use.
FCN is one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in North America, and has created a diversity of new urban experiences. Three distinct False Creek communities are discussed, beginning with Granville Slopes to the west, Concord Pacific Place at the center, and Citygate to the east. As well, a brief preview of Southeast False Creek, now under planning review, is provided.
