We lease land to about 60% of residential properties in the False Creek South neighbourhood.
The leases began when the neighbourhood was built in the 1970s and 80s, and most will expire in 20 to 40 years (between 2036 and 2046).
We now have an important opportunity to work with False Creek South residents and Vancouverites to consider the future of the area and how it can support our growing city.
Check back for many upcoming opportunities to share your ideas to help reshape this area to meet our city's challenges and dreams.

An additional 1,354 homes in False Creek South are on land owned by private owners or other levels of government.
