False Creek Flats
The False Creek Flats is a major job centre in Vancouver with a critical role in our local and regional economy’s future.
About 8,000 people work at over 600 diverse businesses in the Flats, an area of over 450 acres that's less than one kilometer to downtown and the port.
Many of our city’s residential neighbourhoods, as well as downtown retail and service industry, rely on many of these businesses for waste management, digital media, clean technology, transportation, food services, and more.
We’re creating a plan with the Vancouver Economic Commission to help the Flats flourish as a more productive, sustainable, and connected area of our city.
The Eastern Core Strategy will transform the Eastern Core - False Creek Flats - into a sustainable green enterprise zone by reconnecting the area to surrounding communities.
The Great Northern Way structure planning project aims to transform the area into a thriving cultural and artistic district.
