Coal Harbour Master Plan
The community amenities were envisioned by the community as part of the Coal Harbour Master Plan. Construction of phase 1 of the plan was completed in 2000, with the construction of Coal Harbour Community Centre and the opening of Coal Harbour Park.
When finished, the new building will complete phase 2 of the Coal Harbour Master Plan and is designed for integration with the existing facilities from phase 1.
We have been working alongside the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation and the Vancouver School Board to provide key community amenities to the Coal Harbour neighbourhood, including:
- An elementary school
- A childcare centre
- Affordable housing
New adaptable and multifunctional spaces are needed to accommodate the needs of the growing population in the area. With the community amenities located in proximity to each other, this project aims to create many benefits for the community.
