The Northeast False Creek Plan (NEFC Plan) sets the long-term vision for the last remaining piece of large undeveloped land in the downtown along False Creek.
The final plan for Northeast False Creek proposes:
- A new vibrant waterfront destination with amenities including childcare, social housing, artist space, plazas, an ice rink, and a cultural centre
- Opportunities for community and social development, including 1,800 units of social housing
- 32 acres of new and renewed parks and open space
- Replacement of the viaducts with an at-grade street network that will connect Northeast False Creek to the downtown core

Following a Public Hearing on July 13, Council approved amendments to the False Creek North Official Development Plan PDF file (6.4 MB) and various related CD-1 by-laws and design guidelines to help deliver more than 661 units of social housing on 3 sites in the False Creek North area, 2 of which are located in the Northeast False Creek (NEFC) Plan area.
This a significant step towards realizing the vision of the NEFC Plan, which seeks to integrate a significant amount of affordable housing options in Northeast False Creek to support the development of a vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable neighbourhood.
