Workshop theme

The image of the False Creek Flats continues to be defined by a combination of the areas unique geography, industrial development, and the presence and barrier of rail.

For many people in Vancouver, the Flats represent a 450-acre hole in their mental map, largely devoid of the amenities and public places available in other areas of our city. Yet despite this, a number of unique places, interesting spaces, historic materials and buildings contain tremendous potential to develop the Flats into a celebrated component of the public life of our city.

This plan could leverage these unique features, to establish the places and spaces required to support a thriving economic district.

  • How do we define and deliver unique public places and spaces that build off these distinctive features and connect to the vast network of parks and public spaces that surround the False Creek Flats?
  • What places or amenities are needed in order for the area to achieve its economic potential?
