False Creek North
The Concord Pacific land cover some 67 ha (166 acres) of Waterfront stretching along the north shore of False Creek from Granville Bridge east-ward to Quebec street. This huge area, equivalent to more than 10 city blocks in length, defines the south-eastern edge of Vancouver's Downtown peninsula, from Pender street south to Beach Avenue.
Some 17 ha (42 acre) of public park space have been created, in addition to semi private open space. A continuous, uninterrupted 10.5-m (35 feet) wide Waterfront walkway/bikeway seamlessly links the parks and street ends, and substantially completes the public waterfront loop around False Creek.
Impressive as these features are, perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Concord Pacific Place is what is has done to reinvigorate Downtown Vancouver as a compact, vibrant, mixed use community. 15,000 residents live here, combined with many more thousand moving to the Downtown peninsula, is responsible for Vancouver's becoming a North American model for inner-city revitalization. The city "Living First" Philosophy is working: more Vancouverites living in Condos are walking, cycling or using public transit.
