Every month, the view of the downtown peninsula from across False Creek North changes yet again. Rezoning industrial lands to high-density residential use has been a key tactic in Vancouver's ongoing strategy to become a more compact, higher density, sustainable community.
Keys urban moves includes the Coal Harbour waterfront redesign with park spaces, marina activity, restaurants, cafes and shopping on the water's edge. Concord Pacific/False Creek North lands explored the new idea of high density, high rise residential living with some 42 acre of public park and an interrupted wide waterfront walk way/bike way that link the parks and street ends.
In a departure from how most of the downtown core has been developed, the Olympic Village forgoes the tower and podium model and opts for a more European feel with lower scale buildings set out on a grid of narrow streets and passage ways between the blocks. Millennium Water was planned to be sustainable as possible and has achieved LEED Platinum status, only the second neighborhood in North America to achieve this, while each of the buildings are at the Gold level.
