Planning projects

News on major planning projects across Metro Vancouver, such as local area plans. In the City of Vancouver, a number of major planning processes are underway, including the Northeast False Creek plan, which will see the removal of the Dunsmuir and Georgia viaducts, and a new neighbourhood developed with thousands of homes, retail and park space. The False Creek Flats area will also transform dramatically in the coming years. St. Paul's Hospital will relocate from Burrard Street to a new location off Station Street, and a new arterial road will connect Clark Drive to Pacific Boulevard. Oakridge Centre will undergo a dramatic transformation from a traditional shopping centre to a mixed-use, high-density neighbourhood with expanded retail space, thousands of new homes and civic amenities. In downtown Vancouver, the impact of the West End Plan is already clear, with new tower proposals on Davie and Robson streets. Several high-end luxury towers are proposed for West Georgia between Denman and Cardero as well, including on the site of White Spot, and on Alberni Street.
