The City of Vancouver released renderings of what Vancouver will look like once the Georgia Viaduct is taken down and construction is complete.

The goal is to transform Northeast False Creek into a waterfront destination surrounded by people, nature and activities. It will include a new 11-acre park and an at-grade street network to replace the existing viaducts.

“The early draft plan for Northeast False Creek is based on some of the most extensive public consultation that the City has ever done,” says Gil Kelley, General Manager of Planning for the City of Vancouver. “We are excited by the opportunities for a really active waterfront area, design ideas for a dynamic urban village that we have worked on with landowners in the area, how the new park is shaping up, and the replacement plan for the viaducts.”

The City will be hosting an open house where the public can weigh in on the design for the park. The open house will take place on Carrall Street (between Keefer Street and Expo Boulevard) on Saturday, June 10th.

The new design includes a vital connection between Northeast False Creek and Chinatown/Gastown with the proposed Carrall Street promenade.

A pedestrian bridge going over the new Pacific Boulevard will unite the north and south sections of the park.

“The Board believes the proposed new park will transform Northeast False Creek and provide vital green space as the area continues to grow,” says Malcolm Bromley General Manager of the Vancouver Park Board.
