Heritage Vancouver Top 10 Tour + Talk: False Creek South: Past, Present and Future
September 17, 2016 - 10:00am - 12:00pm
Meet at the north end of Spyglass Place at the ferry landing under the south end of the Cambie Street Bridge
Starts at Spyglass Place and goes to outside Granville Island

Reflecting the 1970s values of a livable city and quality of life, the area was developed with a mix of one-third non-market rental housing, co-ops and condos in a Garden City landscape setting on leased, City-owned lands.

During Placemaking Week, join us in launching a new series of tours on the Top 10. The tour of False Creek South will explore the community vision, planning, urban design, development and current issues shaping the future of this historic area.

Led by Helen Cain, this tour will unfold as a discussion between guest speakers Dr. Thomas Hutton and Nathan Edelson and will explore the 1970s political vision for False Creek South to create a socially diverse and inclusive neighbourhood on the former industrial lands, the City of Vancouver master plan and its implementation, and perspectives on the current issues of the renewal of leases, housing mix, increased density and infill design.
