Supports new Dragon Boat Facility, secures new opportunity for affordable housing, moves forward with new park planning
A development featuring a total of 620 new residential units was approved by City Council at last night’s Public Hearing, with two new towers to be constructed just west of the Cambie Bridge in North False Creek.
A community amenity contribution of $4.2 million secured from the project will support the building of a new Dragon Boat facility at Creekside Community Centre, fulfilling a longstanding major demand for the popular sport on False Creek. The developer also transferred title to 58 West Hastings (across from Saveonmeats) to the City of Vancouver for use as a future affordable housing site.
Council also directed staff to report back with a timeline on the delivery of a significant new park for Northeast False Creek, in conjunction with the viaducts report anticipated for next year.
