SE False Creek Land East of Olympic Village to be Re-Zoned
Concert Properties has applied to re-zone the lots in Southeast False Creek directly to the East of the Olympic Village with the intention of creating a new 5 building development, plus a park with walking and cycling paths, and an internal street network (although that appears to be pretty minimal). The City has called a Public Hearing on the matter. It is taking place next Tuesday June 3, 2014 at City Hall.
According the City's website on the hearing:
The City of Vancouver has received an application to rezone areas 3A and 3B in the Southeast False Creek (SEFC) Official Development Plan (ODP) from M-2 to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District to permit a neighbourhood development comprised of:
- a waterfront park, greenway/bikeway paths, an internal street network;
- five residential buildings consisting of one 18-storey building, two 15-storey buildings, one 14-storey building, and one 12-storey building;
- with a total floor area of 58,020 m² (624,522 sq. ft.) including 48,272 m² (519,595 sq. ft.) of market residential in four buildings and 9,748 m² (104,927 sq. ft.) of non-market affordable rental floor area
It is too late to register in advance to speak at this meeting (sorry), but you can register in person at the door between 5:30 and 6 pm on the day of the Public Hearing. I am sure there will be a lively discussion of the plans for the large site between Science World and West 1st Ave and between Quebec St and Ontario St.
