The City of Vancouver has announced a public consultation on the future of False Creek South, 80 acres of city-owned land between the Cambie and Burrard Street bridges.

The neighbourhood is home to approximately 1,800 units of housing on leasehold lands, with many of the leases expiring within the next 15-25 years.

False Creek South was a visionary housing development when it was built in the 1970s — an inclusive and affordable waterfront neighbourhood built on reclaimed industrial land, with a wide variety of housing types.

The survey is available until February 28, 2021.
