Vancouver Council Endorses NE False Creek Development Plan

The High-Density vision (High-level review) of development for NE False Creek has been endorsed by city council - apparently to bring the highest density in the downtown area.

This doesn't mean that the buildings will go up next week; this is but the first stage in the development plan of the site - now, developers will begin to submit their plans for building out the area.

This is particularly interesting due not only to the fact this is one of the remaining small stretches of 'waterfront' in the city, but also due to the different groups and varying pressures on the area: Concord Pacific, BCPavCo (which runs BC Place), both stadiums, discussions surrounding the lack of amenities in the area, and the future of the Georgia/Dunsmuir Viaducts.

I'll expand the story as I have a closer look.
