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.

Vancouver Council to vote on Laneway Housing

Vancouver city council will likely approve laneway housing today, which, as Frances Bula notes on her blog "will give 65,000 homeowners in the city’s RS1 and RS5 (single-family) zones the right to build a 750-square-foot house at the back of their lots".

Not all lots can build to the maximum size, however -- the ruling will require that there remain 16 feet of space between the main house and the laneway house. The lot also has to be 33 feet wide at this point.
