Heritage Vancouver Top 10 Tour + Talk: False Creek South: Past, Present and Future

Organization: 
Heritage Vancouver Society
Date of Event: 
Saturday, October 15, 2016 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
October 15- 10:00am - 12:00pm

Reflecting the 1970s values of a livable city and quality of life, the area was developed with a mix of one-third non-market rental housing, co-ops and condos in a Garden City landscape setting on leased, City-owned lands.
Join us for our second installment of our new series of tours. This tour of False Creek South will explore the community vision, planning, urban design, development and current issues shaping the future of this historic area.
Led by Helen Cain, this tour will unfold as a discussion between guest speakers Dr. Thomas Hutton and Nathan Edelson and will explore the 1970s political vision for False Creek South to create a socially diverse and inclusive neighbourhood on the former industrial lands, the City of Vancouver master plan and its implementation, and perspectives on the current issues of the renewal of leases, housing mix, increased density and infill design.
