Northeast False Creek Design

VIA is the Lead Urban Designer for the team and is providing guidance related to streetscape design, multi-modal interface an recommendations for vehicle, truck and pedestrian access. Urban Design aspects such as scale, accessibility, integration with existing and future land uses, pedestrian and bicycle access are key to the success of this major infrastructure project. Specifically, this project will transform the area directly adjacent to the stadiums and will influence sensitive private lands while reconnecting the Downtown Eastside neighbourhoods with False Creek and the rest of Downtown.

This proposed concept provides an opportunity to bring a human scale to the
area and provide a pedestrian-oriented amenity that can include urban design features that enhance user experience including:

  • Sustainable landscape and storm-water management treatments
  • Pedestrian lighting
  • Clarity of path and wayfinding
  • Opportunities for public art
  • Seating areas
