Overview

One of North Americas largest urban developments, False Creek North is situated on the sunny, southeastern edge of the downtown peninsula. This dynamic, growing community runs from Main St. westwards to the Burrard Bridge with Pacific Blvd bordering to the north. Named by George Henry Richards during his Hydrographic survey if 1856, prior to 1986, this waterfront land was used for heavy industry, sawmills and the supporting railway. After the Worlds Fair in 1986, the area experienced a rapid transformation. Today, 3 distinct communities have emerged; Granville Slopes (1000 Beach area), Concord Pacific’s; Beach Crescent/Marinaside and City Gate.

Development has been achieved with a focus on livability through the incorporation of; 42 acres of public park space, elementary schools, community centers, daycares and a continuous 35 ft. wide waterfront walkway for pedestrians.

This is a vibrant, mixed-use community focusing on bringing people and their place of work closer together. It has become an international model of inner city revitalization. The appeal is to both the young and young at heart with upscale homes ranging in size and price. False Creek North offers a more laid back, community feel while being only a few blocks away from the action of surrounding neighborhoods.
