Living in False Creek North

There’s no doubt that False Creek is one of the most admired locations for planned residential communities in North America – from the South Shore project designed in the 1970s, to the South East ‘Olympic Village’ now under construction.  But the largest of them all can be found on the North Shore – Concord Pacific Place – as well as some of the adjacent neighbourhoods.

But what do the people who live there think?  It’s very rare that they’re even asked, once the development is approved, built and sold out.  Well, not in this case.  Thanks to the work done by the School of Community and Regional Planning at UBC, under the guidance of past planner Larry Beasley and social planner Wendy Sarkissian, we now have the results of a post-occupancy study of False Creek North.
