A development proposal to rezone the site from BCPED (BC Place/Expo District) to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District for Northeast False Creek Rezoning Plan: Sub-Area 10C at 777 Pacific Boulevard has been approved. The proposal is to rezone and develop the site into a mixed-use development based on the Northeast False Creek Plan. The Northeast False Creek Rezoning Plan: Sub-Area 10C is a 40-storey tower with 389 units that offer 236 Studios, 11 One Bedroom+Den units, 90 Two Bedroom units, 13 Two Bedroom+Den units, 35 Three Bedroom units and 4 Penthouse units. A couple of different Rezoning Application projects that fall under the Northeast False Creek Rezoning Plan are 800 Quebec Street & 801 Main Street and 898 Main Street Sub-Area 6D & Northeast False Creek Rezoning Plan: Sub-Area 6B Plaza of Nations at 750–772 Pacific Boulevard.
When the Official Development Plan (ODP) for False Creek North (including Northeast False Creek) was first created, the stadium had not been renovated to include the spires and lights that are now seen as an iconic element in the Vancouver skyline. At the time, the simple inflated roof and prominent concrete ring of the structure were not valued visually, and the ODP specifically sought to wrap the stadium with other buildings. This approach led to the design and form of the casino, hotel and other buildings to the south and west of the stadium structure.
Since the renovation of the stadium roof and introduction of the light ring, the stadium has become an important and valued icon of the Vancouver skyline. As such, one of the key urban design principles for Northeast False Creek that has emerged through this process is to shape, locate and design future development to retain views to the stadium where possible. Another important influence in the design of buildings close to the stadium is the appropriate recognition of Georgia Street as the ceremonial street of the city connecting water to water, and the activation of this street and public space both during major events and at other non-programmed times.
The significance of the new intersection of Georgia Street and Pacific Boulevard warrants consideration of a strategic intervention to the Council-approved View Cone 9.1 (Cambie Street to North Shore Mountains) which limits buildings in this area to approximately 300 ft. in height. The new intersection of Georgia Street and Pacific Boulevard will mark the meeting of city and water, and the urban connection of Vancouver’s prime ceremonial street with Pacific Boulevard, False Creek, and neighbourhoods to the east. It will be a focal point of the regionally significant Events and Entertainment district of Northeast False Creek at the juncture of the two stadiums. Allowing the buildings on sites immediately adjacent to this intersection to exceed the view cone to a height of approximately 425 ft. to mark the significance of this place, and act as counterpoint in the skyline to Vancouver’s current two tallest towers at 1100 block Georgia Street downtown. This height would punctuate the skyline without exceeding the line of the mountains as viewed from the Cambie Street viewpoint origin.
