CIVITAS was the lead Master Planner for this landmark Vancouver waterfront neighbourhood in the heart of the city. The project is located on former industrial lands and has become a highly marketable residential address that also allowed the city to re-connect with its waterfront at the popular Harbour Green Park and Coal Harbour Marina.
The high density built form and residential streetscapes were an urban design precedent for the City of Vancouver, creating ground-oriented townhouse units at the base of elegant towers providing for a unique and popular form of housing, and also safe, vibrant streets. Local amenities include a community centre, parks, and local grocery, pub, and waterfront restaurant.
