Daily Poll: What do you think of Vancouver’s False Creek plan?

Vancouver city council passed its ambitious Northeast False Creek revitalization plan on Tuesday.

The 20-year plan includes $1.7 billion in benefits for the city, which it hopes to recoup most or even all of the cost from development levies and contributions from the federal and provincial governments.

As Postmedia’s John Mackie reported Tuesday, $600 million will go to affordable housing, and $360 million to “critical infrastructure” such as tearing down the Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts and replacing them with a new street network.

The new waterfront neighbourhood would welcome 10,000 to 12,000 new residents, who will mostly be living in 20 to 25 high-rise towers that will stretch from the Plaza of Nations on the west to Carrall Street on the east.

Some Chinatown leaders feel they’ve been left out of the city’s consultations, while plan opponents argue the new towers will spoil Vancouver’s mountain views.
