The Plaza of Nations is synonymous with the history and memories of Expo 86. However, the current site uses are no longer viable, overall it is currently underutilized and dysfunctional.

The proposed development is primarily residential, commercial, community facilies, marine use and public open space. The site density is approximately 3.9 FSR. The public support the higher density in recognition of the high level of community amenities as well as the sustainability features and meeting the LEED Gold standard.

The most daring feature of the proposal is the tall Skybridge building (this will be the second one if built, the first one is known as “Central” and is located on Main, near 1st). It’s great that the buildings do offer some sort of break from the norm for the area. The structure does cover up BC Place Stadium and it’s fancy new roof, which is really unfortunate. Being so close to the stadium, I can’t see these being marketed as high end units.

This project will also require the removal of the vastly underused Plaza of Nations building, Edgewater Casino and the nearby two night clubs.

From City of Vancouver Proposal Page, the following major public benefits include, among others, the following:

  • Community Centre: the heart of the neighbourhood amenity facilities is the Community Centre which includes, among other things; day care centre for 69 children; community rooms; publically accessible ice hockey/skating rink that will be used by the community and as a training facility for the Canucks; and a sports science centre. In addition, all operating costs will be absorbed and indemnified by the applicant
  • False Creek Seaside Walkway and Bike Route: completion of the north side False Creek seaside walkway and bike route between Coopers Park Neigh- bourhood and the foot of the Georgia Street axis will be achieved. This adds 363m (1,190 ft) of finished seaside walkway and bike route to False Creek.
  • Civic Plaza: a major public outdoor event space is proposed on the water- front at the southerly apex of the site. This flexible space of approximately 4,500m (48,500 sf) will accommodate a wide range of audiences ranging from small gatherings up to 4,000 people. The event calendar will primarily be focused between spring and fall. It has the potential of accommodating a variety of neighbourly activities such as music, art shows, theatre presen- tations, and neighbourhood gatherings. The Civic Plaza replaces the original event space in the Plaza of Nations. This location gives uninterrupted south- erly views to the water and maximizes sun access.
