Readers of this blog have been following the debates about the new community to be created at Northeast False Creek for a while. Most MSM haven’t been paying much attention to it yet, likely because it’s just drawings on paper so far.
But it’s going to get more public attention in the future, I guarantee. This is an area as big as Coal Harbour, a future home to possibly 7,000 people, and right in the middle of the city. What happens here — or doesn’t — will have impacts beyond the immediate neighbourhood.
Here’s my first crack at it in the Globe — 700 words is nowhere near enough to cover all the issues (more like stuffing an octopus into a thimble, I like to say), but it hits the highlights. As I’ve said in previous posts, you can read the full reports on the city’s website (they have a whole section dedicated to NEFC).
