VANCOUVER FALSE CREEK

NEIGHBOURHOOD

GUIDE

<<< CLICK on pics for MLS listing

False Creek South is a pioneering waterfront community designed as a walkable inner-city neighbourhood. The video below provides a sense of how the planning helped to make this a very neighbourly and cozy waterfront village.

The City of Vancouver owns 80% of the property in this neighbourhood and through its Property Endowment Fund leases the land to tenants. The remainder of the land is owned other levels of government, the Squamish First Nation, or private owners. This is a very interesting experiment of ownership and there are many types of leases here. You should visit our Blog on Leaseholds to discover the differences if you are considering living in this waterfront oasis community.

False Creek is about as photogenic as Vancouver gets! It is a success story in City planning. The housing in the area is a mix of retail, commercial, and housing. This area is perfect for professionals and business owners who want to be close to downtown and still have the benefits of waterfront! Transit is available in many forms including skytrain, bus, and water taxi. False creek is also host to water events like Dragon Boat, kayaking, boating, canoeing, and fireworks displays.
