  • Equitable Green Interventions for False Creek South

    South False Creek put Vancouver on the map for its innovative green planning, mixed- income housing and careful design principles. The neighbourhood is undergoing a new plan—the process needs to incorporate climate emergency goals, affordable housing and equity. Our plan includes inclusionary zoning, green development levies and small-scale interventions that allow for development while mitigating the effects of green gentrification.
