How does the port’s project relate to the larger waterfront development taking place in Vancouver?
Next door to Terminal 1 is a 35-acre development under construction by Columbia Waterfront LLC. The port has been working with both organizations for a decade to lay the groundwork – parcels, roads, rail lines and utilities – to help reconnect our community to the waterfront. The city’s project will soon be home to jobs, restaurants, shops, housing, a hotel, and a 7-acre public park. The port is working closely with the city and Columbia Waterfront LLC so each project fits seamlessly together and creates a waterfront experience unique to our community. The result will be a newly revitalized, vibrant section of the waterfront stretching along the newly constructed Columbia Way from Columbia Street to Esther Street.
