Waterfront Park - The Big Picture
Vancouver’s historic waterfront will soon be home to jobs, restaurants, shops, housing, a hotel and a park as new development reconnects 35 acres along the Columbia River to the city’s historic core.
By creating a vibrant new community, the City and its economic development partners are building the foundation to grow jobs, businesses, tourism, recreation and transportation.
Columbia Waterfront, LLC, a private investors group led by Gramor Development, worked closely with the City, Port of Vancouver and local residents to create a master plan for development. The project includes a maximum of 3,300 residential units, approximately 1 million square feet of office space, and retail space for restaurants, specialty shops and services.
Columbia Waterfront, LLC, allocated the 7-acre park land to the City to help reconnect people to the Columbia River and also committed to provide initial park improvements that include the waterfront trail. The land and improvements are estimated at $17 million.
This coming together at the waterfront embodies the dream Vancouver resident and leader, Esther Short, had when she dedicated the land some 150 years ago. It’s time to realize this exciting vision.
