South False Creek Seawall
Vancouver , 2018
Revitalization of the South False Creek Seawall.
The City of Vancouver contracted Jacob Bros to revitalize and upgrade Vancouver’s oldest section of seawall, along the False Creek waterfront. This year-long project included the separation of pedestrian and bike paths, extensive landscaping and tree planting as well as partial fencing around the Charleson dog park and upgraded street lighting. Work was carried out from Alder Bay Walk to Stamps Landing, and along Creekside Drive (just west of Granville Island), in a congested public-use area with multiple stakeholders. Multidisciplinary work required dedicated traffic management, civil, electrical, concrete and horticultural crews to coordinate their efforts over a roughly two-km project site. Over 50 new trees were planted, and over a kilometre of new bike lanes were added to Vancouver’s growing network. A new electrical network was constructed to provide a new highly-efficient streetlight system that is architecturally suited to the park.
