The Urban Land Institute has nominated Vancouver's Southeast False Creek Waterfront development to win an Urban Space Award. This award recognizes examples of vibrant public open space that have transformed surrounding communities. To some this might seem ironic considering the controversial Olympic Village nightmare development that has left tax payers on the hook. Tax dollars aside, the development of the southeast False Creek waterfront lands has sparked a number of notable developments in the vicinity which has brought life to an otherwise deadzone. Vancouver's southeast False Creek waterfront development will go up against four other nominated sites located across North America.
