The beauty of the waterfront resort lifestyle at Concord
Pacific Place is that you can do everything - or nothing
With the sparkling, sunny expanse of False Creek unfolding before
you, here is vibrant resort-styled living at its best. With acres of

If boating is your thing, the new Quayside Marina is the perfect
place to go sailing, kayaking, or canoeing. With a new 500 foot,
floating public pier extending from the foot of Davie Street out into
False Creek, the new marina offers residents the convenience of a
ferry stop and launching for small crafts. Designed by the acclaimed
architectural frm Busby and Associates, the marina also
includes 150 slips for boats of varying sizes, visitor moorage, and
off-site underground parking for marina users.
"The marina animates the waterfront," observes architect Peter Busby. "False Creek has always been the centre of Vancouver's recreational waterfront activity. The marina provides an opportunity to restore that activity on a scale that relates to people. It's the reason people gravitate to areas like Sausalito in San Francisco. It's fun to sit in the sunshine and watch the boats go by. And the public pier makes that enjoyment accessible to everyone."
