Con­cord Pa­cific Place in Van­cou­ver, a res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity on the north shore of False Creek, is in its fi­nal phases and pre­par­ing to meet the world, says its de­vel­oper. The project, which will have 15,000 res­i­dents by com­ple­tion, will be ad­ja­cent to the hockey venue for the 2010 Win­ter Olympics, as well as near things like the awards cer­e­monies and the Ath­lete’s Vil­lage. The de­vel­oper of a ho­tel and lux­ury homes com­plex in Peachland, B.C., has pro­posed part­ner­ing with the District of Peachland coun­cil to con­struct a $2.9-mil­lion, year-round water­front event and per­for­mance cen­tre on a pier on Okana­gan Lake. Trepanier Manor Corp. says the pier would be com­plete by 2011 and in­clude a stage and boat moor­age, as well as the po­ten­tial for a club and wine bar.
