Hapa is developing schematic design options for North Vancouver’s Shipyards Lot 5 that will become the City’s signature public plaza and event space on the Burrard Inlet waterfront. Located on the site of the former Machine Shop associated with the Wallace Shipyards, the development will include a combination of hotel, retail, community amenity and restaurant uses that surround a partially covered open space that supports large concerts, major festivals and events, and will overlap summer water play and winter ice skating programs under a retractable roof.

Hapa’s work involves studying design and programming opportunities in the space for up to 5-6,000 people, and in combination with the adjacent Shipbuilders Square and Spirit Trail, will accommodate major events of up to 10,000 people. Schematic design will be completed in 2016, with construction complete in 2019.
