New Design Renderings

The City has partnered with Shipyards Development Ltd, a subsidiary of Quay Property Management Corp. (QPM), to develop The Shipyards - Lot 5, bringing the City a significant step closer to delivering a unique, interactive, year-round, activity driven people place that will include an outdoor public skating rink and a water play area. The outdoor public skating rink will be the largest in the Lower Mainland.

Site Activities

Construction at The Shipyards – Lot 5 is now underway. Remediation work is anticipated to be complete in June of this year, while construction of the commercial building and open space is scheduled to begin late summer 2017. Completion of The Shipyards – Lot 5 is expected late 2018.

The History of The Shipyards

The Shipyards first opened as Wallace Shipyards in 1906 and grew into one of the most impressive industrial operations in western Canada before closing its doors in 1992. Over its many years of operation, the Shipyards have become a defining aspect of the City's identity. Today, the Shipyards are recognized as a Primary Heritage Site in the City of North Vancouver Heritage Inventory


The Shipyards have been restored through the Pier Development to accommodate retail and commercial space, public plazas, interpretive signage, waterfront walkways and restored piers. Pier Development Phase lll, the last component, is currently underway.

The last remaining parcel to be developed with The Shipyards, is Lot 5, a City-owned parcel of land located in the center of The Shipyards site. As part of the Central Waterfront Development Plan, a vision for Lot 5 was established to create a significant people place with active and interrelated public spaces offering year-round activities all of which are supported by a surrounding commercial development. To further clarify the vision, in April 2015, Council endorsed the Site Planning Principles to guide future development of Lot 5. In June of 2015, a Request for Expression of interest was undertaken and then a more detailed Request for Proposal process. Out of this process, Quay Property Management Corp. (QPM) was selected by the City as its partner to develop The Shipyards - Lot 5.

A public information session held in April 2016. See Information Session Display Boards and Development Highlights for more information.
