Granville Island is an urban planning success story, analyzed and copied worldwide. Transforming it from a derelict industrial park to a thriving market and entertainment destination, the Island's planners have carefully and affectionately guided its growth.
To ensure the Island remains viable for years to come, CMHC will be conducting studies into the infrastructure (buildings, seawalls and docks), transportation, and urban design of the Island. These studies, expected to take about two years, will direct future and long range plans. The process will be transparent and inclusive of all stakeholders - visitors and tenants included.

Where else in the world can rusty tin-sided factories boast rebirth as a Public Market, an art school, shops, restaurants, theatres, galleries, a hotel, and a great deal more?
