About Granville Island 2040

Granville Island 2040 is a planning project commissioned by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to produce a comprehensive vision for Granville Island for the next quarter century.

Since its modern redevelopment in the 1970s, Granville Island has been regarded internationally as a model of vibrant urban placemaking. The past forty years have seen massive changes in Vancouver caused by population growth, immigration, increasing cultural diversity, and the economic disruptions of global trade, new technology and climate change.

Granville Island 2040 presents a vision of the future in which these challenges are met, initiating an exciting new phase of growth and development, fostering a renewed passion for creativity and innovation, and a rekindling of the love affair with the Island for new generations.

Arts and Innovation Hub

The Arts and Innovation Hub will be a new destination on Granville Island housing a mix of arts-focused and innovative organizations as well as restaurants and services in a 120,000 square-foot space (formerly the buildings of Emily Carr University of Art & Design).

At this stage of the redevelopment process, we are launching a call for ideas to gain input from specialists in the fields of culture, creative technology, small manufacturing, artisanal retailing, food and beverage creation and restaurant concepts to help us develop how this space should be used, which will help further refine the vision for the building.
