New St. Paul’s Hospital Plan integrates service delivery, access and land use
The new St. Paul’s Hospital redevelopment required a parcel of land that could adequately accommodate its new buildings, and best serve the needs of patients from across the province. For this reason, the 18.4-acre Station Street site in the heart of Vancouver was identified as the ideal location. IBI Group’s masterplan for the new site accommodates the movement of the hospital 3km east to a centralized location on a brownfield site on False Creek Flats – further inland and connected to the wider surrounding community.
The development includes a new Integrated Health Campus with a state-of-the-art hospital, research facilities, commercial and hotel support services, and room for future expansion. The rezoning addresses key urban design elements including mobility to and through the site, open spaces, connections, building height, massing, and other elements to ensure the development is a model for health service delivery, while integrating with surrounding land uses.
With a site-wide zoning due for completion in 2020 and construction starting shortly thereafter, the new St. Paul’s Hospital will integrate its programs and services, transform the future of healthcare for British Columbians, and continue to lead innovations in care, research and teaching. On a site the size of 15 football fields, this is one of the largest undeveloped sites in Vancouver, in a convenient and accessible location behind Pacific Central Station and several key transportation arteries.
