Five Finalists for Master Plan Competition
The transformation of the City Centre Lands into an environmentally-sustainable, transit-oriented, mixed-use development for 30,000 residents continues to build momentum.

A master plan design competition for external consulting teams shortlisted the top five proposals from 33 remarkable submissions to create master plans for the 217-hectare site. The five firms announced in August 2010 and selected to submit master plans include:

BNIM, from Kansas City, USA
Foster & Partners, from London, UK
KCAP Architects & Planners from Rotterdam, Netherlands
Perkins + Will, Vancouver, Canada
Sweco International AB, Stockholm, Sweden
