Project Experience

Downtown and Town Centre Planning
Redevelopment Incentives for Historic Downtown – District of Mission, BC

Coriolis assisted the District of Mission in the creation of a package of incentives to encourage mixed use redevelopment in the historic Downtown.  Drawing on this experience, Coriolis has been approached by several other small communities, including Sechelt and Harrison Hot Springs, regarding tools that local government can use to help encourage redevelopment and densification in older commercial districts.

City Centre Plan Implementation – Fort McMurray, Alberta

Coriolis is working with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo to develop a capital funding strategy for public realm work and infrastructure that will make downtown Fort McMurray more attractive for high density residential development. The project is exploring the potential for tax increment financing, off-site levies, and strategic land sales as ways to fund parks, civic facilities, and servicing.

Market Analysis and Density Policies for Town Centre Plans
North Vancouver, BC

Coriolis provided market analysis inputs to town centre plans in the District of North Vancouver, including Lower Capilano, Lower Lynn, and Maplewood. Our work included forecasting demand for residential and commercial development, as well as recommending land use and density policies that will encourage redevelopment.

Long Range Development Potential for Downtown Plan
High River, AB

Coriolis was retained by High River, Alberta to provide long range estimates of development potential, as an input to the creation of a downtown plan.

City of Victoria Downtown Assessment
Victoria, BC

Coriolis was selected by the City of Victoria to help guide programs and initiatives to improve its downtown. The work included evaluating whether the core has been improving or declining over the last decade and recommending strategies the City could pursue to help ensure that downtown remains vibrant and healthy in economic and social terms.
