Project Summary:
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard are undertaking a project to replace the existing aging workshop at the Kitsilano Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) Search and Rescue station.  The station is near the entrance of False Creek in Vancouver, and services to respond to marine emergencies within the Vancouver Harbour area.  The station workshop is vital to their operations, which facilitates the on-going maintenance of the Search and Rescue equipment and vessels stationed at Kitsilano.
The proposed project involves the removal of existing 2.44m x 6.10m container workshop, and replacement with a new two story building with an approximate footprint of 5.11m x 6.37m.  The new workshop will be constructed on the existing concrete wharf. 

Project Location:
This project is located on the wharf at the Kitsilano Coast Guard Station, at 1661 Whyte Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia. The base lies on the edge near the entrance to False Creek, adjacent to the Burrard Street Bridge (to the south) and Vanier Park to the northwest. The base is accessible via road access, as well as by water for vessel and barge access.
