Fisher’s Landing Transit Center Study

C-TRAN is investigating the opportunity to provide transit-supportive development at the Fisher’s Landing Transit Center property, located in Vancouver on 164th Avenue just north of SR-14. The agency has engaged a team of designers, engineers, policymakers, and community organizers to study the feasibility of new uses at the site.

In January 2018, C-TRAN prepared a community survey to gather input on proposed uses and general community concerns related to redevelopment of the transit center site. Following that survey and the results of a market analysis, the consultant team prepared draft conceptual development plans. The plans retain the transit and parking functions currently on the site, but reimagine there configuration to support new residential, retail, and office uses. Over the next month the consultant team will work to refine these concept plans, but first, we need your input!   

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey. Your feedback is invaluable to C-TRAN and the future of this project.

* 1. Did you participate in the first community survey for the Fisher's Landing Transit Center redevelopment project?

* 2. Are you a resident of:

* 3. Do you currently use the transit center?

* 4. How do you get to and from the transit center?

* 5. If you bike to the transit center, do you use the bike lockers?

* 6. If you use the transit center, what routes do you use? (select all that apply)

The following plans represent three potential layouts for future uses at the transit center site. Each plan includes a brief description and a few questions to identify your preferences.

Option 1: Main Street – This transit-supportive development concept illustrates one main street running north-south through the center of the site with one new auto access point stemming from 164th. This alternative shows opportunity for mixed-use, mixed-income housing with a focus on food and beverage destination and small convenience retail for commuters. The concept also proposed a new transit street cutting east-west from 164th and Cascade used mainly by C-TRAN buses for pick-up and drop-off, edged and fronted with a new central parking garage with new community services and amenities such as community spaces, transit center and information. The concept located a new community-oriented building to the most southern point of the new main street connected to the proposed wetland park and new bike and pedestrian routes in and around the site.

Option 2: Food and Beverage Destination – This transit-supportive development concept illustrates a grid of streets oriented perpendicular towards SE Cascade Park Dr. with one new auto access point, yielding eight parcels for a variety of land-uses. This alternative shows opportunity for mixed-use, mixed-income housing with a focus on food and beverage destination and small convenience retail for commuters. The concept also proposes a new transit street cutting east-west from 164th and Cascade used mainly by C-TRAN buses for pick-up and drop-off, edged and fronted with new community services and amenities such as community spaces, transit center and information, public open spaces and convenient parking. All concepts proposed a central community park, access to a wetland park (south) and safe bike and pedestrian routes in and around the site.

Option 3: Employment Focus – This transit-supportive development concept illustrates a grid of streets with a central green coupled with the transit parking garage located in the center of the development. This alternative proposed a major employer locating to the most southern portion of the site and fronting the new east-west transit street. The concept proposed the opportunity for mixed-use, mixed-income housing with a focus on food and beverage and small convenience retail for commuters and a new employer headquarters. All concepts proposed a central community park, access to a wetland park (south) and safe bike and pedestrian routes in and around the site.
