CANADIAN PACIFIC RELOCATION PROPOSAL
 VANCOUVER, B. C.
On November 23, 1973 a joint CP entity working committee, chaired by
CP Research was commissioned to determine Canadian Pacific's overall present
and future transportation and land use requirements in the Greater Vancouver
area.
On May 28th, the final report was submitted to us and other interested
Canadian Pacific senior officers*
Attached is a memorandum proposal endorsed by this committee's senior
members which you may wish to send to the President,

VANCOUVER, B. C.
1. Statement of Assignment
ind Use To what future use should the following parcels of Canadian Pacific
controlled land in Vancouver be put?
(a) 60 land acres on Burrard Inlet (Front Yard) and 51 acres of
water lots.
(b) 165 land acres on False Creek and 10 acres of water lots.
(c) 24 acres of the Coquitlam Yard,
2. Relocation Proposal
location        The above lands be vacated for real estate development activities
compatible with the urban requirements. This requires that the
transportation facilities and activities affected be relocated
and reoriented at Coquitlam, Fraser Mills and the Front Yard.
(See attached map.) :"
Affected are: *:
(a) False Creek
(1) Piggyback
(2) Inland Container Terminal
(3) CP Transport - office and terminal
~ maintenance facility
(4) Passenger Train Servicing Facility
(5) Support Yard
(6) Western Assembly
(b). Front Yard
(1) CP Rail  - yards
- passenger facilities
(2) B.C.C.S. - Piers A-l andA~3
- Piers B and C trackage 3*  Recommendations
Since the potential value of the land vacated assuming adequate
zoning exceeds the estimated relocation costs ($54 million):
(a) Request Marathon Realty's policy towards funding of relocation costs based on their assessment of offsetting
values of the vacated land.
(b) Adopt the principle that the relocation proposal is technically feasible, and is economically feasible; subject
to confirmation by Marathon that the value of the vacated
land sustains the costs of relocation.
(c) Option or acquire immediately lands at Coquitlam and Fraser
Mills necessary to relocation and investigate the possible
acquisition of additional land in this area beyond relocation
requirements. Land of sufficient acreage, on CP Rail track
is now available at a single area - Fraser Mills. Based on
current land-use trends, the required land assembly will be
available only in the very short term*
(d) Obtain government agreement to adequate zoning and other   *
pertinent issues as part of the relocation.
4. Relocation Criteria Achieved
Entities (a) The transportation system(s) affected will remain whole,
k'n0 e operationally and financially. Relocation is complex as
Interfaces interfaces between entities and their related locations
are critical.
The development of the waterfront requires:
(1) The maximum possible reduction in the number of rail
cars handled in the Front Yard. This can best be
accomplished by relocating CP facilities, rail and
truck presently in False Creek and Western Assembly
to Fraser Mills.
(2) The transfer of the bulk of the rail marshalling and
storage requirements presently located in False Creek
and Front Yard to Coquitlam.
agible Benefits    (b) Subject to confirmation by Marathon Realty, a conservative
Lover Co^rs value of the vacated land offsets the total relocation costs
at in~company rates (S54 mill ion) - 1974 dollars. - 3
(      ^      4. Relocation Criteria Achieved (cont'd)
Intangible        (c) Intangible benefits include:
(1) Competitive position will be improved by construction of
transportation complex at Fraser Mills. The complex will
attract transportation oriented industries and accommodate
industrial shift from Vancouver to the south and east,
which is already beginning to manifest itself.
(2) Improved image with well planned relocation.
(3) Permit consolidation of land position with capability to
accommodate long term growth.
Politically       (d) The proposal is politically feasible and desirable.

The following Items describe the implementation of this
proposal.  They are:
1. SPEC MASTER R.A.C. MATRIX (No. 0-134-1)
Some nineteen prime tasks necessary for relocation Implementation are grouped into these five phases:
a. Master Approval
b. Coquitlam Yard Study Design and Costing
c. Project Manager and Implementation Team Appointment
d. Facility Design
e. Facility Construction'
Joint Appropriation
For each of the prime tasks, this matrix identified the Involvement,
as to responsibility, authority and communication of twenty- ■■.-■.-■?
three participants. / ;
2. SPEC MASTER NETWORK (No. 0-134-2)
This diagram shows:
a. the starting date, duration and finishing date of
each relocation activity.  Each unit of time shown
Is equivalent to three months.
b. the relative staging of these activities over time. Based on the master network, following Board of Directors1
approval of the Vancouver Relocation Proposal, it.will, take
five and one-half years for relocation of .transportation
facilities and activities and the release of lands for real
estate development.
3  NETWORK APPROVAL
The Master R.A.C. Matrix and Master Network issued by the
SPEC Operations Group Office of the Chief Engineer was
based on information furnished by the Rail Study Working
Committee and carries the approval of C. Newfeld for the
Chief Engineer.
In Mr. W.A. Smith's July 15th letter of-transmittal, with
the SPEC Master Plans he states:
"In my view on a project of this size 'the project manager
should be appointed as soon as scheme is approved by the
Board of Directors and should be indicated on plan C-134-2." VANCOUVER PROJECT
