Concord Pacific | Company | What happens when you give one developer 83 hectares of prime downtown land? Concord Pacific Place. Developed on the old Expo site, which in turn was built on the old CPR railyards, it is said to be the largest residential development in North America. Bankrolled by Li Ka-shing, the richest man in Asia, the master-planned “community” immediately evokes phrases like blandcouver and city of glass due to the homogenous, California-style, green-glass condos that sprouted up like a banality forest on the shores of False Creek.

Usage | “Oh look, another uninspired condo development a la Concord Pacific.”
