The Station Street site is owned by Providence Health Care (PHC) and is located in the northwest corner of the False Creek Flats local area. The irregularly-shaped site is 18.5 acres (7.5 ha) in area — over three times larger than the current St. Paul’s hospital site on Burrard Street. The Station Street site is bounded by Station Street to the west, Prior Street and Malkin Avenue to the north, Trillium Park to the east, and National Avenue (easement) to the south. The site is in a highly accessible location, within a 5-minute walk (400 metres or less) of SkyTrain (Main Street-Science World Station), regional and international passenger coach and train services (Pacific Central Station) and bus services along Main Street and Prior Street. The site is also within close proximity to a number of established neighbourhoods, including Strathcona, Chinatown and City Gate and sits between two parks – Thornton Park and the regional sports fields unofficially known as Trillium Park. The property was originally home to the Great Northern Railway Station which was demolished in 1965. It has been a vacant gravel lot for several decades, and is used for vehicle storage and staging for events and film crews from time to time
