Vancouver Downtown Real Estate
Bordered by the Coast Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver is recognized as one of the world's most liveable cities, with one of the smallest carbon footprints of any major city in North America.
The City of Vancouver is renowned for its innovative programs in the areas of sustainability, accessibility and inclusivity. In February 2009, Mayor Gregor Robertson launched the Greenest City Initiative with a goal to map out how we can earn the title of becoming the greenest city by 2020. This makes Vancouver downtown real estate an excellent investment.
In February and March 2010, Vancouver hosted the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games with great enthusiasm. For Vancouver, the benefits of hosting the world will continue with memories to last a lifetime, but also leave Vancouver with Olympic-quality sports facilities, public transit, green buildings and arts and culture – legacies that residents and visitors alike will enjoy and appreciate for many years to come.
Downtown Vancouver also includes residential real estate in the form of high-rise apartments and condos in Yaletown, Coal Harbour, Downtown, Midtown, Chinatown, Gastown, the Westend and False Creek North. Other downtown neighbourhoods include Granville Mall and Entertainment District, Downtown South, Japantown and Strathcona. There are two major sports facilities in downtown core. The NHL’ Vancouver Canucks play at the GM Place, while the CFL’s Lions use the neighbouring BC Place Stadium.
