Are you a lover of all things urban, chic, and upbeat? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, Downtown Vancouver is the place for you. Downtown, (as residents like to refer to this epicentre) has more than enough cutting-edge shopping, uber-cool eateries, and modern living to offer the most discerning of citified folk. Housing in this superb area ranges from newly built high-rises with spectacular views of the Pacific shores to heritage-style low-rise living with walkouts onto the bustling streets of Downtown Vancouver. This sweet city has a 15-minute walking radius—head to Stanley Park for a run around the seawall, catch a concert at Roger’s Arena, or simply take in the sights. Whatever you choose to do, it will be easy to ingratiate yourself into the heart of Downtown by simply stepping outside your front door.
