Downtown

Downtown Vancouver

Downtown Vancouver is home to the central shopping, entertainment, and business districts in Vancouver. For a long time, the downtown core was renowned primarily for these distinctions, and while tourists and visitors flocked to the area, it was not considered significantly residential. All that has changed in recent years; with the addition of gourmet markets and luxury residences, along with the continued growth of fine dining restaurants and high end boutiques in the neighbourhood, Downtown Vancouver has successfully integrated cosmopolitan chic and residential comforts.

who lives there

The residential population in Downtown Vancouver has been steadily increasing, and the last ten years exponentially so.  Studies estimate over 100,000 people will live in the area by 2021.  Most residents are professionals with a high level of education, and due to the large number of businesses in the neighbourhood, sales and service people also populate this area.  Downtown Vancouver is a convenient location for those working close by, but families generally move away from the downtown core.  The average age of residents is 40 and most are single and employed.

things to do

Downtown Vancouver is a hub of activity.  Restaurants, nightclubs, theatres and shops abound.  From Coast seafood restaurant on Alberni or Joe Fortes on Robson and Thurlow to a number of Japanese and Vietnamese restaurants on Robson there is no shortage of selection for dining out.  Whether a casual stop for breakfast at Café Crepe on Granville St, lunch at the Cactus Club on Robson St, a cocktail at the Bacchus Lounge in the Wedgewood Hotel, or an Asian-Morrocan influenced dinner at Sanafir on Granville, diners can find something to suit any taste.  The Vancouver Art Gallery has a substantial permanent collection and also exhibits various artists or art movements throughout the year.  The heritage building itself, on Robson and Hornby, is worth seeing, and the patio at the cafe is a fabulous people watching spot and a great place for lunch or an afternoon snack.

real estate

New real estate developments in Downtown Vancouver have contributed to its growth.  The construction of properties such as the Wall Centre and, more recently, the Shangri-La (Vancouver’s tallest building at 62 stories high) have brought to Vancouver the concept of luxury residences with the convenience and amenities of a hotel stay.  The Shangri-La has a spa in house and a grocery store (Urban Fare) across the street.  Condo prices are higher than average in the many new developments, but real estate growth continues in the neighbourhood.
