Downtown Vancouver (Vancouver West).

Consistently ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities. Downtown Vancouver is a young, multicultural, world-class urban centre that has served as a successful urban model for other cities worldwide. Modern lofts, condos, and townhouses exist alongside the original gothic, neoclassical, and Edwardian buildings of the downtown core. Expo 86 created the impetus to build modern amenities including Canada Place, the Vancouver Convention Centre, and Skytrain and continued afterwards with the redevelopment of the Expo lands which has led to the upscale neighbouring community of Yaletown . Downtown Vancouver is unique as not only does it serve as the city's business centre as well as a vibrant scene for entertainment, arts, shopping, and restaurants but downtown also boasts a large residential offering with mixed use condos and townhome living.  Vancouver is one of Canada’s most densely populated cities and is dubbed the City of Glass by local writer Douglas Coupland referring to its' residents who enjoy their high rise views of the city’s ocean, mountains, and lush green spaces.
