Location-wise, downtown Vancouver occupies the southeastern portion of the peninsula in north central Vancouver, and is bounded by Burrard Inlet to the north, Stanley Park and the West End to the west, False Creek to the south, and Downtown Eastside to the east. Like most major cities, towering commercial high-rises and big businesses are prominent all throughout Vancouver's downtown, but if you're looking for a full-amenity condo building with all kinds of lifestyle perks and amazing urban views, it's also one of the best places to consider during your home search. Several defined neighbourhood areas encircle downtown Vancouver, such as Yaletown, West End, Coal Harbour, Downtown West and Downtown East while, many of the city's notable landmarks and most historic buildings also lay claim to this part of town.
As alluded to above, Downtown Vancouver real estate for sale is all about chic and stylish condominium residences, and because water surrounds the downtown area on three sides, many condos not only feature great views of the city, but also breathtaking outlooks of the English Bay and Strait of Georgia. In addition, most also include a host of common amenities that range from indoor pools and exercise facilities to sprawling entertainment spaces and business centers. In a city as large as Vancouver, the list of desirable condo buildings is certainly quite extensive, but some of the most sought after locations include One Harbour Green, Two Harbour Green, Three Harbour Green, Carina, Callisto, The Concord, Kings Landing, and of course The Fairmont Pacific Rim—what many consider to be the ultimate in luxury living in Vancouver.
An advanced public transit system also makes living in downtown Vancouver easy, as six skytrain stations are scattered throughout the downtown neighbourhoods, which run on three SkyTrain lines; the Expo Line, Millennium Line, and Canada Line. Furthermore, nearly every north-south bus route funnels into Downtown Vancouver, in addition to suburban routes to the North Shore, Burnaby, the Tri-Cities, Richmond, Delta, and South Surrey.
