Neighbourhood Series: Living in Vancouver

Some call it the big city, some call it a little city. One thing is for sure: there’s plenty to get up to when you’re in the middle of it all and it doesn’t get more in the middle than Olympic Village.

With transit access to the entire lower mainland in walking distance and easy corridors to drive into, past, or away from the city, this neighbourhood is a true gem and gives you both the hustle and bustle of the city and the community feeling of living just outside of it. This beautiful area was developed for (you guessed it) the Olympics and has continued being developed since then becoming one of Vancouver’s most sought-after and greenest areas.

In keeping with Vancouver’s Greenest City targets, the Olympic Village uses innovative energy efficiency and sustainability systems like solar heating and green roofs.
