Yaletown

This famous warehouse district in Vancouver was created in response to the rapid growth and expansion away from Gastown at the turn of the century.
The Canadian Pacic Railway needed more space as trade and industry ourished. Dozens of large warehouses were built to accommodate this demand and have been transformed over the years into a mix of residential, commercial and retail spaces.
Learn how the City of Vancouver transformed this heavy industrial area from a contaminated wasteland into one of the trendiest and most vibrant neighbourhoods in Canada.
We show you some of the city’s most iconic buildings as well as major renovation projects and community planning marvels. Public projects including the city’s stadiums, theatres and seawall expansions are discussed as well as how the city densi es while maintaining and protecting its historic heritage buildings.


Starthcona

Vancouver’s oldest and most diverse residential area. Strathcona has remained the city’s “hidden gem” for years. Learn how this historical area has survived and ourished over the years.
This area shows its charm through unique architectural styles, beautiful homes, corner stores, historic schools, churches, renovation projects and beautiful gardens. Trace the route of the Vancouver Electric Railway and experience community like never before.
