THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The Village on False Creek is the most modern, urban community in Vancouver's last waterfront property located in the Southeast False Creek area, certified LEED Platinum by the U.S. Green Council to be the very greenest neighborhoods in North America layered with historical references, social spaces, events, programs, community garden spaces, and many recreational opportunities. The Salt Building (now Craft), Urban Fare Market, London Drugs, Terra Breads Cafe, Tap & Barrel, Creekside Community Centre, Habitat Island, and Hinge Park are just some of the features in the Village. Minutes from Chinatown and world class shopping and eateries may be found within walking distance on Cambie Street and West Broadway, this is an ideal opportunity for a more relaxed urban lifestyle minutes from downtown which is both quiet and safe!

The Vancouver Olympic Village, now the Village in False Creek, was built by the Millennium Development Group for the 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Paralympics hosted in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A 1,000,000 sq ft (93,000 m2) village with over 1000 units, that was able to accommodate over 2,800 athletes, coaches, and officials. The creek divides the downtown core from the Lower Mainland and the rest of the city. The master planned community is centrally located to parks, schools, transit, and shopping - residents here can expect to commute to and from downtown Vancouver with easy access to ferry boats and buses, 2 Skytrain stations, and the world's longest uninterrupted waterfront path mostly along the seawall. The 28 km Seaside Greenway is a pathway, including the Stanley Park Seawall, extends from the Vancouver Convention Centre to Spanish Banks Park. Perfect for a walk, cycle, or jog, it is the most popular recreational spot in the city. Just south of Science World, its waterfront is part of the False Creek Seawall promenade and bike route, Science World, pedestrian ferry wharf (Aquabus and False Creek Ferries) and between both the Main Street and Olympic Village SkyTrain stations.

Close to Yaletown, City Hall, Cambie Street Bridge, North False Creek, Granville Island, South Granville, the waterfront promenade (accessible by bike, car, skytrain, boat and foot) along the seawall which provides 3 major bike/walk ways - the north-south Ontario bike-way, the Central Valley Greenway (CVG) a 25 km regional greenway which connects Vancouver with other neighbouring municipalities and the Waterfront bikeway which connects all the downtown neighbourhoods - all very quiet, convenient and safe (building is adjacent to the essential service building with paramedics, police, and fire fighters).
