There is a reason that some of our City’s most interesting businesses, restaurants, retailers and residents are locating here. Closer to downtown than Yaletown, it’s Vancouver’s most authentic district. Where our true artists still dominate. Where you can walk the greenway and see the history and the future all in one glance. It is an area of great contrasts, and great inspiration. There is an edge here – but if you appreciate diversity, Gastown will reward you.
