Downtown Vancouver is known for its nightlife, Pacific centre mall, avenue shopping hubs, luxury living, hotels and architecture. It includes the many landmarks like Main Vancouver Public Library, The Orpheum, BC Stadium, Rogers Arena(home of the Canucks), and recent architecture like Vancouver House hi-rise residential buildings.

There is a mix of housing types in this area ranging from townhomes, high-rise condos, and luxury upscale buildings. There are condos conversions from commercial buildings, hotels that keep some of the historic look of the downtown. The look of downtown is changing quickly with a number of beautiful buildings with architectural flair.

Downtown has been predominantly a business and residential mix but recent movement into the downtown core has seen a resurgence of empty-nesters moving in. This area although very urban offers some of best outdoor westcoast living has to offer with Stanley Park, its seawall, as well as nearby Second beach. It is easy to see why the lifestyle here is envied worldwide. Downtown Granville street is the Vancouver nightlight hub. Meanwhile Gastown provides a blend of retail and stylish lofts that many feel remind them of Montreal.
