Just steps from

Yaletown
& Gastown

VCII is located just steps from both Yaletown and Gastown, two of Vancouver’s most celebrated neighbourhoods. Formerly an industrial area, Yaletown was redeveloped after Expo 86 and has since become a model of high density urban living, with a uniquely walkable blend of parks, shopping, high rise apartments, heritage buildings, great restaurants and an overall exceptional quality of life. 

Meet the

Neighbours

A convenient, accessible and amenity-rich office building is important for attracting and retaining the very best employees. But arguably even more essential is having a location in a vibrant urban centre with opportunities for experiencing and engaging in culture, recreation, an active outdoor lifestyle and a genuine sense of community. Located in the heart of Vancouver, regularly noted as one of the world’s most livable cities, VCII provides exactly that.

In addition to Yaletown and Gastown, VCII is close to many other highly engaging and livable nearby neighbourhoods, offering the best of all worlds for you and your staff. Exceptionally connected by public transit and various transportation routes taking you throughout Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, VCII offers access to Vancouver’s iconic mix of livability, engagement and show-stopping natural beauty.

Neighbourhood Map

Central Business District

This is where VCII lives. Home to a wide assortment of offices, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, markets and community centres, Vancouver’s Central Business District is a modern hub of innovation and enterprise. Easily accessible throughout the region by the Canada Line and Expo Line SkyTrain, bus, bike lanes and vehicle routes, and surrounded on all sides by ocean and mountain views, Vancouver’s CBD is one of the most desirable places to live and work in the world.

Gastown

The heart of historic Vancouver, featuring authentic exposed brick and beam buildings that have been redeveloped into high end boutiques, elegant contemporary homes, and many of the best dining and lounges in the province.

Mount Pleasant

Just two SkyTrain stops from VCII, Mount Pleasant is one of Vancouver’s most dynamic and youthful urban neighbourhoods.

Coal Harbour

A picturesque community on the northeastern edge of Vancouver’s downtown peninsula. Coal Harbour features stunning mountain views and close access to Stanley Park. The neighbourhood has a healthy mix of high rise condos, community facilities and seaside parks, with the Seawall running right through it.

Yaletown

One of Vancouver’s most exciting neighbourhoods, with an idyllic mix of dining, parks, recreation, shopping, community centres and everyday urban amenities. Bordered by False Creek to the south, Yaletown is connected to communities throughout the region via the Canada Line SkyTrain, Vancouver Seawall and major driving routes.

Cambie Corridor

With the arrival of the Canada Line SkyTrain connecting downtown withVancouver International Airport, the Cambie Corridor has been reinvented as a vital Vancouver hub. The area around the Broadway-City Hall station, just three SkyTrain stops from VCII, pulses with energy. The notable intersection of Broadway and Cambie is anchored by retailers such as Home Depot, Canadian Tire, BC Liquor Store and Whole Foods, plus restaurants, bookstores, banking and more.

Broadway Corridor

Comprising the second-largest business district after downtown, the Broadway Corridor is also a hub for shopping, dining and entertainment. A highly central neighbourhood closely connected to Kitsilano, the waterfront and the Seawall, and easily accessible from VCII, the area is also attractive for its residential opportunities. The planned rapid transit system along Broadway that will connect the area to the UBC campus will provide increased accessibility and convenience.
