The City Starts
VCII is located in a vibrant urban neighbourhood, surrounded by every essential urban amenity. Countless award-winning restaurants, boutique hotels and coffee shops are just steps from your office, ideal for off-site gatherings or special celebrations, staff parties or important client events. This downtown location is at the heart of everything organizations need to thrive.
High end shopping is just moments away at the three-storey Nordstrom flagship store, Pacific Centre—the biggest mall in Vancouver—and the nearby Robson Street retail district. Just around the corner is the iconic Vancouver Public Library square and the designated location for the new Vancouver Art Gallery. Rogers Arena, home to the Canucks, and BC Place, home of the Whitecaps and the Lions, are just a short walk down Georgia Street—perfect for treating clients or staff to an evening out.
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.
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.
Just two SkyTrain stops from VCII, Mount Pleasant is one of Vancouver’s most dynamic and youthful urban neighbourhoods.
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.
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.
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.
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.
within a few blocks
Whether you’re hosting clients or employees, friends or family, you’re just a few blocks from some of the best dining destinations and entertainment venues in Canada—not to mention coffee, cocktail and craft beer cultures that are second to none.

Just down Granville Street are the Vogue Theatre, the Commodore Ballroom and the Orpheum Theatre, three venues offering a range of entertainment all year long, from comedy to classical music to contemporary rock.
