Description of local area

The west side neighbourhoods of Shaughnessy & Fairview have been a center of Vancouver culture since the city was built. With the shops of Granville Street steps away and the nightlife of downtown just across the bridge, you live in a true urban village.

The area around the APT Living residence has a quiet, suburban feel yet just a 10-minute walk will take you to the many bustling shops, cafes and restaurants of the neighbourhood. Broadway street is just a 5-minute walk from the residence and this is where you will find the transportation links that will take you to Downtown Vancouver in 15 minutes, and Beautiful British Columbia’s mountains and trails in 40 minutes.
