Some urban geeks may criticize Vancouver’s downtown core for being soulless, but for those who live in towering skyscrapers above the city’s lights, the busy streets, plentiful retail, and proximity to parks and big-league sports make this metro core the only place worth considering.

Many dwellers of this city of glass abide in 5oo-sq.-ft. condos, squeezed between the financial district’s towering office blocks and large department stores. Developers are still finding space to build bigger, higher, shinier options for those who want in, meaning you can expect Vancouver’s skyline to drastically change over the next decade.
