Olympic Village

Olympic Village is the embodiment of a revival. Over the last decade, the neighbourhood has gone from abandoned shipyards, to hosting Olympians, to empty buildings with an unclear fate, to the bustling enclave it is today. Now, in its latest version, residents (“villagers”) enjoy incredible views of the mountains, ease of transit, ample choice of beers to sip on at any given time, and a few classic Vancouver rooms to calm the hunger (when a Flying Pig opens, you know your ‘hood has made it). Large-scale building sites indicate even further development for the area.
