Vancouver's Waterfront Community

 

Waterfront

From shopping and dining to water sports and parks, Vancouver's waterfront community continues to grow with several large scale projects in the works. 

What will 2018 at The Waterfront look like? Plan to grab a fresh seafood dish on the WildFin patio while watching sailboats pass by the 90-foot Grant Street Pier. A gathering place for all who visit The Waterfront, the cable stay pier is the focal point for the $1.5 billion project by Gramor Development. Sip on a 5K IPA from Ghost Runners Brewing, or head to Twigs Bistro if a martini is your drink of choice while the sun sets on the horizon. For a riverside retreat on The Waterfront, stay at the Indigo Hotel—a unique and vibrant boutique property that exudes the local culture.

Bring the kids to play in the City of Vancouver's new 7.3-acre Waterfront Park that will feature an open lawn for cartwheels, an urban beach for sandcastles, and seating areas perfect for picnics. The Columbia River Waterfront Renaissance Trail will connect to the new park, extending the current five-mile trail from Vancouver's urban core to Wintler Park.

At the adjacent Terminal 1, the Port of Vancouver is planning a public marketplace that will supplement downtown's thriving Farmers Market, a trendy Marriott AC Hotel, and commercial and community spaces for all to enjoy. Stop by WareHouse '23 for bold and diverse flavors, drawing from the riverfront location with a seafood-heavy menu.
