Defining Vancouver’s MetroCore

Vancouver MetroCore

11 Aug Defining Vancouver’s MetroCore

With over 50 years of experience in representing Vancouver’s downtown business community, the DVA is now advocating for sustainable city-making in Vancouver through promoting social diversity, economic resilience and urban innovation.

In order to meet the needs and aspirations of a growing city centre, the DVA’s jurisdiction has expanded beyond the downtown peninsula to Burrard Street, 16th Ave. and Clark Drive.

This expanded area has been coined the “MetroCore” and encompasses key growth areas that will likely redefine Vancouver’s core in the coming decades. It is home to a diverse group of residential, cultural and business communities. With an expanded geographical focus, the DVA represents a collection of stakeholders whose needs, hopes, and fears in Vancouver’s development are equally diverse.
