Savour Hastings West

Hastings West is a distinctive sense of place and arrival. Its stimulating juxtaposition of the old and the new; the established and the unconventional. It’s home to stunning architecture, like the iconic Marine Building, and epic views, from the top of the Vancouver Lookout. It’s also a walkable and bikable corridor with connections and bike lanes.

Hastings West is home to the Downtown Vancouver BIA’s first Perch, Lot 19 which provides the many office workers along the street an opportunity for respite. Lot 19 is sandwiched by the Vancouver Club, Terminal City Club and Mink Chocolate and acts as a thoroughfare between Hastings and the Waterfront. You may even recognize it from many Vancouver-filmed TV shows and movies. It is activated with public seating, buskers, games, and a variety of special events.

Win a Hastings West Prize Pack

Thanks to the Downtown Vancouver BIA, a lucky Miss604 reader can spend the day wandering, exploring, and savouring the sights and good eats along Hastings West.
