Hastings West Area Profile Hastings West between Richards and Thurlow Streets in the heart of downtown Vancouver is undergoing a revitalization. It’s spurred on by the new commercial and residential developments on and surrounding this major street connecting Coal Harbour through downtown to the evolving Hastings Crossing area.
Home to some of the city’s most stunning and well-preserved heritage buildings, the area isn’t looking back – but to the future. Regeneration of the area is a key strategic focus for the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association,
which represents the 8,000 businesses in its 90-block area.
