The Heights District is the result of a coordinated multiyear effort between the City and the community to redevelop the former Tower Mall and surrounding area in central Vancouver. This new district will be a vibrant, walkable, mixed-use neighborhood that is strategically located in the heart of Vancouver — a place where a mix of services and amenities, such as stores, restaurants, parks, schools and transit stations, are within a 20-minute walk. The project team is currently finalizing the design and engineering of the infrastructure of the new district.Learn More
