Water’s Edge: Cafes, hotels and other commercial properties sitting on pricey Metro Vancouver landMay 12, 2016 6:38 pm
Commercial properties may only take up two per cent of the land lining Metro Vancouver’s oceanfront, but this includes nearly 600 businesses that will feed, entertain and pamper you along the shoreline.
There are at least 77 office buildings, 73 hotels, 37 stores, 12 restaurants and five theatres directly on the Pacific Ocean between Lions Bay and South Surrey. (There are likely even more stores and restaurants that would not have been listed separately if, for example, they reside in a building primarily used for offices.)
The Sun analyzed the commercial makeup of our waterfront using real estate data provided by Landcor Data Corp.
We found three-quarters of the oceanfront commercial hub is in Vancouver and 15 per cent is in Richmond — mainly due to Steveston.
