Over the years, there has been an explosion of condos near Skytrain stations to make for easy commutes around Vancouver. There have also been various exceptionally successful, mixed-use projects that are actually right on top of the station or in the same block. Furthermore, that market has put a premium on the land as homes and condos by SkyTrain stations have gone up.
No matter where you live near a SkyTrain or Translink station in Downtown Vancouver, Coquitlam, Burnaby, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Surrey and Richmond you are minutes to and from your destinations. Sporting Events at BC Place, Rogers Arena or theater and concerts and shopping and dining out is an advantage for anyone who lives near a SkyTrain Station.
