Situated to the west of North Vancouver City, Lions Gate is an established residential neighbourhood that borders the Capilano River as well as the TransCanada Highway. There are growing numbers of Vancouver condos for sale in Lions Gate, most of which tend to be mid-rise buildings that blend into the natural landscape of the area.
The center of Lions Gate is undergoing a large-scale community transformation to become the Lions Gate Village, a pedestrian-oriented space that will will act as the entry-point into the neighbourhood. As the first area that visitors reach when they cross the Lions Gate Bridge from mainland Vancouver, this new community plan aims to boost local-businesses, community recreation, as well as offer many new housing options. As with most neighbourhoods in North Vancouver District, Lions Gate enjoys a nature-filled atmosphere with several public parks surrounding the residential and commercial core that will make it easy to keep up an active lifestyle.
The Lions Gate Bridge on Highway 99 is the main connection to Downtown Vancouver, while the SeaBus ferry service at the Lonsdale Quay offers a pedestrian-only alternative to get across the harbour.
