closeVancouver is a very young city; it wasn't until after the World Exposition in 1986 before Vancouver changed from a sleepy provincial city to a booming metropolis.
Even today the city continues to expand at a high rate: once abandoned industrial areas have thus turned into fashionable and lively districts such as Yaletown and Coal Harbour.

UBC Botanical Garden, Vancouver
The collection of the university's diverse botanical garden was originally created in the early 20th century as part of a survey of plants in British Columbia.

In the 1980s this area was a rather desolate industrial site. After a developer purchased the site it was transformed into a hip residential and commercial area.
Wall Centre, Vancouver
Wall Centre is a complex of three high-rise buildings, of which the highest held the title of Vancouver's tallest building for seven years until 2008, when it was eclipsed by the Shangri-La tower.
