This August, the best place to rent an apartment in Olympic Village opened its doors for applicants and can get you to the front of the line.

At a prime location on Wylie Street just of West 2nd Avenue, W2 Living has move-in ready studios, one, two, and three-bedroom rentals. The modern suites are steps from the False Creek seawall and share a rooftop terrace with a community garden, striking a perfect balance for Vancouverites.

Additionally, the building is professionally managed by Promont, a community-focused company. They provide 24/7 concierge services and residents have access to the tenant’s portal online to store and streamline communications.

Let’s take an inside look at W2 Living now and see what makes it the best place to live in Vancouver’s Olympic Village area:

Location: Olympic Village

Vancouver’s Olympic Village neighbourhood is at the intersection of the best in the city — minutes from Downtown and adjacent to some of the trendiest areas.

Curled up along the south waterfront of False Creek, it’s the seawall, plentiful green space, amenities, and excellent public transit that make this area highly covetable for renters.

Before, the area was used for industry. Today, after the 2010 Winter Olympics and years of development it’s a thriving community.

W2 Living is right by the Cambie Street Bridge and Olympic Village Canada Line Station. This is the neighbourhood’s western border, which stretches to approximately Quebec or Main Street to the East.

Building amenities

Before you submit a rental application anywhere, it’s a good idea to check out what kind of amenities are available so you know what you’re getting for rent beyond just your suite.

W2 Living has both in-suite and building amenities that elevate city life. Here’s a quick overview of the highlights:

How to apply

You can apply for an apartment at W2 Living online or in-app right now through the platform. In fact, if you pre-submit your application early or even before you go to an open house, you’ll stand out from the competition.

In a tight market, rental suites can receive dozens (and sometimes hundreds) of inquiries. So, if you find a place you know would be a great fit for you, it’s a good idea to apply early.

Not only will it expedite your rental process, but there’s also no commitment involved and you can always withdraw your application later if you decide that it’s not the right fit for you.
