Targeted Hyper Local Advertising

Gastown.ca is a hyper-local community based website focusing on the historic neighbourhood of Gastown. Vancouver’s first downtown core has seen a resurgence over the last 5 years and is now one of the cities most desirable neighbourhoods in which to live work and shop. A handful of heritage buildings have been converted into boutique open concept and live/work dwellings reminiscent of hip boroughs of Manhattan.

With an increase in funky urban dwellings the retail and restaurant scene has also changed in Gastown. It’s not just along Water Street where you’ll find great shopping. Gastown is one of those ultra-hip places where you will find guerrilla and one-stop pop-up stores in some of the most unusual places. In fact, Salt Tasting Room and Judas Goat Taberna, two of Gastown’s top foodie destinations, reside in Blood Alley between Carrall and Abbott. There is excitement at every turn in Gastown.

Gastown.ca is dedicated to showcasing the uniqueness of the neighbourhood and highlighting the businesses and entrepreneurs who make this such a diverse and vibrant part of the city to live, work and play.
