Novare is situated on the northwest corner of Carnarvon Street and Sixth Street in historic Downtown New Westminster, BC. Columbia Street, two blocks south, is the main commercial/retail corridor in the Downtown area and offers numerous amenities, shopping, coffee shops and restaurants. Many of the older buildings in close proximity to the subject have undergone extensive revitalisation recently. Substantial new developments have taken place over the years with high-rise condominium projects situated in the downtown core, mostly very close to the Skytrain stations. Notable location highlights include Douglas College, the Anvil Centre, the Law Courts, City Hall and the waterfront Westminster Pier Park.
