Westside Apartments is located in the City of North Vancouver’s popular Central Lonsdale neighbourhood, a half-block west of Lonsdale Avenue, which is the major north-south traffic artery joining the Lonsdale Quay (SeaBus Terminal) to the Upper Levels Highway.

The neighbourhood is considered an excellent multi-family location due to its proximity to transportation and local amenities along the Lonsdale corridor only a half-block away.   A few minutes’ walk to a full range of shopping, recreation, theatre, entertainment facilities, trendy cafes and restaurants.  The Police Administration Building, City Hall, Public Library, Lions Gate Hospital and other government services are steps away reinforcing its central location.  With significant residential development occurring, the livability of the area has greatly improved and has become one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in the North Shore.
