We walked and cycled through Yaletown which has quite a few apartment blocks surrounded by gardens and views of the water. The streets are treelined. There are some nice restaurants.
Yaletown managed to avoid most of the high rise apartments and has transformed an old warehouse district into eclectic bars and restaurants. A great place for lunch, especially The Flying Pig - great "steak sandwich" recreation.
Went through on a Sunday afternoon expecting lots of shops etc... not happening. Better places in town abound. This is evidently fine for eating but anything else... forget it.
We lived in the Yaletown area of Vancouver just as the area was growing and morphing into the cool, hip place to be, with restaurants, shops & boutiques.

As a tourist, I was told this is the SoHo of Vancouver ... well if you've actually been to SoHo you'll be very disappointed. Shops are... More
We easily walked to Yaletown from our Downtown hotel for dinner. There were so many choices but we found out that the good restaurants required reservations or a good long wait even on a Monday night. Next time we may return during the day for shopping.
