At 5,335 people per km2 (13,817.6 people per mi2) in 2006, Vancouver is the fourth most densely populated major city in North America, after New York City, San Francisco and Mexico City. Urban planning in Vancouver is characterized by high-rise residential and mixed-use development in urban centres, as an alternative to sprawl.[54] This has been credited[by whom?] in contributing to the city's high rankings in livability.

The success of these dense but livable neighbourhoods led to the redevelopment of urban industrial sites, such as North False Creek and Coal Harbour, beginning in the mid-1980s. The result is a compact urban core that has gained international recognition for its "high amenity and 'livable' development."[56] More recently, the city has been debating "ecodensity"óways in which "density, design, and land use can contribute to environmental sustainability, affordability, and livability
