Whistler Village is a master planned town centre designed as a pedestrian-oriented environment for people’s comfort, convenience, interest and experience.
This original design has endured, establishing the foundation for a unique identity that has truly set Whistler apart. While a natural desire exists to preserve and protect this Village “gem”, there is recognition that ongoing rejuvenation, revitalization and evolution is needed in order to remain vital and alive and continue to be competitive in the destination resort market.
The elements of the character, quality and identity of Whistler Village which help to make it a unique and special place requires coordinated site planning, architecture and landscaping.
