BC Place

BC Place

If Canada Place transformed Vancouver’s look the most out of all the legacy landmarks left behind by Expo 86, then BC Place is a close second. It opened in 1983, has a capacity of 54,500, and is home to two of Vancouver’s professional sports teams: the BC Lions and the Vancouver Whitecaps. BC Place was also the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2010 Olympics. After the Olympics, it got a new roof. It is the largest cable-supported retractable roof in the world and ― in my opinion ― gives BC Place a much-needed update to the marshmallow look it had before.
