Introducing Yaletown

false creek viewYaletown is the heart of Vancouver’s trend-setting neighborhood reminiscent of New York’s Soho. In the early 20th century, Yaletown was Vancouver’s warehouse district. This is evident today in the historic warehouses that line the streets along Hamilton and Mainland St which still hold there old world charm with exposed bricks and beams. Along Homer Street you will also find several sought-after condominium buildings such as The Beasely, Dous, Bentley, 1180 Homer, Ellison, 1241 Homer, and H&H.

Yaletown received its name in the 19th century when the Canadian Pacific Railroad moved its rail yards and repair facilities from Yale, in the Fraser River canyon, to the new Yaletown in Vancouver and the name stuck. Canadian Pacific built a roundhouse in the area; which is still in use today as the Roundhouse Community Centre, at the corner of Pacific and Drake. It features the famous Centennial Steam train, which is an important part of our Canadian history. This was the first train to cross Canada upon completion of the railroad.

Home to a variety of successful businesses including fashionable boutiques, pet outfitters, architectural firms, galleries, hair studios, and designer furniture stores. Yaletown is world renowned for its variety of gourmet restaurants including: Glowball, The Opus Hotel/Elixir lounge, Goldfish, Coast, Pinky’s, Cactus club, Yaletown Brewery, Tequila Kitchen and many others. Along Hamilton Street, among many wonderful establishments, you will find the stylish residential buildings such as New Yorker and Alda.

Yaletown is a very desirable area for young professional Vancouverites to work, live and play. Self contained within a small radius of only a few city blocks it is a fabulous part of the Vancouver community.

The western end of Yaletown is sometimes referred to as False Creek North. Situated along the seawall, many of the buildings have fabulous south facing water views overlooking False Creek, Parks and Granville Island.

This area of Yaletown is located between the bridges,  just east of the Granville Street bridge along the seawall to the Cambie Bridge. Starting along Beach Crescent you will find many very beautiful and desirable buildings such as the Icon I and Icon II. Parks and green space line the seawall where locals and visitors bike, rollerblade, and walk their dogs. Richards Street comes to an end at Beach Crescent, here you will find Azura I and II, along with Parkwest I and II. These buildings feature some of the best facilities in Vancouver at, Club Viva, with its 80 ft lap pool, state of the art fitness centre and squash courts.

Further along Beach Crescent the Strathmore Mews, located along street level are sought-after townhouses. Next we come to Kings Landing, located right along the waterfront walk. At the point of Beach Crescent, currently under construction, is the new development project, The Erickson. designed by world famous architect Arthur Erickson. Once completed it will be a beautiful twisting glass structure.
The Roundhouse Community Centre and the Elsie Roy Elementary school are located along David Lam Park. A few blocks east we come to The Quayside Marina and Marinaside Crescent. This is a beautiful waterfront community situated along the seawall surrounded by the Marina. This high end waterfront community is home to many beautiful high rise properties including Aquarius, Boathouse Mews, Quayside Resort, Crestmark, The Mariner and Columbus.

Those who choose to call this area home do so for a variety of lifestyle reasons including; close proximity to entertainment, restaurants, shopping, fitness and outdoor recreation. Many overseas investors find this area particularly appealing for a second home or an investment property.
