COLLINGWOOD HOUSES

Collingwood is rich in history and culturally diverse

ABOUT COLLINGWOOD HOUSES

Collingwood is a fairly large, east Vancouver neighbourhood the borders Renfrew Heights and the city district of Burnaby, with East 29th Avenue to the north, Nanaimo Street to the west, East 41st Avenue to the south and Boundary Road to the east. As one of the earliest communities developed in Vancouver, Collingwood is rich in history and culturally diverse, which is reflected in the businesses in the area along with a few remaining heritage homes.

The Livability of Collingwood

Sitting on just over 4 km of residential and commercial land, Collingwood is a thriving part of Vancouver’s culture and has grown year after year in population size, as well as the uprising of residences too.

With easy access to public transit and main throughways surrounding Collingwood, getting into Vancouver or out to other outlying communities is a convenience this community comes stock with.

In addition, shopping at Metrotown – one of the biggest malls in Canada, is in close proximity to the area, as are schools, various ethnic and western cuisines, all of which come together to make the far-flung Vancouver neighbourhood of Collingwood, an excellent real estate investment opportunity.

The History of Collingwood

Collingwood was mainly a barren landscape until Colonel Richard Moody showed up in 1861, constructing a military route that extended through a First Nations parcel of land, all the way to English Bay to the west and New Westminster to the north.

Then, in 1878, George Wales settled in the area, building up the region and making it an accessible community for those looking to call Collingwood home.

The Future of Collingwood

Since this time, well over a century ago, Collingwood has become a thriving region of Vancouver, with the vast majority of construction being new developments including: high-rises, townhouses and single-family homes – built up from the late 90s straight through until present day.

Considered a more affordable region in which to invest in real estate in Vancouver, Collingwood is a chosen marketplace for first-time homebuyers, families and single professionals alike.
