YALETOWN

A sought after neighbourhood bordering the sea wall, with trendy restaurants and lounges at your doorstep.

ABOUT YALETOWN

Yaletown is known for trendy eateries boasting of local ingredients prepared by renowned chefs, thriving nightlife filled with lounges and craft brew houses, and eloquent living quarters surrounded by boutique shops. Which is why it is no wonder Yaletown is one of the best places to live in Vancouver! With oceanfront seawall accessibility, and mountain range scenery, Yaletown truly delivers an explosion of all the “see’s and do’s” the Lower Mainland is well known for, and is one of the many reasons it is such a highly coveted and endlessly booming real estate hub.

Yaletown was named after the town of Yale, which is located just past Hope near the Fraser Canyon. From this town of Yale, Canadian Pacific Railway workers were sent to our modern day Yaletown, in order to work on the railway. As home to the Canadian Pacific Railway, dating all the way back to 1886, the importance and true tale of the historic train terminus can be found at the Roundhouse Community Centre, where historic information about the transcontinental passenger train – Engine 374 – can be uncovered. A great place to take the kids, or a creative first date option. 

The accessibility to coffee shops for your morning brew such as The Small Victory Bakery, or year-round café patios and brick courtyards such as Brix for a quick bite to eat over lunch, or a gathering with friends at the local Yaletown Brewing Company, are just some of Yaletown’s convenient dining and drinking options.

Yaletown condos are often compact, singular dwellings, so hosting the family for the holidays might not always be feasible within your own space. However, the local OPUS Hotel offers ideal accommodations for any out of town guests, and has been voted one of the world’s Top 100 Hotels by readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine.

DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER NEIGHBOURHOODS

The Downtown core of Vancouver provides a diverse range of neighbourhoods in which to call home. Whether you are interested in a picturesque view of the Burrard Inlet on the north side of Vancouver, or like the idea of the breezy lifestyle along the Beach District to the south, or prefer the quaint community of False Creek, the hustle and bustle of upscale Yaletown, the historic elegance of Gastown, or the cultural east side of Vancouver’s Chinatown or Crosstown – the options are limitless. Not to mention the welcoming West End, stunning Stanley Park and the quiet opulence of Coal Harbour …each of these neighbourhoods are what makes Downtown Vancouver such an appealing place to live year round!

DISTINCT AND BUSTLING COMMUNITIES

Yaletown is surrounded by some of Vancouver’s most distinct and bustling communities, including: the shopping district of Robson Street, the bordering community of Coal Harbour, and the quickly growing Olympic Village of False Creek …among others. If you’re coming into Yaletown from any other part of the city or outlying areas, the Canada Line Station is the easiest way to connect. In addition, getting out of Yaletown and over to False Creek or Granville Island is both doable and pleasurable on an Aquabus or False Creek Ferry water taxi.

HOME IN THE CORE OF VANCOVUER

Whether you live in, or simply work there, the area is shrouded in live/work brick warehouse style offices, giving it an old-world feel that is inspired by modern conveniences.

With David Lam Park at your doorstep, and the seawall a jog away from any Yaletown condo, this city dwelling offers so much outdoor space, you will never feel as though you are living in a typical concrete jungle that a lot of city dwelling might lend themselves to.

Clearly, there is no end to the bragging rights of Yaletown, so if you are looking for a home in the core of Vancouver – considering this location is well worth your time. Allow me to take you on a tour, and show you why I am so proud to call this community home!
