Mount Pleasant Homes and Condos for Sale Vancouver Real Estate
Mount Pleasant is one of Vancouver’s up-and-coming neighbourhoods! Beginning where Yaletown leaves off near Terminal and Main, the neighbourhood extends up Main Street to Kingsway and 16th Avenue. Main Street, especially where it intersects with Broadway, has undergone a great deal of change and new shops and restaurants are opening along this lively corridor. Mount Pleasant’s convenient location to downtown Vancouver assures its continued rejuvenation.
Quality condominium developments similar to those found on the Fairview slopes are becoming part of the streetscape north of Broadway, and many units offer terrific views of the city, False Creek, and the North Shore mountains. Mount Pleasant offers an excellent opportunity for first time home-buyers to access the real estate market through a condo purchase or ½ duplex. Because Mount Pleasant is an older Vancouver neighbourhood, there are numerous homes of substantial size which have been remodeled into multiple suites and these also provide avenues for entry-level homeownership. Some established single family homes have been refurbished with beautiful results; these represent the costliest real estate in the area.
In addition to Mount Pleasant’s handy location to downtown Vancouver, it also benefits from having the 99 B-line rapid transit buses run from the Commercial Drive skytrain station right out to UBC via Broadway. The Canada Line has a skytrain station at Cambie and West Broadway which provides commuters quick access to downtown as well as out to the airport and Richmond. Mount Pleasant is fast becoming one of Vancouver’s new ‘happening’ hubs, and there has never been a better time to own a stake in this dynamic community!
