West End Homes and Condos for Sale – West End Real Estate
The West End neighbourhood of Vancouver is well known for its high-rise residential buildings and close proximity to Stanley Park and the popular beach at English Bay. But what isn’t always as well known is that it is also home to three schools and many families with children! Traffic calming patterns have created many quiet residential streets and the West End is home to numerous old landmark buildings like the Sylvia Hotel.
Nudging up against Vancouver’s commercial and financial district, the West End covers the area from Stanley Park to Burrard Street south of W. Georgia Street. Robson Street, with its upscale boutiques, restaurants and numerous coffee shops is an excellent spot for shopping and people watching. Davie Street runs parallel to Robson, and hosts many interesting shops and services as well. The Vancouver Aquatic Centre anchors Beach Drive at the Burrard Street end, and the West End Community Centre on Denman provides a range of activities, including a library.
There are few traditional single family homes in the West End, but many more family friendly condominium developments. Bachelor and one-bedroom units for sale provide excellent opportunities for first time home-buyers or investors to enter the real estate market. Bookended by Stanley Park at one end, and Vancouver’s downtown core at the other, the West End is a dynamic environment from which to enjoy an ideal west coast lifestyle!
