Yaletown Homes and Condos for Sale – Yaletown Vancouver Real Estate
Yaletown meets up with the West End at the downtown end of the Granville Street Bridge and follows the waterfront along Pacific Boulevard to Smithe Street. Originally an industrial area of warehouses at the terminus of the CPR, the area is now a vibrant community of just over 10,000 people.
Expo ’86 was the impetus for planned development in this area, and the results have been phenomenal. Old warehouses have been refurbished into heritage condominiums with first floor retail. Landmark high-rises designed by some of Vancouver’s most esteemed architects provided the opportunities to integrate all the best of new design and building technologies into modern architectural masterpieces. The area has a vital blend of leading edge retail, restaurants and urban markets.
The seawall from Coal Harbour at the entrance to Stanley Park continues along False Creek through this area, and passes by beautiful community greenspaces such as Cooper’s Park and Helmcken Park. The Roundhouse Community Centre, now a provincial heritage site, is a neighbourhood focal point. Real estate includes high-rise penthouses with private entrances, enhanced security and 24-hour concierge services. The panoramic views from these majestic buildings are nothing short of breathtaking.
A wide variety of quality condominiums are available in the highrise developments, but also in lower-level refurbished heritage buildings which have maintained the historical character of the original area. Yaletown is definitely an urban renewal success story, and offers exciting city living on gorgeous False Creek in downtown Vancouver.
