The hip & trendy
warehouse district

Yaletown is Vancouver’s trendy and upscale renovated warehouse district. This fresh urban neighbourhood is just an easy walk from the centre of downtown Vancouver or a quick ferry ride from Granville Island. Yaletown’s converted heritage buildings are home to some of city’s top fashion and design shops, as well as cutting edge restaurants and bars. Old loading docks act as giant sidewalks and create a unique setting for wandering, shopping, or lounging at one of the many outdoor patios.

Once an industrial centre, Yaletown has developed into one of the city’s trendiest and most thriving communities. Named after the gold rush town of Yale whose residents moved into that part of Vancouver once the Canadian Pacific Railway extended from their home to the city, Yaletown became run down by the late 20th Century. After Expo ’86, however, the potential for development in the area became clear, and it was purchased by a Honk Kong investor.

Almost a quarter-century later, one can easily see how that investment has paid off. Hamilton and Mainland Streets have maintained their historical charm, with refurbished heritage buildings – most of which were once warehouses – converted into lofts, offices, restaurants and shops. New properties have grown up around this central area, and Yaletown now consist of apartment buildings housing modern condos with fantastic views and amenities.

Who lives in Yaletown

The Yaletown population has grown considerably in the last decade, and consists primarily of young professionals in their late 20s to late 30s. Although there are significantly fewer children in Yaletown than Metro Vancouver as a whole, many young families choose to stay in the area until the time comes to purchase a larger home. Artists and sales and service people also populate the neighbourhood. While Yaletown became renowned for multimedia offices during the dot com boom, it now houses a broader array of businesses and its population reflects this.

Things to Do in Yaletown

Mainland, Hamilton and Homer Streets are replete with hair and nail salons, boutique clothing and gift stores, lifestyle and home furnishing stores, restaurants, and lounges. Check out Blo Blow Dry Bar or Bombay Brows for some pampering, or Atomic Model for a selection of original clothing. Fine Finds also features clothing and accessories by local and international designers, and a selection of gifts that rivals that of Beauty Mark down the street. For vintage finds, stop by Retro Rock Vintage Clothing on Davie and Seymour, arguably one of the best vintage stores within the downtown area. Urban Fare, Choices Market and Nester’s Market serve the community with a large variety of grocery options, from gourmet to organic to locally grown products.

Yaletown real estate

Yaletown showcases some of the best properties Vancouver real estate has to offer. The new developments promise elegant, modern design, fantastic amenities, and great views. Yaletown condos are on average relatively small, however, and prices can be higher than most other Vancouver real estate of similar proportions. Properties such as the Grace on Richards St. embody the style and sophistication of Yaletown real estate, boasting an indoor/outdoor pool, biometric fingerprint security, and suites featuring granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and limestone tile floors.
