Home of the trendy and well heeled!
Yaletown Heritage District is a tiny six-block section of the Downtown core, which until the late 1980’s was home to deserted warehouses and storage facilities for the fashion industry. In the decade that followed it was transformed into “”the place to be and be seen”” in Vancouver. Top restaurants, thriving nightlife, lofty architecture and its proximity to BC Place, Gm Place, and the Granville strip propelled this lowly corner to stardom. In recent years, many of Vancouver’s most prominent sports and entertainment figures have chosen Yaletown as their home. Mainland and Hamilton are the streets to walk to soak up the flavours of Yaletown. Both by day and night there is a flavour here which sets it apart from its neighbours and is reminiscent of Seattle or even New York.
Beyond the Heritage District itself, many of the residents in the surrounding blocks also consider themselves a part of Yaletown. And when you search on MLS under Yaletown the results will also include the area covered on this site as False Creek North. We have chosen to separate the two here as they have such different things to offer, especially as a potential real estate buyer/investor.
