Strathcona

Strathcona is Vancouver’s oldest community and is currently undergoing an exciting revitalization. The area is loosely bordered by the Burrard Inlet, False Creek, historic Chinatown. It is home to the first school of Vancouver, the Hastings Sawmill School.

Many homes in the neighbourhood are 19th and 20th century heritage housing, making it a prime area for young families who are looking to purchase and restore these homes. Because of the architectural history of these homes, many of them have been granted the honour of “heritage” housing.

Row homes were the flavour of the time, and many of them are getting a new life via restoration. Also, the recent gentrification of the neighbourhood has meant an influx of many mid- to high-rises popping up in the area, with prices much more affordable than neighbouring communities, such as Yaletown.

The area is also well-known for up and coming restaurants as well as some amazing coffee hot spots. See below for details.
