Living in Coal Harbour

Coal Harbour stretches along the waterfront from Denman to Burrard, and from the north side of Georgia to the Inlet. In this small geographical area are over 40 condominium towers, many townhouses and low-rise buildings, along with a few single-family dwellings, all interspersed with a great number and variety of businesses and services. Our marinas, beautiful parks, Seawall, and magnificent views of the harbour, North Shore, and Stanley Park are unparalleled. When looking out into our busy harbour, there is always something to watch: cruise ships, tugs and pleasure craft, floatplanes, tankers and container ships, sea buses, fire-boat, Canadian Navy vessels, athletic rowers in training. On the Seawall one can stroll and sightsee, rollerblade, bicycle, jog or run, stop at one of the many sidewalk cafes, or explore the shops. We host Vancouver locals and visitors from all over the world. From Coal Harbour, the entire downtown area is within walking distance, and if one does not choose to walk, buses and taxis are plentiful. Coal Harbour is a newly developed area of Vancouver, pre-planned according to the City’s Official Development Plan, with careful detail to preserve view corridors, and to make a viable, beautiful residential neighbourhood from a former industrial area. It is a mixed neighbourhood with two co-op buildings, market and non-market housing, and some very high-end suites. Of note is The Performing Arts Lodge (PAL), a non-profit society for retired people from the arts community, and has a wonderful theatre always booked for the many productions and events held there. The Coal Harbour Community Centre is an integral part of the neighbourhood, too, with a wide variety of programs and activities for all ages.
