Condo Living in Kensington-Cedar Cottage
Known for its ethnic diversity, this East Side Vancouver neighbourhood attracts mostly young professionals and first-time buyers. The mixed demographic creates a thriving cultural blend of neighbourhood businesses, resident artists, and community activity with a strong Chinese and Vietnamese pulse. It has recently been the site for a number of new Vancouver condos like Kensington Gardens, The Gem, and Charm Condos, and is certainly a neighbourhood to watch.
The Kensington-Cedar Cottage neighbourhood has a lot to offer both in terms of entertainment and daily life and leisure. There are many delicious restaurants such as Little Saigon’s Kim Châu Delicatessen for the best Vietnamese subs in the neighbourhood, Cedar Cottage coffee shop and Marche are the go-to for a strong morning coffee, and Dai Tung boasts great Chinese seafood cuisine. John Hendry Park is a great place to wander through or have a picnic in the afternoon, and the annual Dickens Community Multicultural Festival brings the neighbourhood together with music and celebrations.
