Condo Living in Renfrew-Collingwood
This expansive East Side neighbourhood has been recognized as one of the fastest growing residential areas in Vancouver. It is a changing landscape of older single-family homes and new, modern townhouse developments interspersed with wooded areas, walking trails, and footbridges. Located just a short walk from Vancouver’s Central Park, the overall atmosphere of the neighbourhood is quiet residential with some new Vancouver condos like 8 on Chambers, 2719 Ward Street and Joyce springing up.
Situated in the heart of the neighbourhood, Renfrew Ravine Park is a great place to spend a day with its annual Moon Festival and ‘Uncover Your Creeks’ initiative.
There are many boutique stores within the neighbourhood like Purdy’s Chocolate Factory, Safeway, and Harvey’s Appliances, as well as the local’s hotspots La Piazza Dario and Panaderia Latina Bakery. With two public libraries, a community centre and public swimming pool, plus many parks with playgrounds and sports fields, it has a lot going on to keep East End residents happy while at home. But it’s not far to go along Kingsway to reach popular Vancouver destinations like Mount Pleasant, Downtown, and Granville Island.
Living in a Renfrew-Collingwood condo is ideal for public transit-users, with the SkyTrain’s Millenium Line connecting Renfrew and Rupert stations to the neighbourhood. Several bus routes also run through the area, making your daily commute stress-free. If you are driving, Grandview highway, Kingsway, and Boundary Road bring you anywhere you want.
