A waterfront community in the northern part of Vancouver’s Downtown, Coal Harbour is known for its calm urban atmosphere of modern Vancouver condos. Stretching from Canada Place across the harbour to Stanley Park, the neighbourhood offers a nice natural balance to the bustle of the West End and Gastown, while still providing a thriving mix of business, recreation, and leisurely attractions. Since the 1990s, the number of Coal Harbour condos for sale has gone up and up, as high-rise developments overlooking the water have become part of the neighbourhood’s character.
Coal Harbour enjoys a prime spot both as a Downtown community and a kind of natural getaway. Living right on the waterfront, the cool sea breeze and the sounds of ships entering the harbour will be your wake up call. You’ll find coffee shops and restaurants to order your regular, as well as exciting attractions such as the Vancouver Convention Centre and the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre. Sitting on top of Downtown and neighbouring Stanley Park, the list of things to do is endless. Spend the afternoon cycling around the sea wall, picnic in the park, then head over to Downtown Eastside for dinner, and finish it off with some dancing in Gastown.
The condos in Coal Harbour are well connected with urban transit services from bus routes to the SkyTrain lines into Downtown and the Mainland. For drivers, two main bridges give access to the mainland, while Highway 99 can take you north and south throughout the city.
