The River District is East Vancouver's newest neighbourhood to be reinvented. The City of Vancouver recently approved a massive 126-acre master plan community that will blend with the current landscape of condominiums, townhomes and single-family homes.
Commercial Drive, once known as bohemian and a place for those not wanting to conform to the downtown grind, has grown into an eclectic mix of people from all walks of life. Some of East Vancouver’s best restaurants, bars, coffee shops and independent ethnic grocery stores can be found along The Drive.
Main Street is one of East Vancouver’s newest pockets to rise up, offering residents trendy shops, independently owned restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Local schools and parks boast reputations of being some of the safest and progressive in the province.
Mount Pleasant is almost part of downtown, but just far enough to rightfully be distinguish as it’s own community. Some of British Columbia's most inventive and creative architects have brought to life residences with a personality, defining this area with its own trendy edge.
Joyce / Collingwood boasts great schools and great parks. Residents enjoy the best of both worlds having downtown Vancouver minutes away, and amenities of Burnaby's Metrotown just around the corner.
