Oh, how far Coal Harbour has gotten from its unassuming industrial waterfront starting point. It’s hard to believe that it’s merely been a short fifteen years since this residential community was first conceived as a possible addition to the Burrard Inlet. Conveniently situated just blocks from the wonderful shopping opportunities on Vancouver Business Districts’ Denman and Robson Streets, and equally close to Downtown Vancouver’s beautiful Evergreen Oasis at Stanley Park, Coal Harbour condos and beautiful townhouses provide an idyllic location for any lifestyle.
In its short fifteen years of existence, this humble Coal harbour real estate community, complete with 23 acres, has turned into the pinnacle of urban communities, and is constantly improving. Just in 2009, for example, Vancouver opened up a luxurious Shangri-la Zen hotel, setting the bar at 61 stories, and plans are already being made for further highrise condos! Also, just in time for the 2010 Winter Olympic games, work has already started on the new convention centre.
Aching for a relaxing evening in the crisp North air? Why not take a walk through Burrard Inlet’s waterfront park? With eight acres along the seawall, and stellar views of the Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park, and the North Shore Mountains for background, grab yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy the quiet calm of the fresh outdoors. Or cross the Bridge from the North Shore to head Downtown for some more excitement.
At Coal Harbour, you have it all at your fingertips; Vancouver condos Downtown excitement or quiet evening strolls at your convenience. It’s true, you won’t be the only one wanting to enjoy these sites, and traffic might be heavy at times; and it can be hard to tell where commercial districts end and the neighborhood starts. But at Coal Harbour, the view is beautiful no matter what direction you choose to look.
