Strategically situated within the boundaries of 4th Street, Chesterfield Avenue, St. Georges Avenue and the North Shore waterfront, Lower Lonsdale is both a tremendous location and a gateway to the Lower Mainland and Greater Vancouver region.

With views, ranging from North shore mountains, the Lions Gate Bridge, across the inlet to Vancouver’s beautiful city skyline, and
east to Burnaby, there is no question as to why this community is fast becoming one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the Greater Vancouver. It may also help explain the escalating condo prices.

Buildings such as the Time and One Park Lane developments on the south and north sides of W 1st Street, are only a few of this areas recent additions. In fact, over the next two to four years, a total of 1,600 to 1,700 new residential units are expected to bring approximately 5,000 people into the Lower Lonsdale area. Inclusive, is the City’s revitalization project of the waterfront area north and south of Esplanade, creating a signature destination for new residents and visitors. The planned shipyard waterfront pier and walkways planned as part of this project, will offer both a public promenade as well as adjoining moorage opportunities for leisure boats and ocean-bound visiting ships.

Among these future developments, expect amazing amenities, high end interiors, local features and of course
highly priced real estate.
