Mount Pleasant Vancouver West

 

Historic clock in Mount Pleasant
 

Mount Pleasant is one of the few neighbourhoods in Vancouver that span the city’s east-west divide. That’s why Mount Pleasant house prices range from less than $800,000 east of Main Street to almost $1.3 million closer to Cambie Street.

In recent years Mount Pleasant gentrified, especially in its SoMa (South Main) district. The area was once a hangout for artsy types, but now many first-time homeowners, including young professionals, couples and families, are heading to Mount Pleasant to buy their first house or condo and take advantage of the area’s laid-back lifestyle.

Mount Pleasant is also home to several important city landmarks. Vancouver City Hall dominates the corner of Cambie Street and 12th Avenue; Heritage Hall — opened in 1915 as a post office — sits at Main Street and 15th Avenue and serves as a community meeting place; and, at the heart of the neighbourhood stands the former Evangelistic Tabernacle, which was converted into private condominiums in the 1990s.
