Coal Harbour

Neighbourhood in Vancouver, BC

Coal Harbour Neighbourhood Vancouver

Coal Harbour is situated in an idyllic cove adjacent to the business district of downtown Vancouver on one side and Stanley Park on the other. With unmatched views of the Burrard Inlet and the North Shore mountains beyond, it’s no wonder a new crop of condominiums has arisen over the last two decades to take advantage of the vistas and the thriving community...

When Captain George Vancouver explored the BC coast in the early 1790s, he spotted a seam of coal in what is today, (predictably) Coal Harbour. The seam ran some distance along Burrard Inlet, and was slated for mining. However, it was abandoned soon after when the coal was found to be of very low quality. A blessing for the future of Coal Harbour, since an open mine would certainly not have resulted in the Golden Triangle of real estate in the area today.

 

Later, in the early 1860s, the Stanley Park peninsula was designated a military reserve as it was considered a strategic point from which to repel any attempted invasion by the Americans. Of course, no invasion came, but by being designated a military reserve, the land was spared from development. In 1886, the Dominion Government of Canada was petitioned by Vancouver's City Council to lease the reserve as a park.

 

So today, we have Coal Harbour situated in an idyllic cove adjacent to the business district of downtown Vancouver on one side and perhaps the second most famous urban park in North America, Stanley Park. (Central Park in New York City might be better known internationally)

 

With unmatched views of the Burrard Inlet and the North Shore mountains beyond, it’s no wonder a new crop of condominiums has arisen over the last two decades to take advantage of the vistas and the thriving community.
