Named after coal was discovered in the harbour in the 1860’s, Vancouver’s Coal Harbour is now home to upscale high-rise condominiums, hotels, luxury townhouses, and business towers.
Properties in Coal Harbour are typically more expensive than other condos in Vancouver. This can be attributed to the fact that these condos are new and located in a prime area in Downtown, and many have panoramic views of Stanley Park, the North Shore Mountains, and the Burrard Inlet.
