Yaletown got its name when many of the residents of the town of Yale, some 240 kilometers east of Vancouver relocated. Yale had been the center of the Fraser Valley gold rush and also home to the Canadian Pacific Railroad’s shops. When the railway was extended to Vancouver, the CPR moved its shops and yards to the north shore of False Creek and the Yale based workers followed. Springing up around the rail yards and buildings were numerous factories and warehouses, some of which survive today.

 

The trendy Yaletown neighbourhood in the south east corner of Downtown Vancouver is bordered by False Creek, Robson Street, and Homer Street. Once a heavy industrial area dominated by warehouses and rail yards, extensive development since Expo 86 has transformed the area into one of the most densely populated neighbourhoods in the city. The marinas, parks, high rise apartment blocks, and converted heritage buildings constitute one of the most significant urban regeneration projects in North America.

 

The city's new zoning plans helped the process of rejuvenation by establishing objectives of improving livability and called for office space within Yaletown, as well as preserving its heritage structures. There are sizeable areas that were set aside for parks, waterfront access, community centres, and schools. The Stanley Park Seawall linear park has been continued through the area along the shore of False Creek, forming its southern boundary.

 

This mixed-use community has become a fashionable area in which to live. Higher density living is possible through tall condominium complexes. Along with new buildings springing up since the Expo ’86 days, many of the heritage buildings within Yaletown have been converted to modern luxury condo living.
