True Liveability Where East Meets West.

Quirky, affordable and extremely liveable – these are but a few of the advantages to becoming a resident of Mount Pleasant East. Discover the Eastside’s hidden gem.


Schools

This Eastside neighbourhood was originally one of large single-family detached homes, and as such, there is a plethora of educational institutions in and around the area. Lord Strathcona Elementary is one of the earliest schools in Vancouver – it was founded in 1891.This iconic structure is now attached to a community centre and a library for further community engagement.

Admiral Seymour Elementary, Nightingale Elementary and Fraser Elementary offer a wide variety of elementary school choices. For Secondary school students, there are excellent options just over the neighbourhood’s boundaries marking the Mount Pleasant East area. Sir Charles Tupper Secondary is situated just across the southern border, while Templeton Secondary and Vancouver Technical are just to the east. St. Francis Xavier, St. Patrick’s Elementary and St. Patrick’s Secondary are three of the esteemed private schools in the immediate area. For post-secondary students, there is Vancouver Community College and the Great Northern Way Campus which is a joint project involving UBC, SFU, Emily Carr School of Art and Design and BCIT. This unusual association of educational entities has been created for the purpose of becoming a “centre of convergence for arts and culture, digital media and the environment”. It seems fitting for such a revolutionary concept to take root in Mount Pleasant East, given its eclectic personality.


Location

The northern boundary of this neighbourhood runs along the False Creek waterfront from the western border of Ontario Street east to Main Street, then heading south Main Street down to Great Northern Way over to Clark Drive its Eastern border. The neighbourhood is completed with its southern border of East 16th Avenue.


…artistic retail outlets and superior restaurant choices, all seasoned with a little bit of SoMa flavour

Housing & History

Mount Pleasant East has traditionally been an eclectic mix of large, post-1946, detached homes on single lots (with a number of these having recently been converted to multi-unit dwellings), low-rise buildings and some condo complexes. With the strong growth in the neighbourhood, there has been a surge of multi-story, strata-titled buildings with higher-end condos and lofts. Mount Pleasant East was historically inhabited by the artistic community, but has more recently become the choice of young, professional singles and families. As a result of its quirky/artistic reputation, the neighbourhood also attracts a very “hip” crowd that adds to the neighbourhood’s unique personality.


Recreation

Green space is plentiful in Mount Pleasant East. There are park spaces such as Tea Swamp Park, located at East 15th and Sophia. This small yet beautiful park features a community garden, a beautiful arbour, a picturesque stream and a curving pathway down to the playground. It owes its oddball name both to the tea plants that used to grow in abundance here but also to the history of it being the site of a large swamp that used to be at the headwaters of Brewery Creek – one of Vancouver’s original streams.

Jonathan Rogers Park, located at East 7th and Manitoba, offers nearby residents and business workers 1.40 hectares of playing fields, a field house, a community garden and stunning views of downtown Vancouver from its grassy slopes. Other parks in Mount Pleasant East include China Creek North (originally purchased by the city in 1919 as an easement for sewers, it now has over 3.16 hectares of jogging paths and open fields, offering stunning views of the North Shore mountains and False Creek); Guelph Park, Fraser Street Park, Sahalli Park and China Creek South park. The recreational facilities provide a healthy lifestyle, peace and tranquility, as well as sweeping views of the city and mountains.

Mount Pleasant East also boasts one of the best neighbourhood community centres in the city. The new centre at 1 Kingsway features a gym, climbing wall, fitness centre, dance studios, and multipurpose rooms. It also offers a civic centre with a Vancouver Public Library, a child development centre, cafes and outdoor spaces. It is indeed a new jewel for the Mount Pleasant East community.


Shopping and Restaurants

The intersection of Main and Broadway serves as the retail hub of Mount Pleasant East. The shops and restaurants all seem to be situated on the routes that radiate from this centre. Independent coffee shops, local boutiques, small entertainment venues and first-class restaurants share the streets with the likes of more corporate entities. In fitting with its personality, you will find Slickity Jim’s Chat and Chew co-existing on the same block as Starbucks. Even with the influx of the more commercial retail tenants, Mount Pleasant East has never lost its eclectic reputation or its artistic edge.

The neighbourhood encompasses the early portion of the Main Corridor that roughly extends along Main Street from East 2nd to approximately East 33rd Avenue. This 31 block stretch has been experiencing a re-branding push to become known as “SoMa” (South Main). There is hope that SoMa will conjure up images of artistic retail outlets and superior restaurant choices, all seasoned with a little bit of SoMa flavour.


Transportation

Mount Pleasant East is in the enviable position of being more affordable than the likes of a Kitsilano or a Yaletown neighbourhood, while still enjoying the close proximity to and the energy of Downtown.

The transportation options and the ease with which residents can commute to other areas of the Lower Mainland is an attractive feature offered in Mount Pleasant East. East to west (ending at UBC) is a quick and easy trip thanks to the frequent and elongated B-Line bus service (Route #99). Easy accessibility to the Expo and Millennium Lines (Broadway and Commercial) and the Canada Line (Cambie and Broadway) makes outlying areas near the valley a relatively easy commute. For drivers, Main Street is one of the key North-to-South arteries in Greater Vancouver, servicing Downtown Vancouver, the North Shore, Marine Drive, and all points south of the Fraser River with both the Knight and Oak Street Bridges. Bus service to all areas of Mount Pleasant East is plentiful and frequent. If biking is your chosen mode of transportation, there are designated bike routes throughout the neighbourhood.
