Fairview Townhomes: AN INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Fairview

Close to the waterfront, downtown core and one of Vancouver's most popular attractions, Granville Island, Fairview is a highly desirable neighbourhood on Vancouver’s Westside.

While being bordered by Burrard Street to the west, Cambie Street to the east, False Creek to the north and 16th Avenue to the south, Fairview is also one of the most accessible communities in the city. If your household waves goodbye each morning with one person heading downtown to work, and the other heading anywhere else in the city, there’s no better middle ground than Fairview.

Due to its proximity to downtown, great transport networks plus a wealth of recreational activities including the seawall, parks and beaches, Fairview is the place to work and play. However, this is no longer a hidden gem, and demand for this area is high and constantly growing.

Fairview Real Estate

For those new to the area, Fairview encompasses smaller neighbourhoods including False Creek, Burrard Slopes, Fairview Slopes and Fairview heights.

Once dominated by large single-family homes, growth and demand has resulted in an increased supply of townhomes in Fairview.

In Fairview, you will find a mix of townhome styles.

Older, generally larger townhomes with unrivalled views of Downtown, False Creek and the North Shore mountains can be an excellent purchase, with many presenting the opportunity for interior updates to make your mark on the home.

In addition to many already having updated interiors or the fantastic opportunity to upgrade, many, if not all, of the older Fairview townhomes were required to be rainscreened in recent years. With newer exterior envelopes that are far more weather resistant, concerns of expensive maintenance down the line are far less of a concern.

Alternatively, the newer, stylish and slightly smaller townhomes that are appearing, offer a great investment. With great amenities and a close-to-everything location, these townhomes are ideal for couples, growing families and downsizers alike.
