Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant is a centrally located community situated between 2nd Ave. (North) & 16th Ave. (South) and between Cambie St. (West) & Clark Dr. (East). Once considered a working class community, Mount Pleasant is now one of Vancouver's up and coming neighborhoods. Many first time homeowners and young professionals between the ages of 25 and 35, without children, have made Mount Pleasant their home making it an energetic, vibrant, and diverse community. Adding to the diversity of the area is an eclectic mix of new and old homes, apartments, artist studios, schools, and industry.

The History of Mount Pleasant starts with a stream that ran down towards False Creek, which attracted several breweries to set up along it. After the breweries arrived, a couple of slaughterhouses opened up, then a tannery, and then more and more businesses and homes started to spring up. Finally a street car line was brought in, connecting the city centre to Main St. and Kingsway, making Mount Pleasant a viable community, and in essence was Vancouver's first suburb. Vancouver's City Hall was built in the area in 1936 and still remains one of Vancouver's more recognizable landmarks.
