 History of Yaletown

As like the rest of Vancouver, Yaletown was heavily influenced by the Canadian Pacific Railway. By the year 1880 the line had reached the large town of Yale, then the former centre of the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush. As the line expanded, the residents of Yale moved with it to what would eventually be known as Yaletown. These modest homes were converted into industrial centres due to the proximity to False Creek and the Railway. As time went on and Globalization took its effect, Expo86 came to Vancouver and kick started  the real estate boom of the 20th century. After industry left the area, the land was contaminated and bought by the city. Opening the door for the eventual redevelopment. The site, purchased by the city, eventually sold to Hong Kong based developer Li Ka-Shing which set in motion what is Yaletown today.

This new development By Boffo Developments will be like no other. Offering an attention to detail in one of downtown Vancouver is most desired locations. This development will consist of five homes per floor beginning at roughly 1000 square feet for the two bedrooms, and three-bedroom homes will also be available.  Residents are sure to expect fabulous custom finishings that only a boutique developer like Boffo can provide.

Changes are coming to Vancouver’s Rapid Transit System

On September 19, 2016, Translink CEO Kevin Desmond announced that changes are coming to Vancouver’s Rapid Transit system. Users of the network will see these changes coming to effect on October 22 as part of a test to prepare for the opening of the new Evergreen Extension.

Here is a bullet point summary of how these changes will affect the Expo and Millennium Lines:

The Expo Line:

  • Implementation of two routes:
    • First one travelling between Waterfront (Downtown Vancouver) and King George Station (Surrey).
    • Second one travelling between Waterfront (Downtown Vancouver) and Production Way-University in Burnaby

The Millennium Line:

  • No longer travelling to Waterfront Station. It will go between VCC-Clark station in Vancouver to Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby.
  • Commercial Broadway
  • Lougheed Station (NOTE: MAKE SURE TO READ THE SIGN ON THE TRAIN AND/OR ON THE NOTICE BOARD! YOU COULD END UP ON THE WRONG TRAIN AS THEY ARE ARRIVING ON THE SAME PLATFORM)
  • Production Way-University

There will also be some changes once the Evergreen Line comes into operation which will affect the Millennium Line. The Millennium Line will now operate between VCC-Clark and Lafarge Lake – Douglas stations. Meaning that you will have the ability to enjoy a “one-seat” ride between Lafarge Lake – Douglas and VCC-Clark so you’ll have plenty of time to browse the internet, keep on to date on the market, and get some much-needed work done.

 

If you are concerned about these changes and are unsure of how it will affect your daily commute. Translink has provided a Trip Planner on their website that takes into the account and will show you how your daily commute is affected. You can log to http://tripplanning.translink.ca/ to see how your daily commute is affected.

 

You can see a map of the current plan and the new one by clicking on to this link: http://www.translink.ca/skytrainchanges
