The Neighbourhood

Coal Harbour


Tucked up against the waterfront and overlooking Stanley Park, Coal Harbour is a picturesque and tranquil neighbourhood in the downtown core of Vancouver.

The neighbourhood with the seemingly grittiest name is also one of the city’s poshest (and newest), its waterfront towers attracting big spenders and the designer stores to court them.

This neighbourhood includes not only luxury housing but also a busy working harbour with its float plane terminal, Convention Centre and Cruise Ship Terminal.

Despite the fact that Coal Harbour is right downtown, it’s a surprisingly calm little neighbourhood, right on the water’s edge. It’s even more surprising given its industrial history as a former shipyard sitting right next to the railway terminus. Coal Harbour is a charming mix of business and residential, being home to both the Vancouver Convention Centre as well as condo towers. Around this area you’ll find locals and visitors mingling on the Seawall, neighbourhood cafes and restaurants, a popular marina, and the odd harbour seal bobbing around and greeting passersby.


On The Map

Coal Harbour starts at Canada Place and stretches west to Stanley Park, and is bordered by Burrard Inlet to the north, West Georgia Street to the south. 


Crowning the downtown peninsula, the forested trails, lakes, and attractions of Stanley Park are easily accessed from Coal Harbour.

The 8.8-kilometer (5.5-mile) Seawall that circles the Stanley Park is always packed with people walking, jogging, rollerblading, or cycling along this scenic, paved pathway.

Coal Harbour’s stretch of greenery is a focal point for people to enjoy the outdoors with a dog walk, game of frisbee, or to simply sit and enjoy watching the floatplanes take off with majestic mountain views in the distance. Harbour Green Park, downtown’s longest continuous park can be accessed via Bute Street or via the seawall.


This stunning waterfront location is packed with the city’s best amenities.

Anchored by the Vancouver Convention Centre, Coal Harbour offers both residents and visitors some of the best amenities you can find in Vancouver.

There’s not to many communities where you can walk along the seawall to the marina, take a stroll to a world class convention centre, explore the icon Canada Place and take in an IMAX movie, and have your choice of 5 star accommodations like The Fairmont, Westin and The Pan Pacific.  Living in Coal Harbour is truly amazing and the ideal location for the inner city dweller who wants everything at their fingertips.


Coal Harbour is a shopper’s and restaurant lover’s dream.

Within walking distance of any area in Coal Harbour there are five star restaurants bumped up against neighbourhood drinking establishments and Sunday morning coffee shops.

On the south eastern edge of Coal Harbour is the Burrard Landing Mall where you’ll find numerous great restaurants and shops.  Steps away from the edge of Coal Harbour proper lies the high end shopping Alberni Street shopping district. Known as “luxury row”, Alberni Street is the perfect match for the affluent residents of Coal Harbour.  Running parallel to Alberni Street, and just one block north, is the famous Robson Street, Vancouver’s most popular shopping destination.
