Lord Roberts Elementary School and Lord Roberts Annex are both within walking distance of the Coal Harbour boundaries.

If private or independent schooling is more of a consideration, both the Pattison High School and the Westside Preparatory School are also easily accessed from Coal Harbour.

If access to higher education is a goal, then Coal Harbour offers opportunities at your doorstep. In the nearby downtown core there are three institutions of higher learning that have established downtown campuses.

At Robson Square, the University of British Columbia has established a downtown campus featuring Continuing Studies, Faculty of Law and Faculty of Medicine offerings (including a full-time Masters in Health Administration program) as well as the respected Sauder School of Business offering part-time MBA Studies. The UBC Bookstore, a branch of the UBC Library, and over 70,000 square feet of convention and event facilities round out the amenities.

Just down the street at 555 Seymour, there is the downtown campus for BCIT (British Columbia Institute of Technology) with a full spectrum of courses available.

At Harbour Centre on West Hastings, Simon Fraser University offers a full selection of continuing studies. Another downtown location, in the iconic Woodwards Building, are the facilities of SFU’s renowned School for Contemporary Arts. Coupled with their Segal Grad School of Business and the Morris J.

…realize the dream of luxury condo living with easy access to all the amenities of a thriving and vibrant downtown area


Tucked up against the waterfront of Vancouver, Coal Harbour is bordered by Denman Street at the north, Georgia Street on the west, Burrard Street on the south and the Vancouver harbour to the east. This neighbourhood includes not only luxury housing but also a busy working harbour with its float plane terminal, Convention Centre and Cruise Ship Terminal. Stanley Park sits at the northern edge and the financial district of Vancouver borders its southern area. To the east you can see Deadman’s Island which is the site of a naval station and museum and where the harbour opens up to the Burrard Inlet. The discovery of coal in the harbour area in 1862 is what led to its iconic name.

Housing and History

This area was mainly an industrial area supporting the needs of a busy metropolitan port until the late 1980s. Anchored by the venerable Bayshore Inn at its northwestern tip, the area began an extensive redevelopment in the late 1990s. Coal Harbour has now become an upscale high-rise condominium area complemented with luxury townhomes.

The amazing views of Stanley Park, the North Shore Mountains and the Burrard Inlet are one of the single most pervasive factors in the lifestyle of Coal Harbour. The urban-dwellers are either most likely to be young, well-off professional singles, or upper middle-class older residents who have downsized from their single-family homes in the suburbs to realize the dream of luxury condo living with easy access to all the amenities of a thriving and vibrant downtown area.


Stanley Park and the Harbour Seawall … a nature lover’s dream, a walker/jogger’s perfect Sunday morning run. Dog walking, rollerblading, rowing, tennis, lawn bowling, rugby … these and many more sports are easily accessible from Coal Harbour. Stanley Park offers facilities and outdoor activities in the most magnificent urban setting in Canada. Local upscale gyms, spas and a vibrant waterfront community centre cater to those wanting more indoor facilities.

Shopping and Restaurants

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. The upscale supermarket, Urban Fare, has opened two new stores in the area, one in the southern quadrant and one in the northern part. The accessibility to shopping is amazing. Steps away from the edge of Coal Harbour proper lies the shop-filled blocks of the famous Robson Street. Upscale shopping and its mix of quality goods and people-watching have made Robson Street a lure for shoppers and tourists wanting the true Vancouver experience.

Also in Coal Harbour lies some of the most visited tourist and business sites in Vancouver. Canada Place with its iconic roof representative of a tall ship’s sails; the Pan Pacific Hotel, the Vancouver World Trade Centre, Vancouver’s Cruiseship Terminal and the beautiful new Vancouver Convention Centre all provide a vibrant hub of activities, artistic ventures and sightseeing. Other attractions include Jack Poole Plaza with the Olympic Flame and the Float Plane Terminal. Close by is the Vancouver Harbour Air Control Tower that sits high atop the Granville Square high-rise. Built in 1974, this Tower remains the highest air traffic control tower in the world and is responsible for the busiest water aerodrome in Canada.


Accessibility is the key to Coal Harbour. Any and all amenities an urban resident would need are within walking distance. If farther reaching areas are where you need to be, the arterial roads of Georgia Street and Robson Street offer quick access to all points north and south of the Vancouver downtown area. The proximity to the Skytrain stations for eastern points and the Canada Line for Richmond and Vancouver International Airport access makes Coal Harbour one of the most efficient transportation areas of the lower Mainland.
