Artists and Industries, Residents and Retailers.
A True All-in-One Neighbourhood.

Close to the core of Vancouver’s Downtown, easily accessible by transit or arterial roads, and affordable … all these make the Hastings neighbourhood ready for middle-income earners looking for a place to call home.


As is expected from a longstanding family-based neighbourhood, there are a number of quality educational opportunities available to residents of the Hastings neighbourhood. Elementary schools located in Hastings include Sir William Macdonald Elementary with grades K to 7 with Admiral Seymour, Britannia & Lord Nelson Elementary schools located nearby. Templeton Secondary is the senior secondary school of choice for Hastings residents.

The neighbourhood of Hastings is clearly defined by its southern boundary of Venables Street, stretching from its western border of Clark Drive and across to its eastern border at Nanaimo Sreet. The neighbourhood’s northern border is the water’s edge of the Burrard Inlet from Clark Drive to Nanaimo Street.

…encompassing everything from Vancouver Specials, to small bungalows, to impressive heritage homes

Housing & History

Encompassing much of the industrial waterfront and rail lines in the north, Hastings is slowly evolving into an up-and-coming residential neighbourhood. There is presently a mixture of low and high-rise buildings – both strata-titled and rental units. The area is also dotted with a many single and multi-family homes, encompassing everything from Vancouver Specials, to small bungalows, to impressive heritage homes. Loft buildings and work/live studio spaces have also sprung up on Railway, Alexander, and Powell Street, providing an eclectic and artistic edge to this neighbourhood.

It is an area being discovered by young, multi-ethnic middle and lower-income singles, as well as younger singles and couples searching rental units; nonetheless, Hastings still has a significant senior population that has called the neighbourhood home for decades. Most of the dwellings in this area predate 1946, although the 70s and 80s saw a growth spurt of new construction. With renewed interest from the younger population, and sense of “being discovered”, new housing starts mixed with renovations of existing properties are becoming more prevalent in this area.


Hastings has many green spaces for the outdoor enthusiasts and recreation facility users. The exquisite terraces of Pandora Park offer residents open grass fields, shaded walks, a playground and tennis courts. This gem of a park is surrounded by old stone walls and majestic trees. Templeton Park (next to Templeton Secondary) offers both a beautiful open park and a community pool. The open fields are interspersed with sidewalks and paths, perfect for jogging and dog walking. The Templeton Pool building is unique with its decorative hand painted tiles courtesy of the artistic talents of Hastings residents. Woodland Park offers the best of both worlds – large open fields, a small picturesque garden and recreational facilities like a playground and a fieldhouse. Part of the park is devoted to the appreciation of First Nations art, featuring a totem garden that should not be missed, as well as native plants and First Nations sculptures (both traditional and contemporary). On Venables in the Hastings neighbourhood is The Cultch (formally the Vancouver East Cultural Centre), home to contemporary dance, music, theatre & visual arts since 1973.

Shopping and Restaurants

As with any neighbourhood that is a mix of industrial, light industrial, retail and residential, there is an interesting availability of retail outlets and restaurants. There are pockets of block-long assortments of neighbourhood shops, coffee shops and ethnic restaurants. Accessibility to major grocery stores, drug stores and other amenities is simple, with a short commute from almost anywhere in the neighbourhood.

Interest in the uniqueness of this neighbourhood from the artistic community has led to a proliferation of artist’s studios and live/work spaces along Clark Drive and Powell Street – the anchor being the large warren-like building at 1000 Parker. This unique mix of artistry and commercial endeavours is now supported by the annual Eastside Culture Crawl that features over 300 working artists throwing open their doors to the public over a November weekend. This annual event brings thousands of visitors into the neighbourhood, and is providing a revived perception and renewed respect for Hastings.

Another enclave of eclectic shopping and innovative eating and drinking spots is just east of the Historic District of Gastown and runs along Railway Street and Alexander Street. Japantown is also a historical area of Hastings, featuring not only historical buildings and a proud resident base but also outstanding restaurants and corner markets overflowing with produce. Iconic Vancouver institutions such as the Astoria and Waldorf Hotels, Pepino’s Spaghetti House and the Gourmet Warehouse all call Hastings home. The Hastings neighbourhood is Yeast Vancouver central with Storm Brewing – Vancouver’s longest running craft brewery. Or Callister Brewing the first co-working collaborative brewery in Canada home to Good Buddy and Sundown beer brands.


Public transportation is frequent and plentiful throughout Hastings, as the neighbourhood is blanketed by bus routes that quickly transport residents to Downtown and beyond. Powell Street and Hastings Street are both significant east-west arterial routes for transporting drivers into, or out of, the Downtown. The neighbourhood also offers direct access to the Second Narrows Bridge, taking drivers to the North Shore, or to the Cassiar Connector and Highway 1 propelling drivers to all areas of the Lower Mainland. For the biking enthusiast, Hastings offers the ease of travel to and from the Downtown core via the Adanac Bikeway, while safe north/south travel is provided the Lakewood Bikeway.
