…offering visitors a dazzling array of foods, spices, clothing and wares from India and other parts of South East Asia
Most of the housing options in this area have traditionally been single-family, detached homes built pre-1946. An increasing demand for high-quality, affordable housing options near Vancouver’s Downtown, has led to a surge of new development in the neighbourhood. Multi-unit low and mid-rise buildings have sprung up, in addition to upscale townhouse developments.
A significant redevelopment proposal at the site known as Little Mountain (bounded by Main and Ontario, between 33rd and 37th) will further redefine the character of Main. This development proposal includes retail shops, canals and at least seven residential towers of six-to-eight stories in height. The tallest proposed building would be 14 stories and border on the edge of Queen Elizabeth Park. The developer proposes significant retail space (grocery stores, banking facilities, etc) as well as a Little Mountain Neighbourhood house, a child care facility and playground with park space. The impact of this future development on the Main neighbourhood will be immense.
The shopping and restaurant availability in Main can only is best described as eclectic. The shopping opportunities offer all the day-to-day needs such as groceries, banking, insurance, and liquor stores. But it is the plenitude of independently owned and operated boutique stores that offer the Main resident an extensive variety and range of goods that is unheard of in most other parts of Greater Vancouver.
The Main Street corridor has become a destination point for the savvy boutique shopper looking for that perfect “something” that is so hard to find. A section of the neighbourhood area anchored by Main Street and King Edward is also gaining its own reputation as “restaurant row” and offers the discerning diner a myriad of choices, atmospheres and price points that should be able to satisfy all tastes and preferences.
Located on the southern border of Main is the area now officially designated as the “Punjabi Market”. This market has its core at Main Street and East 49th Avenue and stretches south for several blocks, offering visitors a dazzling array of foods, spices, clothing and wares from India and other parts of South East Asia. Needless to say, the South Asian restaurant fare is not only authentic but also of superior quality and quantity.

The MLS® HPI Benchmark Prices shown below represent the current expected sales price for a typical or “Benchmark” home in a given neighbourhood.
The MLS® HPI takes into consideration what averages and medians do not – items such as lot size, age, number of rooms, etc. The most commonly traded set of these attributes describes the composite of the typical or ‘benchmark’ property type in a given area. Prices paid for homes with these attributes determine benchmark home prices.
The MLS® Home Price Index is modelled on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) which measures the rate of price change for a basket of goods and services including food, clothing, shelter, and transportation. Instead of measuring goods and services, the HPI measures the change in the price of housing features. Thus, the HPI measures typical, pure price change (inflation or deflation).
The graph below charts the historical Home Price Index over a 3 year period.
