Yaletown began its life as a railway terminal and then became a warehousing district but this was bound to change. During the EXPO 1986 world fair transformations began with Round House in Yaletown. The influence was seeded although the changes came slowly, Yaletown slowly took on the flair of SOHO. Warehouses gave way to chic modern warehouse lofts and restaurants, bars, clubs, hotels.

The warehouse loading bays naturally repurposed into dining patios. The upscale lofts took advantage of the warehousing high ceiling space, large windows, and brick charm. As residential builders put stakehold in yaletown, so did the commercial builders. Employers attracted employees with modern chic office location that offered lifestyle full of cafes, bars and restaurants. Work late, work hard, play hard.

This is an entertainment and lifestyle neighbourhood. The seawall, provides simple pleasures of waterfront walking, biking, skating, people watching. The seawall leads to David Lam Park George Wainborn Park and quick water taxi to Granville Island fresh produce. For relaxing weekends, there are upscale homewares, furniture, decor, gift shops, bakeries, cafes, bars, shake bars, and more.
