Kitsilano Real Estate
The primary type of residence in Kitsilano is multi-unit housing. Although there are detached, single-family houses in Kits, the vast majority of residences are apartments. These apartments include low-rise condo and apartment buildings, as well as apartment suites within larger houses. Townhomes and duplexes are also common. Buying in Kits is less expensive than downtown, if you’re looking for apartments. But for semi-detached or detached homes, the average is $1.5M+.
Kitsilano Community Information
Kitsilano is a laid-back, upscale neighbourhood on the West Side of Vancouver, British Columbia. Also known as Kits, this area of Vancouver is bordered to the north by two beaches, Kitsilano Beach and Jericho Beach on the shores of English Bay and extends south to 16th Avenue.
Today, Kits is a combination of the eco- and hippie-spirit of its past and 21st century gentrification, evidenced in the organic markets found throughout the neighbourhood, multicultural restaurants, and shops. Walking distance to the downtown core, delightful Granville Island, a variety of parks and beaches, and so much more, Kitsilano is an ideal location for those striving to achieve that delicate balance between work and play. If you are looking for that laid back Westcoast attitude that Vancouver is famous for, you will find it in Kitsilano!
Kitsilano Restaurants and Shopping:
In addition to its residential areas and beaches, Kitsilano is home to an array of shops and restaurants that rival downtown Vancouver in terms of variety and popularity. Look no further than West 4th Avenue for one of Vancouver’s great urban shopping and dining destinations, with boutiques, big name-brand stores, sporting goods, home décor shops and a wide array of dining options from casual, beach side fare to fine dining.
Kitsilano Beaches and Parks:
Kitsilano Beach is an idyllic stretch of sand along English Bay facing the North Shore mountains and open sea. Packed with locals and tourists in the summer, the beach is the spot for sunbathing, swimming, beach volleyball, dog-walking, and socializing.
Of the 15 city parks in Kits, Vanier Park is the most popular. Located at the edge of English Bay, the park has stunning views of downtown Vancouver, as well as grassy fields, ponds and walking paths.
From celebrities to students, Kits residents come in all shapes, sizes and income brackets. The majority may be young professionals, but the neighbourhood has a greater-than-average number of over-65ers, too.
If there’s one thing Kits people have in common, it’s a love of the outdoors, whether it’s continuing the area’s tradition of eco-awareness or just enjoying biking, hiking and walking the scenic streets, beaches and parks.
