Strathcona

The residential neighbourhood of Strathcona within Vancouver is considered one of the city's oldest neighbourhood. The neighborhood is surrounded by the BNSF Railway (the Canadian National Railway and the Great Northern Railway) towards the south, the Burrard Inlet towards the north, Clark Drive to the east, and Chinatown to the west.

Within Strathcona, there are now about 8,000 inhabitants. During the boom years after the founding of the city, the neighborhood actually started to bloom. This population growth was partially due from the choice of early Vancouver as a railway terminus. The region emerged from the initial settlement that grew around Hastings Mill.

Strathcona has always been a working class district. The residents who call the area home come from numerous ethnic backgrounds. Where 61% of the individuals report Chinese as their mother tongue, it is the only neighborhood where English is not the most normally spoken language, and just 24 percent report English as their first language.

There has been a significant gentrification process within Strathcona during the recent years, reinforcing the economic disparity of the neighborhood. Many of the residences in Strathcona are designated heritage homes as the late 19th and early 20th century architecture within the area is somewhat rare in Vancouver. Particularly, the housing stock is being renovated and rejuvenated. Hence, property values have increased and wealthier home owners are being drawn into the region. Numerous homeowners have refurbished their residences in the original Victorian or Edwardian styles, like paying particular attention to the "true colours" of the time period.
