Strathcona

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

In Strathcona, there are presently approximately 8,000 residents. During the boom years after the founding of the city, the region actually started to bloom. This growth in population was partially due from the choice of early Vancouver as a railway station. The district emerged from the initial settlement that grew around Hastings Mill.

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

There has been a major gentrification process within Strathcona during the recent years, reinforcing the economic disparity of the district. Many of the houses within Strathcona are designated heritage homes since the late 19th and early 20th century architecture in the area is somewhat rare within Vancouver. Specifically, the housing stock is being rejuvenated and renovated. As a result, property values have increased and wealthier home owners are being drawn into the district. Many homeowners have renovated their homes in the original Victorian or Edwardian styles, including paying precise attention to the "true colours" of the time period.
