Downtown real estate guide & listings for sale

There are a lot of green spaces to enjoy in Downtown, despite its sometimes busy feel. Parks are very well-spread out and there are about 10 of them nearby for residents to enjoy, which makes it very easy to get to them. Finally, this neighbourhood has many areas that are very calm and quiet, although other spots can be noisy, especially closer to one of the railway lines.


No matter the medium of transportation, it is simple to travel in Downtown. Walking is reasonably practical for residents in Downtown; many daily errands can be run on foot. However, Downtown is not very bike-friendly because cyclists encounter quite a few hills, and the cycling infrastructure is not very comprehensive. Owing to 2 rapid transit stations (New Westminster Station and Columbia Station) on the Expo Line, and a few nearby bus lines, the good public transit access allows people to get to many destinations without needing a vehicle. Downtown is also reasonably car friendly. It is convenient to access a parking spot.


A majority of the housing growth in Downtown has taken place following the year 2000. The substantial proportion of large apartment buildings in the housing stock of this neighbourhood is an important part of its character. Renters occupy around 55% of the properties in Downtown and owners occupy the remainder. This part of New Westminster is primarily composed of two bedroom and one bedroom homes.


It is generally feasible for home buyers in Downtown to do grocery shopping by walking. Furthermore, there is often a restaurant or cafe just around the corner. It is also easy to get to a number of clothing stores on foot. Regarding education, in this part of the city, parents and their kids will generally be able to reach schools and daycares by walking. Residents can choose between public and private schools at both the elementary and high school level.
