The Olympic Village is Vancouver’s last waterfront community. Vancouver real estate statistics for False Creek South (Olympic Village) saw listings increase 50% and sales decline substantially.
We can only track the activity for this neighbourhood through MLS, not the Developers who are pre-selling, but that will eventually change and then we can get a better feel for the neighbourhood. Most expensive listing $1,248,000 for 1141 sq.ft. sub penthouse (air conditioned) in Foundry. The increase in listings is due mainly to resales in Foundry at 1833 Crowe.
