"Mount Pleasant community is definitely changing, gone are the days when you are afraid of renting or buying a ground level condo especially if you are a woman, nowadays, it's more of yuppies who live in these neighborhood" these were the words I gathered from a Mount Pleasant resident.
Mount Pleasant is a hip, vibrant and awesome community, people are friendly, the community thrives to be different, either thru expression of art as seen on the streets of St George st, community gardens with a shed for art exchange, or thru the latest buildings, could be heritage or totally modern look establishments, restaurants, etc. There is a multi-culturalism that is happening and yet it complements and blends in this eclectic neighborhood.
Mount Pleasant East stretches from Main to Clark Drive and from Great Northern Way and E2nd Avenue to e16th and Kingsway. It used to be a working class neighborhood but has undergone gentrification. There is a migration of people from popular areas such as Kitsilano and downtown Vancouver to this neighborhood. Single urban young professionals, young or starter families and some retirees are what composed this community.
