South Granville is located on the south end of False Creek and includes the area of Fairview and part of Shaughnessy.
South Granville is a commercial strip of prestigious retail shops known for its luxury boutiques and brand-name stores, upscale restaurants, home décor shops, and art galleries, making it the perfect entertainment area for a weekend stroll. Public transportation is very easily accessible in and out of this neighbourhood. This area is home to many affluent and educated single professionals or couples. As one of Vancouver’s earlier neighbourhoods, housing in the South Granville area consists of mainly older, low-rise apartments and has been slower in new growth due to the long term residents in heritage buildings. A handful of elementary schools are located in this area.
