EDGEMONT NORTH VANCOUVER

In the Amazon age of easy, cheap, and fast home delivery, there are not supposed to be any more neighbourhood bookshops. But in the space of three blocks in Edgemont Village, there are two. They co-exist peacefully, complementing each other; one is Kidsbooks and the other is 32 Books & Gallery. Both are independent, locally owned, and buzzing with activity. Perhaps that is the best description of the character of Edgemont, known as "the village" among locals. With a cheerful collection of more than 100 shops and services along a half-kilometre stretch, the community hub at the intersection of Edgemont and Highland Boulevards is a magnet for the surrounding neighbourhoods of Capilano Highlands, Delbrook, Forest Hills, and Sunset Gardens. Every day of the week it is a popular gathering place, where people still believe in the importance of neighbourhood bookstores.

"The family-oriented The village also offers a variety of grocery stores, including the midnature of Edgemont sized Edgemont Market and smaller specialty stores: Columbus Farm Market, the Meatery, and Cobs Bread. Similarly, oneof-a-kind clothing shops include boutiques aimed at children, Village has endured, teenagers, women and men. Banks, insurance agencies, and hair salons offer valuable services within walking distance with many people for many locals. Specialty shops like Urban Yarns, Kabloom flower shop, Pandora gift shop, and Tartooful, which carries artistic home design items like candles and wool blankets, who grew up in the add unexpected appeal to the streetscape. Of course, coffee shops including Delaney's and CafĂŠ Artigiano are ever-popular neighbourhood raising destinations. A cornerstone of Edgemont Village is the Capilano branch of the North Vancouver Library, which features comfortable reading areas, a wonderful children's section, and a teen area. their own children The first shops on the high street of Edgemont opened in the 1940s, there." soon after the construction of the Lions Gate Bridge prompted residential development on the North Shore. Edgemont Village was built on the side of Grouse Mountain, with winding streets and crescents following the contours of the landscape.The neighbourhoods remain densely forested, offering an eclectic mix of old and new houses and natural privacy afforded by the surrounding trees and the varying orientations and sizes of the lots. A sharp-eyed observer would notice a few remaining examples of the original West Coast Modernist homes. Designed by the group of architects including Fred Hollingsworth, Arthur Erickson, Ron Thom and Ned Pratt, these homes typically exhibited open-plan layouts, local materials, and compatibility with the landscape. These architects used the North Shore to develop their style. The family-oriented nature of Edgemont Village has endured, with many people who grew up in the neighbourhood raising their own children there. Condominiums aimed at seniors are now being developed in the area, to allow multiple generations to stay in the place they love. A vibrant community sports scene and a brand new community centre, currently under construction, are attractive draws for young families. Edgemont village truly comes alive on Friday evenings in July, when traffic stops on the boulevard for the summer concert series. It's a great place to pick up ice cream, yogurt or cappuccinos from one of the many local eateries and gather with friends and neighbours to enjoy music, dancing and the stunning backdrop of the North Shore mountains.
