North Vancouver Neighbourhood Profile – Upper Lonsdale

A contained suburb only minutes from the heart of the city featuring spacious family homes and some low rise condos.

Upper Lonsdale – A Locals Perspective:

Sought after for its big views and big lots, Upper Lonsdale is the more residential part of Lonsdale Avenue located in the Upper part of Lonsdale Ave (Duh). ⁠Its close proximity to the mountains lends its residents an idyllic, woodsy retreat right outside their front door (hiking, mountain biking trails, etc). Upper Lonsdale is family & pet approved with all the essentials covered such as Queensdale Market, ⁠
Queens Cross Pub & Liquor Store, Harmony Donuts, Starbucks plus a Tims drive-thru. Any additional needs are just a short roll down the hill.

⁠With larger lots comes larger homes – great if your looking for more space and more privacy. Both house interior and lot size/backyard space is typically larger in this neighbourhood. You are likely to find homes with outdoor pools for entertaining or homes backing onto a green belt for privacy up here. Lane access is not common in this neighbourhood making its coach house potential levels low; however, there are plenty of homes with basement suites to help with the mortgage payments. ⁠

Featured Local Businesses

Queensdale Market is a locals market. Tucked away at 29th and Lonsdale, Queensdale Market features organic, natural, specialty and traditional types of food.⁠

Live the Shore’s favourite is the made to order sandwiches from their Deli.⁠

Harmony Donuts is a cute, little place hidden away along Upper Lonsdale Ave. but they make some of the best donuts around. The donuts are always fresh and have a crunchy outside with a soft cake-y texture on the inside. You can’t go wrong.⁠

Live the Shore’s favourite are the cinnamon sugar donuts.
