Welcome To Beautiful Old City Quarter

Old City Nanaimo Downtown Realtor MLS Realtor Real Estate

Nanaimo’s Old City Quarter is part of the original economic core of the city. Buildings in the area date from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. The Old City Quarter has undergone a revitalization of heritage buildings along with the addition of new developments which complement the period architecture. A revitalization program in the early 1980’s attracted upmarket retailers.

Since the early 2000’s we have seen a steady increase in the renovations that have gone into this area and now the area is vibrant and filled with families. There are so many fantastic restaurants and pubs that fill the area plus lots of great shopping spots to fill a weekend afternoon. Some of our favorite dining spots are Penny’s Palapa, which is a floating Mexican restaurant in the inner harbour, Gabriels CafeNew York Style Pizza and The Nest Bistro. Shopping favorites include The Flying Fish for casual browsing of furniture and housewares, Quintessentials which is a great womens clothing store with trendy pieces and classic accessories. There is also NYLA Fresh Thread – a destination men’s clothing shop that is worth the trip.
