The Neighbourhood

Old City Quarter Nanaimo

Old City Quarter

The Old City Quarter of Nanaimo is the original core of the city, maintaining many of its unique historical aspects. Some of the buildings in this area date from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s. Old City has recently undergone a revitalization of heritage buildings and the addition of many new developments that complement the period architecture. Interest in Old City has been rekindled due to this, resulting in increased interest from buyers and upmarket retailers.

This neighbourhood is central to many city amenities such as restaurants, pubs and other retail stores. Some attractions include nearby boutiques, specialty shops and popular restaurants, such as Asteras, Figo Italian Bistro and The Vault Cafe.  The Old City Quarter is also host to many community events, such as the annual International World Championship Bathtub Race and Nanaimo Marine Festival. This summertime event is well-known for its many water activities and spectacular shows. Other locations of interest include nearby medical clinics and the local police station.
