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.
