Vancouver's "First" neighbourhood. Developed in the early 1900's by the CPR it was our city's first "planned" neighbourhood. It is characterized by magnificent homes set in estate like settings on winding tree-lined streets. A very exclusive and sought after area which saw an expansion occur not long after its inception to meet the demand by the wealthy and fashionable. It is now subdivided into 1st and 2nd Shaughnessy. Heritage restrictions exist on development.
