Norgate and Pemberton are situated at the south-western boundary of North Vancouver right next to West Vancouver. The two communities are clustered around Marine Drive. The neighbourhood of Pemberton was settled in the 1920s through the 1940s, taking advantage of the flat waterfront land to house the Burrard Inlet's shipyard employees. Today Pemberton is the area west of MacKay Ave north of Marine Drive and Norgate is the neighbourhood south of Marine Drive stretching south to Welch St.
Norgate and Pemberton are really the only communities in North Vancouver that are right at sea-level. They are two of the most affordable regions in North Vancouver for detached residential real estate. In the region you will find an array of single family homes, most of which were built shortly after WWII. Norgate was originally developed back in the 1940’s as housing for the workers at the Lower Lonsdale shipyards. There are mostly ranchers in the region, but there are also some two story homes. There are also condominiums in the area with many new ones currently under construction. Please contact us to search for real estate in Norgate / Pemberton.
