Established in 1907, South Granville or Uptown is an upscale Business Improvement Area (BIA) south of Vancouver's downtown core and bordered by the neighbourhoods of Kitsilano, Fairview and Shaughnessy.
Separated from downtown by False Creek, the area runs along Granville Street from the south side of the Granville Street Bridge up to 16th Ave, where the shops are replaced by the residences of Shaughnessy. "South Granville" celebrated its Centennial in 2007 with a celebration of the community and merchants. The South Granville BIA commemorated the 100 years by encasing a state-of-the-art, stainless steel Time Capsule in concrete and stone under the entrance of the historic Stanley Theatre.
As well as being a fast-growing neighbourhood of residences, shops and restaurants, South Granville also contains a strip, between Broadway and the foot of the Granville Bridge, known as "Gallery Row" which is home to a number of art galleries.
