Prince Rupert Real Estate Listings and Information
A triangular neighbourhood, Prince Rupert is wholly contained within the old Hudson Bay Company land reserve. During the great pre-World War I land boom, the Company decided to subdivide a portion of this property. In preparation for subdivision, Portage Avenue was paved and street car tracks were laid down. The avenue was later renamed Kingsway in honour of King George VI’s visit in 1939. For several decades, traffic on this broad thoroughfare passed by the largely rural lands of Prince Rupert. Until the late 1940s, the neighbourhood contained a farm and a golf course. The post World War II housing boom quickly converted the remaining open lands in Prince Rupert.
