Recognized as one of the best places to live in Canada, the Vancouver West Side is composed of a number of diverse neighbourhoods. You will find heritage and history with magnificent estates located in Shaughnessy and the University Endowment Lands, while architecturally beautiful homes abound throughout Kitsilano. Kitsilano offers a mix of single family homes, duplexes and apartments, and is also a popular spot for families and professionals wanting to be close to the beach. Suitable for many budgets and lifestyles, Fairview has higher density developments which are a great option for those seeking a transit-friendly neighbourhood.
If you’re looking for some of the best city views on the West Side, a trip to either Arbutus Ridge, Point Grey or Dunbar should be on your list. Stop for high tea in Kerrisdale or browse some of the local community shops. One of the oldest inhabited areas on Vancouver’s West Side is Marpole. Recently, Marpole has experienced a huge demand for development. As a result, carefully planned new developments cater to a variety of budgets and lifestyles. After more than a decade of planning, the Oakridge neighbourhood will undergo a dramatic change as construction will soon begin on the Oakridge Centre redevelopment. Expected to be completed in 2025, the floor area of the retail shopping centre will grow to about one million square feet. Ten towers and four mid-rise buildings will offer 2,600 residential units with significant green space and Sky Train accessibility.
