“Not getting it example #394: The next Yaletown?. 'Sleepy old Marpole is changing fast.' Yaletown was a wholesale act of gentrification of industrial land into residential land (meant to coincide with the post-Expo housing boom and the Concord Pacific development). Creating density around transit points like Marpole is not the same thing my friend.” — Scout Magazine

“Marpole residents have asked for more time to discuss proposals for low and mid-rise development. We need to get these plans right. Marpole, and Grandview Woodlands in particular. Marpole and the Downtown Eastside are unique and much-loved.” — Mayor Gregor Robertson

“If Marpole was meant to replace Surrey as the hinterland you don't want to come from, it's unlikely to be a joke target for long. A 20-minute bus ride connects this clutch of stucco walk-ups and Vancouver Specials with the city's high-rise heart.” — Vancouver Magazine

Future of Cambie Corridor
at Marine Drive Station

The Canada Line opened on August 17, 2009. Marine Drive Station took its design cue from the saw mills and planing mills down at Eburne. Portrayed as a "launching pad" where the tunnel comes above ground (visualize being on a log ride at the county fair).

What Does The Future Hold For The Cambie Corridor?

In the fall of 2009, the City hosted several events to hear your ideas on the future of the Cambie Corridor – the area centred along Cambie Street from 16th Avenue to the Fraser River, which includes four new Canada Line stations.

Based on your input, we have drafted a revised set of principles that will guide planning in the Corridor. Please join us at an open house to review the feedback and the revised principles:

Wednesday, November 4, 2009 4 - 8 pm
Holy Name of Jesus Church
4905 Cambie St. (at W 33rd Ave.)

Saturday, November 7, 2009, 10 am - 4 pm
Oakridge Centre Mall - Auditorium
650 W 41st Ave. (at Cambie St.)
Auditorium Entrance: West Parking Lot

The opening of the Canada Line gives the City the opportunity to plan a corridor, with the help of our communities, that can grow in a way that responds to environmental sustainability, livability and affordability.
