“The Canada Line is now the entrance to Vancouver. The cement wasteland along the riverfront isn't welcoming, it's not world class, and we're not the greenest city in the world. I'm trying to get a park and I'm very focused on that out of this density mess.” — Don Larson

“Marpole historically has always been about the water, from the time of First Nations through to the European settlement of Eburne. Over the years and through evolving land-use patterns, Marpole waterfront has become in some places derelict or underoptimized industrial land, and people who live in the area are disconnected from the water.” — Studio Marpole

“It might as well be our Berlin Wall," Langolf says of Oak Street. "I don't know of a lot of people who live on one side who dare to cross to the other side, and that has had a huge impact on the cohesiveness of our community.” — Marpole Oakridge Area Council Society

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.
