It's disgusting to see all that white area. The City refuses to respond to the critical need for higher density. Even in a corridor served by rail transit. It's criminal incompetence. Marpole is especially pathetic.

Beyond the dearth of density, I think not stretching commercial down the east-west arterials is a mistake. Here is an opportunity to put goods and services within easy walking distance of people and they are missing it.

Yeah. I agree. Missed opportunity.

It's more than a missed opportunity. It's a harmful dereliction of leadership. This ongoing policy of grossly inadequate density increases along (and around) major transportation corridors and transit nodes is irresponsible and cowardly, and will have irrevocable adverse consequences for Vancouver for many decades (or even generations).

well. that's been a problem with the city for a long time. poor decision making, and stupid planning like this. but the city keeps on making decisions like this, and nobody seems to be saying nothing - no change, means we get the same old shit over and over again. That's what's frustrating too. I don't understand how the city doesn't seem to understand. With that being said, the station on King Edward has some retail right next to it. Why can't more development be like that?

Even some of the newer development further south on Cambie Boulevard doesn't have retail at the bottom (some do - i.e. new condos on 49th and Cambie, just sourth of the Baptist Church, but before 49th Ave). It's poor planning. We need new blood at City Hall with new policies with things like view cones - but alas, this will probably never change.

From VancouverMarket.ca:

5130-5170 Cambie St.
(Near West 35th Ave., excluding the corner lot)

This is what's proposed for the corner lot (5110 Cambie):

Sad. this type of residential building should be located 2 or more blocks away from the main road of Cambie, and not along the major road!

I agree. Cambie should be 10-14 stories, scaling down to 8 stories one block away, then 6 stories.
