Arbutus and surrounding area began as railbed development along the north-south arbutus corridor. During the 40s and 50s, sand was brought in from False Creek to fill in the swampy area to begin residential development. Consisting of mostly tree line streets, and single family, homes, there is a mix of residents from young professionals, students, and seniors.
Because of the proximity of the area to Downtown, the Kitsilano beach, and Kerrisdale boutique shopping, it is a very desirable neighbourhood. The 2 largest demographic age ranges are 40-64, and 19-under. There is a mix of single family homes, townhouses, low-rise, high-rise, and older homes with heritage styling.
Arbutus has some of the top private schools in Vancouver and is therefore a desirable area for young families. Arbutus is a quiet area and feels like a an oasis away from the major stores/malls. There are still to be found many local dining, and retail stores especially north along nearby Broadway St.
