Dunbar has been an area that supported the growth of University residents — with single family homes zoned to allow rental suites. There are peaceful streets with older trees, parks, and local community amenities and shopping. This is a very convenient place whether or not you need proximity to UBC — there is the quick access to Kitsilano, Downtown, and even Richmond and the Airport via SW Marine Dr.
In the southern portion of the neighbourhood, you will find residential homes that have quick access to UBC along 41st Ave & S.W.Marine Dr. To the North, there are family-oriented communities with smaller retail districts. Many of the older businesses have history in this area and have helped to maintain this neighbourhood’s village feel.
Dunbar was one of the first westside areas to see development mainly due to the BC Electric Railway in the 1910-1950s. The interurban lines like Steveston, Richmond to Marpole, Vancouver along Arbutus spurred growth at that time. Recent growth in Dunbar has been at odds with maintaining the small neighbourhood feel. The local strategy was to densify only along the main corridors with mixed-use residential/commercial units. This strategy seems to have worked well.
