Vancity Branch 9 (Main and 26th) held a “Gingerbread Competition” leading up to Christmas 2017. Four teams of staff created four gingerbread houses to represent four community organizations active in our area. Vancity members were asked to voted for the house they liked best and donate to support that organization.

RPSC was one of the four organizations chosen to receive a donation from the competition.  Our thanks to Vancity staff for their support.

The City of Vancouver, as part of the Cambie Corridor Phase 3 redevelopment of Riley Park South Cambie, has announced plans for a large scale redevelopment of the residential areas near the Oakridge Shopping Centre.

This is called the ookridge Municipal Town Centre and is separate from the redevelopment of the Oakridge shopping centre.

The area encompasses Columbia to Willow between 41st and 37th Avenues on the north and Cambie to Columbia between 41st and 45th on the south.

  • It will remove existing single storey housing and replace it with muti-unit housing
  • Much of the housing will be built in hi-rise form
  • Emphasis will be given to rental housing.

Riley Park South Cambie Community Visions Committee continues to address the issue of maintaining structures in the area that are of Heritage Value. Structures that have been lost include:

  1.  Oakridge United Church, built in 1949 at 350 W. 41st, has been sold to Townline Development, which is part of the Ilych Development company. Heritage Vancouver believes that the building should not be torn down as planned and retained as a social amenity for the community due to its inherent architectural value. It is considered to be an excellent example of  Gothic Revival  style that is worth preserving.  It is on the Society’s Top Ten list of buildings to be preserved in 2015. The building is scheduled to be destroyed in 2018.
  2. Oakridge Lutheran Church at 41st and Cambie. An example of north European Lutheran church architecture, the building was removed in the fall of 2017.

Structures that we continue to lobby the City of [...]

The northeast quadrant area refers to the single family houses between Main St. and Quebec and from 33rd Ave. to 35th Ave. The area lies immediately adjacent to the Little Mountain Social housing site on the east side between 33rd and 35th Avenues and Main to Quebec Streets.

There are now five redevelopment projects in various stages of progress within the area adjoining the Little Mountain site.

See   http://vancouver.ca/rezapps  for details of projects that are still at the proposal stage on Quebec St., 35th St. and Main St. within the quadrant.

 

 

There are approximately twenty five redevelopment projects planned or in progress within the area of  the Cambie Corridor (25th to 41st Ave. and Oak to Fraser Streets).

You can obtain updates on Development Proposals in Vancouver including all of those along the Cambie Corridor and within the Riley Park South Cambie region through this the City of Vancouver website.
