Cambie West encompasses a few neighbourhoods and is located between the City Centre and Highway 99. It has a range of housing choices and of commercial land uses. There us a large business park on the east side of Cambie East, running along both sides of Knight Street.

As a small community, Cambie West requires connections to services in City Centre and Cambie East, and better transit to King George Park/School site. Better local connections within the community and more green in the newer neighbourhoods would also increase the livability and sense of belonging.

Homes

The neighbourhoods SW of Highway 99 include Oaks, Odlinwood, and Crimson Estate, and have a mix of single family and multi-family housing with commercial strip along Garden City Rd.

Shopping

The Cambie Shopping Centre (Cambie & No 5 Rd), and the Auto Mall (west of Highway 99 between Alderbridge Way & Westminster Highway)

Recreation

The area has several small community parks scattered around plus a hydro corridor, providing green space. Richmond Nature Park West is south of Alderbridge Way, with Richmond Nature Park West on the opposite side of Highway 99, though bridges across Cambie and No 5 Rd are needed to make recreational access safe for all.

Schools

These communities have two elementary schools, and older kids attend at Cambie Secondary, and can continue to nearby Kwantlen University College.
