Fairview runs from 16th Avenue in the south, to Burrard Street in the west, to Cambie Street in the east, and to False Creek in the north. It is an important commercial and employment centre focused around Vancouver General Hospital and other health-related institutions, including the BC Cancer Agency, BC Cancer Research Centre, and the BC Centre for Disease Control. Fairview slopes, which runs North from Broadway down towards False Creek, offers spectacular city and water view from many homes and it central to almost all the Vancouver has to offer.
The South Granville area that runs from 6th Avenue to 16th Avenue is a shopper’s dream. With high-end boutiques, contemporary art galleries and modern furniture stores, it is easy to spend an afternoon walking these streets. Chances are you will probably end up taking something home as well!
The newly completed Cambie corridor offers easy access to big box stores such as Home Depot, Best Buy, Canadian Tire and Home Sense, as well as Save-On-Foods and Whole Foods. With the soon to be running Canada line skytrain station here as well, both downtown and the Airport are easy commutes.
