West Vancouver Real Estate Listings and Information

West Vancouver

West Vancouver, “The Waterfront Community,” is home for more than 44,000 residents.  Our community is known for its beaches, mountains, recreation facilities, and cultural activities. West Vancouver combines small-town charm with cosmopolitan amenities in several unique village business areas. The natural setting and proximity to downtown Vancouver completes our desirable setting.

District Facts
West Vancouver was founded on the principle that it would be an attractive
residential community, one without industrial activities, and this principle has been instrumental in shaping the community. The local economy is comprised primarily of retail, service and recreational activities serving the local and regional community and restricted to defined areas.

Commercial Areas
The commercial areas consist of the Ambleside Town Centre, Park Royal regional shopping centre, the neighbourhood/village centres of Dundarave,
Caulfeild and Horseshoe Bay, small local commercial centres and marina commercial operations.
Ambleside is the community’s historic commercial centre and the focus for
community activities. Its extensive retail and commercial enterprises meet the
daily shopping and service needs of many local residents and generate
employment in the community. The area is strengthened by its location adjacent
to the waterfront, its proximity to major civic facilities and the apartment area, its
pedestrian scale and excellent transportation access.

Tax Base
Residential property comprises 96% of total property value in West Vancouver;
commercial property comprises 4%. 92% of total tax revenue is derived from
residential property; 8% is derived from commercial property.
