If you live in the Vancouver Westside and regularly use Point Grey Road as your commute route to downtown Vancouver, a long 1-km section of the route will no longer be available for your use by the end of this year should the $6-million Point Grey-Cornwall bike lane plan be approved by Vancouver City Council.

City staff have recommended to Council that the street become a residents-only street by blocking off Point Grey Road at Macdonald Street to the east and Alma Street to the west. The bike lane plan will connect the Burrard Bridge bike lanes with Jericho Beach and Vancouver Westside neighbourhoods. But let’s not kid ourselves, given Council’s history with bike lanes this will most certainly be approved and conveniently this will also become a local resident-access only street for the neighbourhood’s wealthy.

 

The plan to “calm” the street will reduce vehicle traffic from 10,000 per day to just 500. The vehicle traffic from this street of road is expected to be largely diverted to Macdonald Street, the eastern end of the Point Grey Road closure, and Broadway and West 4th Avenue. Macdonald Street, which is just 2 lanes wide and serviced by the #2 and #22 buses, will see its daily traffic spike from the current 10,000 per day to 17,000 plus.

 

Needless to say, many residents in the area and in the Vancouver Westside are not too happy with the decrease in mobility and the increase in traffic on their neighbourhood streets. For transit users, it floods more traffic onto already congested arterial roads on West 4th Avenue and Broadway, which are heavily used by buses.

Along Cornwall Avenue and west of Alma Street on Point Grey Road to Jericho Beach, bike lanes will be installed but will not involve total road closures to vehicles. York Avenue will also become a one-way neighbourhood street to make way for an secondary bike lane route.

 

It really makes you think whether a plan with less impact, that also considers the needs of commuters, could have been hatched.

The Greater Vancouver Housing Market continues to maintain a relative balance between number of homes for sale and the number of people wanting to purchase a home.

According to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, we are in a “balanced market” in which prices are stable and other conditions don’t tilt in favour of buyers or sellers, says REBGV President Sandra Wyant. Last month’s sales were 22.2% below the 10 year sales average for the month.

 

The Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver real estate boards reported that the Multiple Listing Services in June declined from May levels and sales for the first half of 2013 have fallen significantly below last year's activity.

If you plan to enter the market today or the near future, I am happy to narrow down your criteria needs and we can work together to buy or sell a home.

This 36 storey residential building has striking new architectural design styles and will be adjacent to Emery Barnes Park. This will add a new striking view to the neighbourhood and help revitalize some of the older buildings in the area.
