From Vivian Street east to Knight Street and from 49th Avenue south to Marine Drive, the Fraserview area is located on Vancouver’s southern slope. It overlooks the Fraser River and some of Vancouver’s best southern views. This community holds a long history that will continue to develop throughout the years.
Fraserview was a community filled of modest homes and scattered farms that was originally part of the South Vancouver Municipality. Many homes here have been built in the old Craftsman style, which gives the neighbourhood a glimpse and feel of country life.
The vast amount of forest on the bank of the Fraser River was what attracted the first group of families to settle in the Fraserview area around the 1860’s. The area was then included in the Municipality of South Vancouver after the small population established a settlement there. After the Second World War had ended the veterans returned home to a shortage of housing. Fraserview suddenly became home to 1000 new homes. Because of this large increase in housing, many residents became angry of the loss of space, therefore the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation found an extra 450 acres of land to settle the dispute. Fraserview had always had a predominant industrial presence, but since the 1980’s that industry has started to decrease.
