South of 16th Avenue - between Oak and Arbutus Streets

Frederick Todd, 1907-09

In 1907, Richard Marpole, general superintendent of the Canadian Pacific Railway initiated the development of a new prestigious residential area for Vancouver’s wealthy citizens. Inspired by the new Garden City developments in England, Montreal landscape architect Frederick Todd planned the neighbourhood, integrating its curved streets with the topography. The portion on the east side of Granville Street is anchored by a grand oval park space called The Crescent.
