Business Lawyers on Cambie & Broadway
One of the busiest intersections in Vancouver, Broadway and Cambie is home to numerous businesses in a wide variety of industries. It’s called the “Heart of Vancouver” by the Business Improvement Areas of Vancouver for a reason. Aside from being home to Vancouver City Hall, it is located next to Downtown Vancouver, which would lower the chance of encountering traffic congestion. Our Vancouver lawyers in the Cambie Village can help you draft up any type of legal contract and take care of all the legalities that come with starting a small business, running a business, litigation, and purchasing and selling a business.
Our Business Legal Services Include:
- Registered & Records Office
- Share Transfers
- Purchase and Sale of Business Assets
- Contract Drafting (Partnerships, Joint Ventures, Bespoke)
- Purchase and Sale of Shares
- Shareholder Agreements
- Employment Agreements (Non-Competes, NDAs)
In the Cambie Village area, there are almost 50,000 residents, and that number is growing three times faster than the rest of Vancouver. A significant number of these residents are between the ages of 30 to 34 years old. Most of the residents in this area have university degrees and an average income higher than the rest of Metro Vancouver. What all this means for your business is that by setting up shop on Broadway and Cambie, you will have a customer base of young and educated people with more disposable income than average. The area also borders the affluent South Cambie and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods.
The City of Vancouver is planning to invest at least $450 million on developing the area with mixed-use buildings, having retail and office space on the first two floors. The process has already started, since older retail buildings have been demolished to pave a way for the future.
Home of the Canada Line at the Broadway & Cambie SkyTrain Station, Vancouver is also planning on constructing a Broadway subway line that will intersect with the SkyTrain line, making the intersection an extremely high-traffic hub in a decade’s time. Zoning in the area specifically encourages pedestrian-oriented businesses that serve local needs. It seems to be working, as 85% of businesses in the area are small with fewer than 20 employees. With such significant investment and development planned by one of the largest cities in Canada, the sooner you set up shop the better.

Right now, 85% of housing in the Broadway & Cambie area is apartments, which is slightly more Vancouver’s average of 80%. Most of the housing was built after 2001, in order to meet the housing demand that was caused by the establishment of the Canada Line SkyTrain. The plan for the next few decades is to increase by 5,000 rental units, 2,000 more multi-family lots and 2,800 social housing units. That translates into tens of thousands of new residents, leading the neighbourhood bigger than your average city in BC.
Along with accommodations, the city plans on adding over 20 acres in park space and upgrading/expanding the bicycle network to make commuting even easier for locals. Factor in the incoming Broadway subway line, living on Broadway & Cambie will keep you conveniently connected to the rest of Vancouver without having a car.
Housing prices on Cambie have been increasing over the past years by around 8%. In the first quarter of 2020, a typical 2-bedroom condo cost approximately $1.1 million to purchase. Even with all of the additional residences slated for construction, demand will only go up in this area as it undergoes development.
