Unlike London and New York, Vancouver is a very young city and until the nineties the average Joe could afford a detached home. The big change started with EXPO 86 and accelerated as the Brits left Hong Kong and the rest of China opened up. It also has geographical restraints that other Canadian cities don't have. Water to the west, mountains to the north and the US border to the south. The only room for expansion is higher density or up the Fraser Valley, which is some of the best agricultural land in Canada that is protected by the ALR.
