Our Urban Village, a Vancouver Cohousing Community

Location, location, location

Located near 41st Avenue at Main Street between Queen Elizabeth Park, the Punjabi Market, the new Oakridge, and the shops of Main and Fraser Streets, OUV's community is an urban walking hub.

Breathtaking views of the city, manicured gardens, multi-sport facilities, and picnic spaces — Vancouver’s central crown jewel has something for everyone.

Our resident disc golf and pickleball players can’t wait to be mere blocks away!

Main Street and Fraserhood shops

Vibrant eating spots, eclectic shopping, bakeries, breweries – and coffee – all within a quick walk, bike, or bus ride.
