Jens von Bergmann ran the numbers on land use in various municipalities in Metro Vancouver. The City of Vancouver is particularly interesting since it has so little land area left undeveloped.
|Use||City of Vancouver land|
|single-family attached houses and duplexes||34.0%|
|roads and right-of-way||28.1%|
|recreation, open space, and natural areas||15.2%|
|low-rise apartments (residential or mixed-use)||4.1%|
|high-rise apartments (residential or mixed-use)||1.9%|
