To the south of Vancouver across the Fraser River is the City of Richmond, home to the Vancouver International Airport and a population consisting of more than 40% Chinese. Due to the makeup of the population, this area is suitable for Chinese immigrants as most facilities provide services that are catered to the Chinese.
Richmond offers a variety of housing types, from detached homes, townhomes, to condos. No. 3 Road, also known as downtown Richmond, is predominantly occupied by new condominiums due to the proximity to a plethora of shopping outlets, restaurants, and public transportation. Moreover, new development is expected in years to come. Other notable areas are Terra Nova, Quilchena, Steveston, Broadmoor, and Seafair.
