The housing stock in the Dunbar area of Vancouver has undergone significant change in the past five years. Originally a working class neighbourhood with many quite modest homes surrounded by lovely gardens, it is now a neighbourhood that 99% of the people working in Vancouver cannot afford because the replacement homes are built to the maximum footprint and cost millions. Greenspace has been reduced. Included on this website are photos of many (not all) of the disappeared houses.

A Tiny House

Would this small and modest house be left standing in the Dunbar area?

It appears to be a valued home in the Mole Hill area of downtown Vancouver.  And, to be transparent, the house looks tiny, but it extends all the way to the lane, with the back part being a garage.  It is not without greenspace, though, as shown by the attractive and good-sized front garden.
