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.

Five More Houses Demolished on West 36th Avenue

This street has wide lots, so these 1 and 1.5 storey houses have been replaced by large houses.  There are four on this street already on this blog--see the index to the right.

3463 West 36th Avenue.  Built in 1924 with a lovely curved window. Torn down Summer 2011.

3815 West 36th Avenue. Torn down 2011 or 2012.

3905 West 36th Avenue. This house on the corner was torn down January 2012.

Also on a corner at 4006 West 36th Avenue. Torn down April 2012, in this case not by a developer but by the owners who have lived in the place for many years.

A charming landscape at 4036 West 36th Avenue.  Built in 1946; torn down in 2012.
