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.

Of the four in this blog entry, this one has lost the most character, although it is neatly maintained.  3814 W. 23rd Avenue, torn down May or June 2011, replaced by a new house + laneway house
