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.

Changes on Wallace Street

This unusual  house was on the corner of Wallace and 19th (3902 West 19th Avenue).  It appears to have been built in the 1970's, or perhaps it was an extensive remodeling of an older house.  In any case, it was torn down in 2011 or 2012.

Built in 1946 on the corner of West 41st Avenue and Wallace Street, at 5687 Wallace.  It is on a wide lot of 78 feet that could have been split into two lots, but only one house appears to be under construction.  Torn down in late 2011 or early 2012.
