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.

Three More in the West 30's



There was a white fence on which the roses climbed along the sidewalk at 4022 West 30th Avenue.  Credit for this photo goes to a Dunbar resident who captured this in June 2010.  This 50's home was torn down in 2011 or 2012.

Just down the block at 4056 West 30th Avenue was this other 50's house.  Torn down on October 15, 2012.


4024 West 32th Avenue.  An older house than the two above, it was sold in December 2010 and torn down on June 24, 2012.
