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.

Demolitions West of the Dunbar Community Centre

Close to 41st Avenue

Sold in June 2012 and demolished in early June 2013.  This house sat on a 66 foot lot, so I wondered whether it would be split into two 33 foot lots, but only one house is under construction. This lot at 5638 Crown Street is a short block away from a 10-year-old custom built home currently for sale for $3,668,000.
