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.

Another one on Collingwood Street


This house situated next to a lane at 4961 Collingwood had a large footprint but will probably be replaced by a house with an even larger footprint. As is the case with many other houses just prior to demolition, it was rented. Torn down during the first half of June 2013.
