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.

Happy New Year

Do we really want to start out a fresh new year with a scene like this?

 Here is what the missing house looked like in December 2013:


 
Other than the added dormers, these two neighbour houses are mirror images of each other.

Now the "twin" stands alone.

The house on the left (4719 Collingwood) was likely torn down in late December 2013.
