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.

Primarily Land Value

"Primarily land value" is what the real estate listing for this house stated in June 2013. That is a redundant statement for the Dunbar area because  houses themselves are valued very little unless built in this century or in the last years of the previous century. I took this photo in early December. The house at 3569 West 18th was torn down in late December 2013 or early January 2014.
