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

Torn down in late November 2013

"Value mainly in the land" is what the real estate ad of 2012 stated of this house, probably because the lot is 55 feet wide. Address is 3345 West 24th Avenue.


This second house was sold in March 2013. It was on a small lot, but the front garden was very colourful in May 2013. The house was near Dunbar Street, at 3588 West 31st Avenue.

Both of these houses were torn down at the end of November 2013.
