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 Chaldecott Street

The typical bungalow at 4466 Chaldecott Street was torn down during June or July 2015. It was built in 1958 on a 54x122.1 foot lot, renovated, and sold for $2,380,000 in September 2013. The street is a quiet one and short, leading to the Chaldecott Park. Unfortunately, I failed to get a photo of it before it was torn down, so if you want to see a photo, you have to resort to looking for it on the web. Occasionally, I leave town, and things fall apart!
