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.

It's Getting Boring

This house built in 1952, as were almost all of them in the several block area near St. George's Senior School, was located in an area of transition because of the ability to build quite a large house on these 52 foot wide lots. The replacement house on the left was built in 2012, but the original house on the right is still there (although not for long).

Sold in September 2013 and demolished in September 2015. Will any of these bungalows remain?
