According to neighbours walking a dog, this house was torn down today, January 28, 2015, and prior to the demolition, a worker spent several weeks removing things from the house to recycle. This may be due to the new regulations regarding demolitions.
The BC Assessment site reported that the house was sold in June 2014. In September I saw evidence of someone moving out; this photo is from September 2014.
The house was built in 1939 on a 49.5x130 foot lot. The house and garage were last assessed at $28,300 whereas the land value exceeded $2M. The location is on a quiet 2-block street stretching from Memorial West Park to Pacific Spirit Park.
