The irony

November 4th, 2022 — This house in the 3500 block of West 26th Avenue was demolished today. Below is what it looked like a month ago. It will be replaced by a larger home with three suites and maybe a laneway house. The irony is that this block was recently rezoned for six story apartments so the new house will certainly be demolished again, possibly in less than a decade.

Five houses gone

October 16th, 2022 — Debris piles from the demolition of four houses in the 3600 block of Arbutus Street. A fifth house at the end of the block, shown below, will be demolished tomorrow. Two six-story rental apartment buildings will be built in their place.
