4 million

September 6th, 2023 — This house in the 600 block West 28th Avenue sold recently for about $4 million and will be demolished as part of a land assembly and replaced with 12 garden homes.

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.

Take the bus

May 2nd, 2022 — The city of Vancouver wants people to use public transit so Translink, the people responsible for public transit, are removing bus stops along the busiest routes in the city. Possibly they think if people have to walk farther to find a bus stop they will be more likely to appreciate the ride.
