Vancouver – “The house sold in March, 2012 for $2.498 million. In the current west side real estate market, that’s lot value, and the house is being torn down.
Old houses are being demolished all over Vancouver — the city issued 974 demolition permits for single and two family homes in 2015.
But this house was supposed to have some protection. Constructed in 1915 for $2,000, it was one of the first houses built on West 31st, and the only one that was given Heritage B status by the city.”
