7400 Granville Street: Block Of Houses Being Torn Down

Insulation tossed through glassless windows pile up outside houses on the 7400 Granville Street Block. The houses are being torn down to make way for a new multiple dwelling townhouse development. It is not unusual to see houses come down within a week of being gutted but these have been sitting empty for several weeks. There is a STOP WORK IMMEDIATELY sign posted which might account for the delay.


  1. The one with the brick and stone chimney especially deserves better. I see it continues … normal and sometimes heritage homes are being replaced by modern monstrosities or tiny cubicles for the majority of folks who can’t afford them.

  2. One day we won't recognize Vancouver anymore. I agree with Penelope on her comment.
