One-quarter of detached Vancouver homes could be torn down by 2030

Various media outlets reported on work by Joseph Dahmen, a UBC architecture professor, that suggests a quarter of detached homes in Vancouver could be torn down in the next 13 years.

Dahmen created a tool that forecasts how many homes could be demolished based on “relative building value” or how much a home is worth relative to the value of the land it sits on.
