Neighbourhood Growing Pains

Whether you or I agree with, like it or not, the old has to make way for the new. This can be a heartbreak but that’s the reality. Imagine a city where nothing ever replaced the old. Who would want to live there?

New developments make for a more sustainable neighbourhood and the amount of steps and processes a developer has to go through could make anyone go bonkers.

There is no shortage of people apposing development but in reality.. if it wasn’t for redevelopment, those same individuals would not be living where they currently live. That block of 10 or so homes used to be part of a larger parcel of land where at the time before redevelopment.. was only one home. Thankfully for redevelopment, more people can enjoy the lifestyle of their neighbourhoods of choice.

In another few decades, so too this building (which is modern at the time), will go towards redevelopment.

This block of businesses on Dunbar Street in Vancouver may have a few more years of community life right now, but unfortunately (or should I say fortunately) they too will transition into a better living community for all to enjoy.
