Laneway House Tour

Vancouver Heritage Foundation
Date of Event: 
Saturday, October 22, 2016 - 1:00pm

This self-guided tour features examples new and old of gentle densification on heritage properties. There are six lane homes all built behind existing homes, including one built as part of the restoration of the Walter and Mary Lee Chan house. All the laneway homes show how these tiny residences can be part of the conservation of a character neighbourhood, by allowing families to stay together and offering space for new families to move in. This tour offers an exceptional chance to explore the options available, both current and historic, in different residential zones. Experts in the financing and building of lane homes will be on site to answer any questions.
