thomas-davidoff-ubc-photo-2016Here is information on a forum event hosted by the Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate, Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia. Moderated by Thomas Davidoff.

Small Scale Residential Development

“Builders who purchase “tear down” homes and replace them with denser or more luxurious new homes have long been an important factor in the Vancouver real estate market, but there is little data concerning this segment. In this panel, participants in the small scale residential development business will discuss the operations and economics drivers of this vital but little-understood corner of the market.”

(This forum appears to be set up to promote this type of development in Vancouver neighbourhoods. But CityHallWatch hopes speakers and participants will also look at topics like the social/environmental/cultural effects of demolition on neighbourhoods, the loss of relatively affordable original housing stock, environmental footprints of larger but often empty homes on the same sites, etc. — and how to mitigate those problems)
