Assessed Value Comparisons (2005)

This paper compares the assessed value of Heritage Register, designated heritage and non-heritage properties in four Vancouver neighbourhoods (Strathcona, Kitsilano, Mount Pleasant & Hastings Sunrise). Through tax roll information and neighbourhood drive-arounds, buildings were selected that were similar in size and included houses legally protected through VHF grants.

The study shows that between 1999 and 2005 the Heritage Register and designated heritage houses increased almost the same (42.1% & 42% respectively), while non-heritage houses increased at a slightly slower rate (39%).
