First Shaughnessy: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Sunday, September 22, 2013; 10am to 12pm
Tourguide: Richard Keate & Margo Keate West
$10 Heritage Vancouver members; $15 non-members
Tour will meet in Angus Park, at The Crescent and Angus Drive (one block east of Granville)

This year we will explore the other side of Shaughnessy — West of Granville Street.

Tour First Shaughnessy's "garden district" with fourth and fifth generation residents Richard Keate design consultant, and his daughter Margot Keate West, architectural conservationist. They will point out the significant architecture that makes this district Vancouver's only legally recognized "residential historic character area."

Learn about the design features that distinguish these homes as a unique regional response and the families that shaped them. Find out about the role of the First Shaughnessy Advisory Design Panel that reviews new developments, and the threats to the Heritage stock, which has seen over 50 character houses come down.
