Grandview Database v. 17

We have today uploaded a new and updated version of the Grandview Database.  

This version incorporates more than 1,250 new and amended data points since the previous release.

  • Another 250 households have been entered from the 1921 Census. The 1921 census included details of house structure & size, and a raft of high quality data on rents in the neighbourhood; We estimate that we are about half way through the data collection from this invaluable source.
  • An additional 500 entries completes the 1913 City Directory and has begun work on 1914.
  • About 500 additional Building Permits have been sifted from the goldmine that is the Heritage Vancouver database of early permits.
  • A small number of additional data points have been collected from contemporary real estate listings and miscellaneous sources.

We hope you find the Database of value, and we encourage and welcome corrections, and additions.

  1. This is awesome! I have lived in several of these old houses as a tenant. I now live in 533 Woodland / 1552 E Pender, rental apartment buildings built in 1912. One of my neighbours until recently (she moved to assisted living) had lived in this building for 70 years. The property has just been sold so we’ll see if it has to be highlighted in green anytime soon…


  2. Very glad you found it of interest! I have made a note that it has been sold and would be obliged if you would keep in touch as or if things change there. Thanks!
