The Two Dorothies – Vancouver Sun October 3, 2016
The twin Tudor homes were Kerrisdale landmarks for more than eight decades.
On Monday morning, they were plucked from their foundations at 2827 and 2837 West 43rd Ave. and moved a couple of blocks north to 2820 West 41st, where they will be part of a new, eight- unit development.
Both homes were slated for demolition last year, when developer Trasolini Chetner purchased them for $1.95 million apiece and announced plans for two new 4,500-sq.-ft homes.
But there was a public backlash and the houses were on Vancouver’s heritage registry, which offered them some protection. So the developer worked out a deal with the city to move the Two Dorothies to the new site.
