According to an article in The Vancouver Province, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson has recently outlined a number of “priorities” for Strathcona street. And, these new priorities could cause property values on Prior Street to go up $100,000.
The priorities outlined by Robertson follow an update from city council regarding the fate of the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts. They include reinstating parking, installing speed bumps, and a diversion of traffic along Malkin Avenue.
Strathcona resident and community organizer, Pete Fry, says that, “It’s exactly what we’ve been looking for.
According to The Province, the changes would likely be welcomed by the surrounding neighbourhood, and Dan Griffin, a realtor with Stonehouse Realty, estimates that the changes could cause property values to rise. The article notes that “property values on the interior streets are generally in the $900,000 range […] but the same houses on Prior Street are $100,000 cheaper.”
