1912 South Burnaby house to be demolished for future road widening

A 1912 house at 7183 Edmonds St. in South Burnaby will be demolished as part of future plans to widen Edmonds Street near Kingsway. The vacant one-and-a-half-storey bungalow is owned by city hall and deemed in fair to poor condition. It would require significant upgrades to become a city rental property, a staff report said. It has been removed by council from Burnaby's heritage inventory.

"It is of a relatively small size and does not present a sound economic basis for adaptive re-use for any public purpose," the report said.

A garage will also be demolished at 7173 Edmonds St. as part of the same initiative. The properties, both irregularly shaped, will be held as vacant grassed lot until it is required for the road upgrade project, planned for 2015.
