“For the last three years, Andy Yan, a researcher and urban planner with Bing Thom Architects, has been mapping the assessed values of single-family residences in the city of Vancouver.
You see his latest efforts here today. …

Perhaps of interest because this is the same Vancouver Sun columnist who just one year ago wrote:
“Vancouver, of course, will always be the centre of things in the Metro area. It has history and critical mass on its side. And by its very nature, it is going to attract people who want to come here and live in the city.
… the market will propel any kind of property here into the stratosphere.”
