Hobbit House Remains In Proposed Townhouse Development

At long last, the developer who has been credited as saving the 84 year old Hobbit House at King Edward Avenue and Ash Street has submitted a rezoning application to the city for their proposed townhouse project. The proposal shows 20 townhouses being built in addition to five coach houses. Aside from moving the Hobbit House a couple feet, the developer plans to incorporate the house into plans and has even applied to obtain a 'heritage designation' for the building which would prevent any exterior changes to the iconic Vancouver home. · Hobbit House Saved!
