At the end of 2020, the non-profit society Heritage Vancouver revealed its list of the top 10 most endangered parts of Vancouver. But this time, they’re painting with broad strokes, which means more than just specific buildings.
In fact, a fair portion of the list is devoted to things like ‘Arts & Culture’ or ‘Neighbourhood Businesses’. Importantly, they follow up with a detailed rundown of why they think it’s in danger, and steps you can take to help out.

Of course, a few specific buildings have also been included. Here’s the full list of the top 10 most endangered heritage resources in Vancouver.

Well, there you have it folks! Personally, we’re more interested in crazy postmodern buildings staying around than part of a Catholic church complex. But, that’s just or personal preference.
