Shaughnessy Listing Reports
Shaughnessy was developed in three distinct stages.
The initial development was First Shaughnessy whose boundaries were from W 16th to W 25th Ave and from Arbutus to Oak. Currently this area is being proposed as a Heritage Zone which would effectively ban any demolition of pre 1940 homes.
Of the 595 houses, 329 were built before 1940, therefore this proposal is very controversial.
Second Shaughnessy encompasses the area from W King Edward to W 33rd Ave and from Arbutus to Oak St. Within this area is Shaughnessy elementary school, Little Flower Academy, York House, Quilchena Park and Devonshire Park.
Third Shaughnessy commences at W 33rd ave to W 41st Ave and goes between Cypress and Oak St. Within this zone is the famed Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, a lushly landscaped 20 hectacre facility including elegant landscapes with plant species representing ecosystems ranging from the himilayas to the Mediterranean, from Louisiana swamps to the Pacific Northwest. Escape the bustle of the city in their Shaughnessy restaurant located in the heart of the gardens.
