West End mansions

Vancouver’s three remaining West End mansions

The owners of two of the three West End mansions, the Abbott House at 720 Jervis Street and the Roger’s Gabriola Mansion on Davie restored their buildings using City of Vancouver incentives to cover the cost of the restoration.

The West End’s third mansion, the Gordon T. Legg residence at 1241 Harwood Street is under immediate threat of demolition since the owner’s final proposal to restore the building was turned down by Vancouver City Council in May 2011.
