Legal Fees to Save the Forrest Baker House

The Forrest- Baker House in West Vancouver is SLATED FOR DEMOLITION JANUARY 2020!

In recognition of its importance the City of West Vancouver has put a 60 day halt on the demolition clause so we have to act fast! 

This house was designed by famous architect Ron Thom with Dick Mann Thompson, Berwick and Pratt and it won the Massey Medal for Architecture in 1964. It was Ron Thom's favourite house that he designed and its heritage value to the community of West Vancouver is absolutely priceless. This is the history and culture of West Vancouver, this house is a stunning example of West Coast Modernism and deserves to be protected.

Our action plan is to have have the house expropriated from the current owner to the city at fair market value so that it can be officially protected and then sold on to safe hands.

To get started we need to raise funds to get a lawyer to facilitate the expropriation of the house. 

For more information about the house you can find it on the West Coast Modern League website by clicking HERE.
