Description

This building was constructed in 1945 and it was renovated in 1970. It is primarily constructed out of brick. From its construction until the 1950s, the building was occupied by a business called BC Plenty. It was then occupied by Valley Plenty from 1954 to the late 1960s and Lung Chong Co Plenty in the early 1970s. Since 1976, this building has housed a butcher shop known as Topper Poultry.

This site is part of the Chinatown Historic Area, HA-1 in the City of Vancouver’s zoning bylaw. It is included in the Vancouver Heritage Register as a recognized part of the historic neighbourhood. Other similar municipally protected sites within a Historic Area are marked on the map with an O instead of the usual Heritage Register categories of A, B, or C. Some of these sites may be newer construction but are nonetheless still protected. For more information on the bylaw that governs the Chinatown Historic Area see: https://bylaws.vancouver.ca/zoning/zoning-by-law-district-schedule-ha-1-1a.pdf
