Mayor Gregor Robertson's home sells for $1.95 million
Mayor Gregor Robertson’s family home has sold for the $1.95 million asking price, his office confirmed Friday.
The six-bedroom home was built in 1912 near Douglas Park and was on the market for two weeks.
Robertson said earlier this week he and his wife were looking to downsize now that their children had graduated high school.
The family plans to move to a Kitsilano condo near York Avenue, close to the proposed Point Grey bike route.
That proximity means Robertson will not be voting on issues relating to the controversial project.
When consulted, the city solicitor found “no legal conflict” with Robertson voting on the Point Grey Road — Cornwall Avenue Corridor Active Transportation Project, which would connect pedestrians and cyclists between Jericho Beach and the Burrard Bridge with traffic-calming measures like painted or separated bike lanes.
In a written statement this week, Robertson said he voluntarily recused himself out of an “abundance of caution.”
