Photo update | March 29th, 2011

A small update to supplement the Gaoler's Mews photos from the other day.

An effective subversive counter-poster campaign is under way against the fear mongering posters resisting change in the DTES and Chinatown.

Portland Hotel Society put up this sign in the Concord Pacific owned lot that it is trying to give the City as part of a package of goodies in exchange for getting out of Concord's commercial density requirement on their sites at the Cambie bridgehead.

Hmmm...looks a little like a streetfront of an Apple Store. I'm intrigued with this given the spiral staircase going downstairs. An underground Apple Store has worked quite well for NYC and would give Apple plenty of logo advertising space on a prime office tower street -- sortof like their Sydney, Australia location.

The fly-throughs by this firm are unbelieveably stupid, especially when it comes to what parts of the "architecture" they focused on, like the signage pylon for IKEA

I wouldn't support cluttering up this section of Georgia with at-grade retail.

I'm intrigued by what appears to be a fully framed roof. Looks like if they have any trouble leasing out the restaurant space the patio can easily be enclosed by just laying down some glass.

Anybody knows what is happening to the white building on the East side of Abbott/Cordova, next to Jules in Gastown? It is undergoing major renovations at the moment.

It's being restored, it was supposed to happen last year. It received funds from the city's fascade rehabilation fund.

Did anyone notice in the fly-through that one of the shots has an actual Apple Store logo hanging in the front? In the rest it is not there.

That staircase is so Apple too. Either they are trying to make it look like an Apple Store or it is one.

It's the former.

Brookfield would love to have Apple at that location, but ain't gonna happen.

Vancouver will soon see a new type of social housing for disadvantaged women — an apartment complex made out of shipping containers.

The structure — the first of its kind in Canada — will occupy a currently empty lot at Jackson Avenue and Alexander Street in the Downtown Eastside.

Suites made from the containers will cost about $85,000 per unit, a fraction of the cost of constructing a new apartment unit in a standard building.

The container development will consist of six self-contained suites, each with a kitchen and full bathroom. The units will be fully insulated and will each have a floor-to-ceiling window.

"They'll be stylized and they'll definitely be funky but we didn't want to disguise them," said Janice Abbott, of the Atira Women's Resources Society, which is managing the project.

Does anyone know if Cadillac Fairview has anything planned for Vancouver?

I've noticed that they are developing quite a few properties in Ontario, but nothing in B.C.
