The flurry of development in our neighborhood is not slowing down even a little bit. While a new tower is being constructed directly across the street (with all that entails, especially to those of you who live on the Hastings side), there are also preparations being made to re-do both the Empire Landmark (just up the street on Robson) and the Westin Bayshore. The building on the corner of Cardero and Alberni is also under construction.
There may be more if a local developer gets the go-ahead. There are two towers proposed to go into the space where the Chevron was and where the White Spot currently is.
Here’s the info, though no formal proposal has yet been submitted to City Hall.
We will keep you appraised of the situation as more info becomes available.
We really live in the most beautiful place in the fall!
Lots going on this month; Stanley Park Ghost Train, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Fright Nights!
We had a really fun party on the evening of August 19, on the roof of the “B” Building.
The social committee decided to do something a little more “adult” than they usually do, and so we hosted a wine-tasting party.
Attendees brought a bottle of wine in a paper bag, and an appetizer to share. We got to try all the different kinds of wine and vote on our favorites!
A fun time was had by all, including the kids who attended (and did not drink wine).
Rebecca whipped up fresh crepes for the occasion.
… and games!
The kids had fun, too, with their own non-alcoholic beverages.
