Hello Summer It’s Hot Out There!

The temperature is not the only thing rising out there… Vancouver’s urban renaissance continues full steam ahead with multiple large projects underway and working through the permitting process. In theory it is conceivable that there could be as many as eight tower cranes at least briefly working together in the Esther Short Neighborhood. It will be a timing thing, one or more existing cranes may come down before some of the pipeline projects are erecting theirs. Vancouver’s Downtown/Midtown area has had at least one operating tower crane continuously for over six years now! That might be a record.

Block Ten Project, June 21st, 2021

I mentioned last time that ground was broken on Block 3 and now the CCRA just ran their eval on the very large Terminal One project that frankly looks real nice and offers a very nice community benefit of masses of public parking and a gorgeous public courtyard, grand staircase, and future bridge link to the new gateway district currently in city planning stages. Holland seems to be moving at light speed topping out both towers on Block Ten already!

This summer should be hot from the sun and hot in the construction scene.

In urban condo news things were quiet last week but a couple units came on the market and immediately went pending. So the inventory has remained steady.
