And here's how Renfrew Centre is looking today. A quick shot that I took from the Skytrain as it was coming into Renfrew Station (going west).

Wow! Thanks for the photo. I haven't been by there in a while and it's great to see that it's almost topped out. This is a nice addition to that office node area.

Articles on shipping container homes:

http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2...ss-canada.html

Didn't realize it was built so long ago:


Darryl Dyck/The Canadian Press
Workers guide a recycled shipping container onto a lot where Canada's first multi-home recycled shipping container housing project
is being constructed in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, B.C., on Friday November 30, 2012.

I don't think I saw this posted anywhere. My bad, if it was.

Boffo held an open house for their planned development at Commercial & Venables. I don't mind a thin tower here (12 storeys, no more), but I think the 7 storeys fronting Venables might be a bit much, even if it's set back.

I like this one. Unfortunately this is in Nimby central. Wonder what kind of flaks Boffo will be getting. There aren't any serious developments around here for decades.

Nice, thanks!

I like the curvey look of this "top heavy" building better than 745 Thurlow.

I think that's because the light industrial area around there is being up-zoned generally.
There are several other projects in the area that are 6 storeys or taller.
