Construction

Vancouver House

May 31st, 2017 — Vancouver House under construction on Howe Street at Beach Avenue. The lower level units of this condominium will sell in the $300,000 range probably because they will be eye level with the noisy traffic crossing the Granville Street Bridge. The higher and quieter floors command higher prices including the penthouse which is reportedly going for $20,000,000.

Bridge repairs

August 2nd, 1973 — Another picture that shows just how much things have changed since I first started photographing for newspapers. Not only was I allowed to walk out into the center lane of Lions Gate Bridge to take the picture but the workers were out on the road chipping away at the old concrete just inches away from passing trucks, buses, and cars with no barricades to protect them.

Trees cut

April 14th, 2017 — Two large trees on city property next to a construction site at 34th Avenue and Carnarvon Street in Vancouver’s westside were cut down just before the Easter weekend. There’s no outside indication the trees were dead or diseased. According to city hall, however, the trees had become unstable and dangerous because of extreme root damage which occured during construction of the house in the background. The fine to the builder could be tens of thousands of dollars per tree but in a new five million dollar home that’s peanuts.
