Tree house

October 19th, 2023 — Construction of the Brock Hall Annex at UBC photographed from the North Parkade.

What a waste

October 14th, 2023 — This house at 4522 North West Marine Drive is being demolished so a new, probably much bigger house, can be built in its place. It was built in 1995 and sold for $4.5 million in October of 2021. The most recent assessment had the house itself valued at $455,000. That’s a lot of money for rubble.

More beds

September 27th, 2023 — More student housing being built in the 3700 block of Wesbrook Mall at UBC. Over 58,000 students attend the Vancouver campus and there are beds for just over 13,000. About 8,000 students are on the waiting list for accommodation.
