New Stuff 5 – Downtown East Side / Gastown

September 23, 2008

So much happening, it’s hard to keep up.  Here are a few samples.

The curtain has been drawn to reveal the upgraded Portland Hotel:

And just down Hastings Street, another new non-market housing development in the final stages:

Robert Fung’s Salient Group is near completion on the Paris Block and Annex:

As well as the Terminus project, including a spiffy new paint job and restoration on the Alhambra Hotel, one of the oldest buildings in the city:

From the roof of one of the condo additions, you can look down on the roof garden of the relocated Inform Interiors on Water Street:

    Great pictures of my favourite part of town. I was sad to learn that the Maple Square upgrades were pushed back till at least 2012 though as there wasn’t the money in the current capital budget. Hopefully it’s only a small setback and the area continues pushing forward.

    Love the Portland Hotel – now that’s a strong use of colour. Thanks for the updates on all the good news in that part of town.
