Recent development that was designed to face the Arbutus corridor, even when it was unused, decrepit, weed-strewn and rusting, was the right decision. Offices and suites facing the greenway will be the most valuable.
The temporary path is not complete. Jersey barriers block the way at the cross-streets; signs say pedestrians and cyclists should not do the obvious thing and cross the arterials at mid-block. Instead, jog down to the signaled intersections. Which they don’t.
They do the obvious thing.
Arbutus has been transformed once already.
And there’s lots more to come.
