a few from saturday - in downtown New Westminster - just 30 mins or so south east of vancouver... a nice little city on its own and one of the oldest in the area

the towers are new - the white building in front was pretty old - they have demolished about 95% of it - why they are bothering to save the little bit... it will become a shopping centre with a safeway, drug store, movie theatre complex etc.


this block is pretty much empty and a lake has formed




water feature






new west is home to some great old buildings and is used in a lot of movies and TV shows

Used to be a big paddlewheel casino tied at the dock and this building was used to access it - but the casino moved elsewhere to a land based one and it now pretty much sits empty














this is a cool old building = plans to develop it into loft apartments but never ahppend - the upper part is vacant and has been for years


this street in new west has a large concentration of bridal shops...








new condo hard to see by the pic but they have tried to tie into the street with different elements of finishing




this used to be a police station and post office and was converted to lofts












used to be my bank now its some union office as the bank shut this location down
