Nostalgia tour - where the glass condo began

1990's apartment towers in Vancouver... lots of green glass.

I actually think a lot of our 1990's condos are nicer than some of our new ones. From a distance, the sheer number of them sort of takes away from the quality and sensitivity that went into each tower design, lending some stigma to the "green glass condo". I also miss the ultra-thin panes of glass that they used to enclose the lobby areas with... now they always use big thick mullions for energy efficiency.
