Some very nice angles, especially around Granville. Thanks! The city simply makes sense and is very well planned. I can't get enough pictures of lesser known apartment construction projects as they seem to be a cue of where modern architecture is heading.

I was a bit taken aback by the generic look of Whistler (it has this in common with Vail or some of the "brutalist" villages in the French Alps). I had hoped the Olympics would have led to more ambitious and less arbitrary architecture.

thanks - yes i was expecting whistler to be different - it seemed a little dull and lacklustre to me and nothing special as I had imagined it to me since it gets so much praise

Great photos! Lots of new developments too. I'd probably not recognize it anymore. I was there a couple of times (early 2010s) but I tend to spend too much time in places I like. I remember visiting the Public Library main branch and taking lots of photos and basically spending there a whole afternoon..
Wonderful to see this many places!

Whistler was designed for Winter. I guess it's not as nice without the snow at resort level. Same thing with other Intrawest developments, including their recent forays in the Alps. Cute snowman, by the way!

If it were less busy, I'd like it more. At least it's not a generic green glass condo!

I hope my friend and I made the right decision. We will be in Vancouver for the Fireworks festival and the Pride event, we'll be staying at the Metropolitan Hotel.
