Does 'Pre Construction' mean demolition or site prep ?

Hello dudes, it was definetly a pleasure for me to have spent some of my days living in a city like Vancouver. I went there last year and stayed for 6 months. All I can is that it was amazing. Since the first time I went to Grandville skytrain station and looked at the construction the Georgia Residences I found out that it wouldn't be so bad if I just took a stroll around the city. That was pretty much what I did ever since. some couple of questions: Did they finally finished up with Georgia? What about that street restoration close to Chapters, Did they finish that too? The other thing I can recall is that they were building a sort of garden nearby, right? Whenever I go to a bookstore here in Brazil and look for a book of architecture there are always some examples of good architecture stated by some experts. I've also heard that there is a plan to make vancouver the greenest city on planet. How is it going? I mean, is your mayor taking that seriously?
see ya!! Sorry for my english which Got a bit rusty since I left the city

Not a lot of Vancouverites on this site I guess... I don't spend a lot of time downtown, but that Georgia Hotel building is done, as well as the street work on Howe as far as I know. Regarding the greenest city plan... the mayor is totally serious from what I can tell. Whether that translates into the greenest city by 2020?? I doubt it. I think Reykjavik (Iceland) will have that honour for awhile. I've seen Vancouver in various top greenest cities articles, but who knows how well things are measured? Other than hydro power, which we've had for a hundred years or so, I really don't see Vancouver as a leader in anything else. Bike usage? Nope. Transit? Nope.... We've still got a long ways to go.

Bjarke Ingels Vancouver tower one step closer to reality

The 497-foot tower starchitect designed Bjarke Ingles Vancouver tower aka BIG Tower has been given a huge thumbs up from the city’s Urban Design Panel. If approved for construction it would rise 52 storeys from a narrow base next to the Granville Bridge and curve up to the top.

Partnering with Westbank, the BIG tower promises to add a foreign twist to Vancouver’s bland (but increasingly more interesting) skyline and create a new identity for that part of downtown. The 650,000 square foot complex will contain shopping, social housing and market rental apartments and will also make good use of the area around and under Granville Street Bridge. Furthermore, it won’t be your typical green/blue glass condo so it will break the monotony we have come to expect from Vancouver buildings.

This project isn’t without its detractors. City advocacy group called CityHallWatch believes the towers height is not right for the neighbourhood. I think the the advocacy group may be in the minority this time, projects like this don’t come around too often and would be an instant architectural landmark.

The project is still a long way from breaking ground, it now enters the open house and public hearings stage.

I actually like the blue/green glass condo uniformity y'all have there in Vancouver. It's something you never see anywhere else in the world. I'm kind of sad about the prospect of starchitecture breaking this mold.

Has there been any recent news on the newly named Trump Tower Vancouver? Would it be inappropriate to add the Surrey Civic Tower to this run down, or is it just Vancouver proper?

If it is only Vancouver proper, then I may move ahead with a large plan I have been thinking about. It would need to be added to the right spot ( Y.F. I would need your help with that ) . What I plan to do , is add a sub category to Vancouver in the British Columbia section. Once you click on B.C. then Vancouver you will have new options of sticky threads. I'll make them and add the interesting photo's and facts about each city that comprises the GVR, ( population, growth numbers, tourist attractions, historical info etc.) and as much new project run down as I can. IT will be a big project to make the individual threads from Abbotsford to White Rock may take a while but it will be a lot of fun, and of course any help is welcomed as well. Its been awhile since I contributed in a big way, so why not come back in style.

This thread is for the city of Vancouver exclusively. The suburbs would require their own threads if so desired.
