It is sad to keep seeing the destruction of so many well-appointed, architecturally unique buildings in Vancouver, just as it is sad to keep hearing about a lack of affordable housing for those who, because of the city's "freak show" housing market, can no longer afford to live here, let alone come here to take a job.
Though the destruction of some of Vancouver's housing stock allows for larger buildings, with more room inside them, this doesn't necessarily translate into an increase in affordable housing.
I am not saying anything new here, nor do I feel better for having said it.
The picture up top is of a structure -- a fence -- that will surely be torn down once the property on which it stands is developed. When that day comes -- when that fence is torn down -- I will miss it, for it is so much less than a fence to me.
