Vancouver Special

Ryan Willms at h(y)r spotted this amazing space at 540 Beatty Street in Vancouver. Photographed by Jessica Bushey. If only Austin had raw spaces like this.

Arrgh. I was wondering why that address is so familiar. I work 1/2 block from there, and 540 Beatty has been turned into undersized, overpriced "loft conversion" condos in a bad-but-getting-better neighbourhood.

Click the "view the homes" link on the site that you'd linked to, to see what's become of that inspiring space.

What _is awesome in this neighbourhood is the Sun Tower:

I've never been inside though, so can't comment on what that's like.

I'd imagine that there's actually more raw space left in Austin. Maybe we can go for a tour next time I'm down there.
