Here's the latest in real estate and neighbourhood news from our friends over at Curbed Vancouver:
SIGN OF THE TIMES: From the restored, rotating, red 'W' atop the Woodwards Tower in Gastown to Martin Creed's 'Everything is going to be alright' created in 2009 for the façade of Chinatown's oldest building, we've compiled a healthy list of Vancouver's most iconic signage, this way.
COOL MAP THING: If there is one thing locals can agree on, it's that parking in this city is not cheap. Alas, the folks over at CBC have created this ah-may-zing interactive map that shows hourly rates at popular downtown Vancouver parking spots. Check it.
CH-CH-CH-CHANGES: Sad news of the week - The Centennial Fountain located on the north plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery will be removed this fall as part of the super wacky $3.2 million redesign of the plaza.
CAMPING FOR CONDOS: Tower One of Shape Properties' Brentwood development had a great weekend. In a matter of hours, all 287 units in the 53-storey tower were sold out. Burnaby homeowner hopefuls even camped out for days - yes, days. We've got all the details, over here.
