Thanks, G!

That wall beside the Soho will eventually butt up against another building, won't it? Or does the Palladian have windows facing west?

Know it all.

I'm pretty sure Soho and Palladin will be touchy-touchy here

Yup it is a four storey addition going up against that bit but it will only as deep as the cinder blocks on the Soho.

That's an amazing shot of the Fall's excavation. I haven't been down there for a while so I am amazed at the hole dug so far. I always think and wonder what kind of things could be found if they sifted through the lower depths of the clay. If they could find old fossils of extinct marine life and things like that. It's too bad they could spend time on stuff like that. Since that would have been so close to the original Jamesbay.

On the Falls topic, I am so excited to see this completed with the Aria...Wow it's going to completey change this south side of downtown. Especially when the Crystal Court goes through and possibly the lawn bowling lawn and the triangle shaped property that the city owns!!!

great pictures g-man! Thanks for the updates!

You know, this is a weird backside of a building, but I almost don't mind it really, because the front is so great, and the back is so austere, it kinda has a weird minimalist modernist feel to it.

What building is that? ^
"Beaver, ahoy!""The bridge is like a magnet, attracting both pedestrians and over 30,000 vehicles daily who enjoy the views of Victoria's harbour. The skyline may change, but "Big Blue" as some call it, will always be there."

I should, but between Flight school and Real school, I'm a busy kid!

Not to mention the bus ride time is climbing. Just on Monday this week I went downtown, and while standing cramped with people on every conceivable side of me, the bus ride took a grand total of 1 hour and five minutes. :lol:

I'll go back down there this coming weekend -last one before returning to school. I'll go on a weekday if there is nice weather, and dammit I'll have my camera!! :)

Here's a neat pic from TripAdvisor.com:



Here's an excerpt of the review:

The harbour view provides a lot of free entertainment. One can see sea planes (which can be noisy), the Port Angeles car ferry, the high-speed Victoria Clippers (from Seattle), kayaks, sail boats, power cruisers, seals, ducks, eagles, and the occasional otter. In fact, at the next table at breakfast we encountered four bird watchers equipped with binoculars.

Pics from today:

I took this picture just to show how distinctive all of Victoria's neighbourhoods are. This was taken with me standing Downtown / Harris Green and you can clearly make out Fernwood on the Left hand side of Fort and Fairfield on the right hand side. :smt017



This is one of the cooler streets in James Bay, Saint Lawerance

Here is some Victorian revival with some modernism next door.



Yeah not sure on the style of the front but the one behind is more of the faux Victorian.

It personally am going with Edwardian then improved in the modernist era and finally a paint job in the new millenium, so that would make it:

Edmodium style
