Now that I've been using Amazon for more and purchases I've come to realize that it's just like any other large retailer. Some thing are cheaper, some thing are more expensive, others still waaay more expensive. No real rhyme or reason, but I think they use VHF's method of insta-pricing® based on demand/inventory/whatever.

Know it all.
Citified.ca is Victoria's most comprehensive research resource for new-build homes and commercial spaces.

In some odd cases, depending on the item, it can be cheaper to order from amazon.com, even after the exchange rate and shipping cost/time (if it can even be shipped to Canada). If the base price is low and the shipping cost not crazy high, it works out better than ordering from amazon.ca.

Tinseltown (International Village) in Vancouver, as as the adjoining T&T Grocery Store building is for sale. Article claims the best thing to do is tear it down.

Still feels like it is brand new to me as it was the new place in the city when I moved away from Vancouver.

It has a whole new look!

I know! Loblaws should do T&T at the proposed Superstore location in Saanich.

It's designated mixed use, so maybe one day there will be something like the brand new Kensington Gardens in Vancouver, which just opened last month.

There are cars in the above image, so we know this will never be part of the CoV's future.

^ Not CoV, so maybe the District of Saanich will be a little easier to work with?

It would almost have to be be easier with any other municipality than Victoria.

Actually the cars are fading away, which is exactly in line with the CoV's future.

And those trees down the centre must be cherry blossom, since they are disappearing too...

That image is what I have always dreamed for as a replacement to Harris Green Village. Hotel in one tower, residential for the rest. Beautiful!

^ That's what has happened to almost all of the strip malls in Richmond. Three more have been torn down in the last couple months, the amount of new development along No. 3 Road due to the Canada Line is absolutely incredible. Richmond Centre will be doing a partial demolition soon for their 12 new towers, and Lansdowne Centre is working their way through the planning stages for something like 24 towers on a completely redeveloped property.

And of course a bit north of that, back in Vancouver along Cambie, the massive redevelopment of Oakridge will be unfolding. Rapid transit has a way of spurring development along its route.

^ Work at Oakridge has already started, I think they've pre-sold all of the units in the first two towers already.

 

Lots of new development up Cambie, including two projects that will each construct a new Canada Line station. Developer contributions have also funded a fifth station in Richmond, at Capstan Way. Construction on that should likely begin within the next year or so.

It’s cool that I’m basing my retirement on selling my piece of Parkside Place when LRT ends up going up Douglas street, right?
