An interesting part in the photos is that the foundation walls of the building were kept and used as a retaining wall. the Arbutus tree was also saved.

In case you didn't see my blog post in the Online Media thread I thought I would link it here as well. Would love to hear some more opinions on this and more thoughts on how it could still be saved!

Great observations G-Man. The exclusion of the outside is the key. It connects better to VicWesr than its own surroundings. It's great on so many levels but this I agree is its flaw now. Perhaps in 95 it made sense since its surroundings were flee bag motels but now this needs a fix. It needs connection.

I hadn't thought of that but you are right it definitely feels more connected to the Railyards than to even the townhouses across Gorge Road!

That's related to the issue of Gorge Road rising above the Selkirk property. To have built the Gateway office building and the seniors residences with street level component along Waterfront Crescent and Gorge Road would have required quite a bit more money with very little guarantee that there would have been any demand for street level retail there.

 

And then on the other side of Jutland along Gorge you have the Legion and 415 Gorge Rd E, neither of which are part of Selkirk. When/if those buildings are redeveloped that will provide an opportunity to engage the Gorge Road side of the block.
