I accept your challenge. What about all of the hardware on the roof of the theatre? Will residents on that side be complaining about noise? And why does the newest building in the picture have the least glass coverage?

And who is the guy in the blue shirt sitting outside on the lower roof level of 800 Yates?

 

Will residents be complaining about people in blue shirts sitting outside? Does fundamental livability not matter anymore?

Those sorts of rooftop spaces are really great. I'm liking that trend. Yello on Yates looks like it will have a good one, too. I don't understand why the Mondrian on Cook doesn't have one.

I accidentally left today's script at the coffee shop but I think this is where I normally ask why those energy efficiency concerns are only relevant in Victoria but not in Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, etc.

I walked by Yello today. They have gates up now blocking the mid-block walkway.

quick learners...

Is the walkway not a public amenity? Did the developer get some sort of variance for including it?

It will be open when it’s ready for public use. It will, however, have a set opening and closing time each day as per the one at The Falls.

why residents of the metropolitan need immediate and direct access to the BC Tel building during daylight hours is also questionable but these mid block walkways are all the rage to get simple politicians onboard.

Aren't these building in different blocks?

 

Edit: You mean the walkway along Yello that will connect View to Yates

I know you were kidding ... but holy smokes, that load of mechanical equipment on top of the Capital 6 is through the roof (literally).

 

Boilers are usually indoors not heard by passersby ... but on a hot day, with all those roof chillers running at full steam - that's going to make one heck of a lot of noise for the folks on the West side of the building ... at least above the Capital 6 roof line.

^just wait if the Jawls decide to knock down Capital 6 and build a high rise.  A great view from Yellow 10 feet over into another suite

The Metropolitan is not nearly that old (late '90s, I believe). And Google Street View shows that path between the Met and Ralph's was gated at least as far back as 2009. They just moved the gate a few feet forward last year for no discernible reason. Drives me crazy as I've always been curious where that path leads. There's no obvious exit point on the Fort St side.

 

I can at least see why they gates off the Yello walkway as it'll pass right by first-floor residences, won't it? Still, I look forward to being able to shave a solid 20 seconds off my walks to Yates St.

Oh there was a discernible reason, alright. Quite a few of them.

 

They moved it forward because that area became a hiding place for trouble makers, groups of people binge drinking, urination, drug use, drug dealing, a "come down" spot for people too high or too drunk to lumber along, fights, and refuse. It's amazing what a little nook in an urban setting under the partial cover of a tree will yield.
