I walked by the Cherry Bank's Sales Centre earlier today and it looked like it was open (people inside, architectural model, etc)... it's located on Fort Street just east of Cook.

It has a whole new look!

AHHH!...

Perhaps one of those location decision's made by the "powers that decide"..

Remember you site location principles in urban and regional geography..

Doesn't the developer have an office near by?

And, its at the end of Antique Alley.. and on the way to The AGGV and Crigdarich...

I'm still confused by The Wing ad where it says EXPANSIVE WINDOWS. I thought they were all 12"x12"

^Maybe they meant to say "see the expansive windows of Parc Residences across the street".

Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

I am sure anything seems expensive to someone who invested in this project :)

Are we taking the Cherry Bank seriously or are we just chatting as we wait in line until we see some more details?

Can't take anything seriously these days.

Serious -- oh well. Sure, we can take Cherry Bank seriously, although did you all notice how their rendering literally whitewashed the next door Savoy? Like, d'uhr, what were they thinking? That their future clientele won't want to live next door to a big brown building? Sheesh.

We may have to get the old gang together and infiltrate the sales office to steal some photos.

We did this with the Concert sales office in False Creek in 2005. The dozen or so of us split into groups, with some of us distracting and flirting with the sales girls, some milling about innocently acting as blockers while the others snapped photos of the architectural models, ignoring the no photography signs.

It was a textbook operation--one part The Magnificent Seven, one part The Guns of Navarone.

No sales office is safe from us.

Jada, Dylan, Derf...are you in...or are you out?

Give 'em credit for not rendering it in the middle of pristine wilderness, as far too many developers like to do...

Do we really need pictures of the new building that bad? I thought we had one of it right here.

I went in to the sales centre briefly today and saw that the one-bedrooms start at $530,000. They top out at over a million.

:shock: Eeek...

Hmm, maybe that area (w/ Astoria, Belvedere, Park..., Aria, etc.) will shape up as an excellent location for an Apple Store?

(Just trying to see the bright side, from a non-condo-buyer's perspective!)

It sure didn't look that yellow when it was presented to APC. I would have said something....
