But now we have an opportunity to add some much-needed green space.

 

I agree.

That would connect Beacon Hill Park, St. Ann's, the old Crystal Motel site, Thunderbird Park , and the museum breezeway right through to the harbour.

^ Good lord, even I don't think we need more green space right there. ;)

I'm hoping he's joking.  I've never heard anyone says, gee, why can't we walk from Beacon Hill Park to St. Ann's to xxx etc. without touching pavement...  Only .05% of the population can even walk that far.

I'd like to see a second deck that covers all of downtown. Just a big lawn. Nothing else.

Right. When looking down from an airplane, a giant green field is the only thing that you would see. Workers & shoppers would love it because it would be a readily accessible escape out of downtown Victoria's Bladerunner-esque nightmare. It would also offer some great views of the green spaces along the shores of the inner harbour.

Can you imagine the views of the Sooke Hills from such a thing? This would get Victoria on that world class map.

I LOVE it. I swear this is how some on Victoria City Council view downtown.

Lisa Helps is the only one at city hall that has successfully turned one of ROBIN KIMPTON'S dlapidated buildings into a proud part of our community. But more work need to be done.

Chica says "Every thread" is a bit of an exaggeration, only on the few threads relating to the neglect of our heratige buildings and the up coming election of those politicians who need to do somthing aboot them.

  There are a great many other subject threads that you can engage in if this one bores you :)

Chica says "not a fan of Mayor McCheese.

We are surprised that few have recognised Lisa Helps is only one at city hall who has successfully rescued one of Kimptons delapidated buildings,

and even more surprised to hear folks like your self attack us for suggesting the above, "endless spam" ? A grand total of 14 posts on Chica's account

Chica says  "did not mean to bother you, we are a bit confused though, is this not a thread to disscuss the 'endangered buildings' ? and are the politicians that we are aboot to elect not responsible for the city that contains these buildings ?

 

FYI this is Chica's questioning look :)

On the CBC this morning they were talking about the Anglican School in James Bay on Niagara Street. Anglican Diocese wants to demolish/develop/sell the lot. Sounds like they actually would be happy to save the building, but want to sell the property. City is working with them to figure out how to save the old building and allow for other construction on the lot. The Diocese will put the proceeds from the sale into maintenance of Christ Church Cathedral.

It's a pretty cool looking older building on Niagara. I hope they can figure a way to incorporate it into a newer development. I think most people's attachment to it is not so much the building itself, as their emotional memories of scouts, pre-school and the sorts of activities the church ran in the building.


Don't be so sure.:cool:

Fernwood NRG saved that building.

yes they did...

and so, will it take another grassroots effort to save the other historical buildings currantly being neglected by this slumlord?

1176 Yates was build by Robert Dusmuir as a nursing residence, ( the current owner did not even know that lil tid bit )
