It has already scared away everyone from the upper and lower causeways.  ;)

That CGI/CIBC building is surely an eyesore. Thankfully the Yates on Yates and its sister building are short and far enough not to make any major impact from this vantage point, although I still say that from close-up, those are really ugly buildings.

I am a little surprised that this building has not sold out yet. Wonder if there is some buyer remorse with the neighborhood changing.

With the Old Town intact, Victoria here does have a bit of London feel to it, doesn't it? Too bad it wasn't built like this all the way further inland.

Only if one has never visited or seen pictures of the real London (UK).

We stopped going downtown unless absolutely necessary. It has just become too grubby.

I have on multiple occasions, and still feel that way from that little section of Victoria.
