Any truth to the rumour that this condo building will be themed to the musical "Newsies"?

Newsies the musical in film format, or live performance format?

The City's development tracker just says "with applicant." There was a two year gap between the first and second submissions, so doesn't look like they're in a rush.

Nat Bosa also said today that Pacific Coach Lines has been given 18 months to vacate its 700 Douglas St. location.

 

18 months?  I hope Nat Bosa does not think things work that fast in this city, lol.  His rental building will take at least three years to get approved.  Unless things are about to really change at city hall.

 

Understatement post of the year.

I walked by this morning. At least temporarily, not having the old bus depot building provides a lovely new perspective of the Crystal Garden and the Empress.
