Four full years from start of excavation to occupancy is kind of crazy.

 

The local development scene moves fast enough to make your head spin except in those cases when it moves slower than molasses in winter.

Oh wow, it's quite thin from that angle.

Roof work has commenced on the McCall’s chapel building. Does anyone know what purpose this building will serve once the project is completed?

I think it is a commercial unit. Hopefully a restaurant.

It has a whole new look!

Whatever this space is going to be, it will apparently have a new roof.

And lots of graffiti.

It's nice to see the old Chapel being retained in its original form, and that they are making an effort to replace the rotten wood etc. If you walk past the building right now, the original woodwork on the north side can be seen from the street and its quite striking!

I have to wonder if the extensive and persistent graffiti that currently adorns (mostly) the Vancouver Street facade of the chapel will still be a problem once the Wedge project is finally complete?

There will never really be many eyes on this area. Perhaps security cameras will be installed, but I am not sure if that will actually deter the "artists" who seem to have chosen this structure as one of their favourite downtown canvasses.

FYI the Wedge is now renting and there are some residents so I guess that saga is over…
