Hey, your relentless badgering ended up changing my tune re: the service station's value. I'd love for it to be relocated somewhere.

I am strongly in favour of a re-purposing of the building or at least a portion of it. I think it could make a pretty awesome picnic structure in a park. It is an iconic shape of the old Pacific 66 chain.


i definitely like the idea of reusing the existing neon sign somewhere on the new building

Not sure why it just dawned on me how similar the podium is to the Vancouver St. side of the 989 Johnson podium. Do we think this might actually be straying into too similar territory? These buildings are in the same neighbourhood. Maybe switch out the white for another colour?

There was a greater difference from 989's podium on the first rendering that was posted, most especially the 3rd floor windows facing Cook Street.

I am less impressed with this version

(and I say that as a fan of 989).

The first rendering also has a better rendering of View Street...come on people! But absolutely, I quite like that first rendering. Love the podium design.

Pluto’s doesn’t seem too thrilled about the rendering reveal. A post from their account on our Instagram account was just a middle finger emoji.

The owner has also voiced his disdain for “condos” in the past.

Know it all.

This just makes me even more curious about the imagine on Sakura's website

I wonder how many of his customers live in condos? One less than before I can assure him.
