Andy Coupland sends in some images of proposed development projects. Here’s a proposal for the North Shore of False Cree, with what also looks to be the proposed provincial tower at what is now Robson Square.
And another image for what now appears to be Pacific Centre.
The proposed provincial government tower, at 55 storeys (I believe), was nicknamed the “Bennettscraper” by some. The Vancouver Sun published a picture of the area with a black tower superimposed over the existing structures. Rather cheekily, the paper extended the black tower, out of the modified photograph, and up to the top of the page.
This sort of thing would have been great to see in “Your Future Home: Creating the New Vancouver” exhibit at the Museum of Vancouver. There is a great history of the future of Vancouver that most Vancouverites have never seen. It might give us all a better perspective on the changes that are happening now and understanding how our vision has been sculpted over time.
