On the way to Swartz Bay

The mountains of Ruckle Provincial Park on Saltspring Island loom on the horizon as we threaded our way through the gulf islands on our way between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay aboard Coastal Celebration. The light was soft and gorgeous on a bright overcast day. What a beautiful view!! I think I need to live out on the coast.

False Creek Yacht Club / Granville Street Bridge

Filed under: Architecture, Documentary, Hand of Man, Industrial, Sony RX100 III, Travel, Water — collin orthner @ 2:24 pm

The False Creek Yacht Club’s building had it’s grand opening May 5th, 1990. The building was designed by Bing Thom Architects and construction commenced in the spring of 1988.

 

 

 

On February 4, 1954, the current Granville Street Bridge, costing $16.5 million, opened. This is actually the third bridge at this location. The first was a wooden structure completed in 1888 and opened in 1889, and the second made of steel in 1909. A million cars would cross over the bridge in its first month. The city of Vancouver funded the bridge itself. It crosses False Creek and Granville Island, connecting downtown Vancouver to the Fairview and South Granville neighbourhoods and shopping districts.

Silver Sea

Another fine condo/apartment building along the waterfront of False Creek in Vancouver is this one, named “Silver Sea”. It sits almost under the Granville Bridge and is right across the water from the fabulous Granville Island Market. A 3 bedroom 1840sq/ft furnished apartment rents for $7900/mth, so maybe not one I’ll be booking anytime soon!

The Erickson

Filed under: Architecture, Documentary, Hand of Man, Sony RX100 III, Travel — collin orthner @ 1:00 am

The Erickson is an 18 floor luxury condo unit along the waterfront in the False Creek North neighbourhood of Vancouver. It is a design by the famous Vancouver architect Arthur Erickson. We were walking along the seawall one evening not too long ago and I made a quick grabshot of the building on my way by. There are many architectural gems in Vancouver and I am pretty sure I could spend a lot of my time wandering around looking for the best spots to line up images.
