Hooper Building Yaletown

I was recently by The Hooper Building at 869 Beatty St in Yaletown. When this warehouse was originally converted to residential it was set up as rental unit.

Jameson House

April 4th, 2006

I was by the Jameson House presentation centre on the weekend. There was also an article in The Vancouver Sun this weekend about the project.

February 21st, 2006

I was at the Realtor's open for 33 tonight. I had the privilege of meeting Robert Wilson, President of Georgia Laine Developments. He gave me a tour of the display suite and highlighted some of the unique features of his development. This is truly a beautiful modern design. Many of the units are open concept with a divider separating the bedroom from the living room. The storage cupboards are ...
