Photo of the Week: Vancouver High Rise

We were struck by how modern downtown Vancouver is. There are none of the ugly brown 60s tower blocks that you find in other cities – it’s all shiny, sleek high rises that shimmer as the sun sets.

  1. Dear Simon & Erin,

    Your photos of Vancouver are making me long for my birthcity. 🙂

    Your photo of the building is of Park Place on Burrard Street in downtown Vancouver. I’m glad you enjoyed downtown, though some first-time visitors have “complained” to me about all the new towers with “boring” blue-green glass … you know, to reflect the light from all those trees, water, mountains, and sky …

    p.s. apparently, your version of “CommentLuv” is out of date – you might want to look into that, too!

    • I’m not usually a fan of downtown areas of big cities, preferring the quirkier neighbourhoods, but we thought Vancouver’s was lovely – beautiful buildings and an amazing setting.
