    It's still very bad 7 out of 10 (10 being Beijing). Apparently there is a front forming that should clear the air by Friday/Saturday.

    That is a residential building designed by a world famous architect, Arthur Erickson. It's very beautiful in real life and a standout in the sea of monotonous towers.

    Ahhhh...priced out of the market again, I see...smh. I should have moved there years ago... :(
     
  13. No, just wait for the inevitable crash. There's a huge bubble in Canadian real estate now.

    West, is that you in the big hat? How do those bikes handle rough water?

    Sadly Vancouver is out of reach for most Canadians as well, all the deals are on the East Coast now (cheap waterfront).

    The borrowing rates would need to go up quit a bit before a crash was to become a reality, currently money is dirt cheap: 5 year term at 2.64% (broker rate).
    Those bikes looked like a lot of work to me, I think they are more suitable for still water. They have a thriving rental business in False Creek. I was on my own boat taking the photo.
