Pokemon Plaza

They’re going to have to replace the sparrows with Pikachus becuase Pokemon Go has officially taken over the Olympic Village plaza.

Apartments Available at 122 Walter Hardwick

Living Room

There is currently one vacancy listed in our building, a two-bedroom unit for $1975/month.

According to the City of Vancouver’s database, 122 Walter Hardwick has:

  • 59 1-bedroom units
  • 12 2-bedroom units
  • 16 3-bedroom units
  • 14 4-bedroom units

Unfortunately, our landlords, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Affordable Housing Society, are currently using two 1-bedroom units as office space for their staff. That is in addition to the purpose-built office space on the 2nd floor. When Vancouver’s rental vacancy rates are among the lowest in the world (less than 1%), it is a shame that S.U.C.C.E.S.S. isn’t able to rent more of the units in our building to people who need them.

Red Dot Campaign

Great idea from one of our neighbours. Red dots are available next to the mailboxes in the lobby. Add one inside of your mailbox to avoid annoying junk mail.

Seawall Upgrades

False Creek Seawall

You probably have noticed that the seawall between the Olympic Village and Cambie Bridge has been upgraded to provide more space for pedestrians and cyclists. It’s still not the most scenic stretch of seawall, but it is a lot better and less congested.

Busy Seawall

Now the City of Vancouver and Park Board are looking to upgrade the section between Cambie Bridge and Burrard Bridge. I walked to Granville Island yesterday and the seawall was packed. Some more space would definitely be appreciated.

There is more information on the city’s website and a survey to share your opinions.
