Vancouver Condominium Projects Cancelled: The Elyse and Montgomery Estates by Eden Group - 11/28/07 08:42 PM
I heard some talk of this yesterday, but no specific project mentioned. Well low and behold my morning Vancouver Sun had it right there in the business section (apparently this is not front page news anymore) and also on cbc.ca. It seems that the Eden Group has cancelled their planned development in Mount Pleasant, The Elyse, at East 7th Avenue and Scotia Street as well as a townhouse development, Montgomery Estates, at Oak Street and W. 43rd Ave. I was curious that they had not sold out the Elyse as this had been such a popular area, but Bill Eden is quoted in (12 comments)
Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Mascots Unveiled Today - 11/27/07 03:44 PM
The Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC) unveiled not one, but three mascots for the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralymic Games today and already many are voicing their disapproval. These are adults complaining about cartoon characters. Please, do they have nothing better to do! The news story on Canada.com already has dozens of comments, mostly negative it would seem. The CBC.ca story that specifically asked for opinions had 176 comments as of right now. My kids seem to like them and they seem okay to me. They are cute and a bit quirky, but aren't Olympic mascots always a bit odd. The mascots are (2 comments)
Vancouver Real Estate + A High Loonie + Low U.S. Dollar + Low U.S. House Prices = ??? - 11/22/07 12:53 PM
So what is happening I hear is that some Americans are selling (cashing in) their Vancouver, or anywhere in Canada, homes to buy into depressed US real estate markets with strong Canadian dollars and the profits of our strong real estate market. I had heard in the local press of Canadians buying recreational homes in the US (the article, that I can't find, was about areas just across the border) and some conjecture about Americans selling their Vancouver homes. So today I read on the Luxury Home Blog out of San Diego that some of those Amercians are putting their money back into (1 comments)
How Livable Is the Most Livable City in the World? The Vital Signs 2007 Report - 11/07/07 01:38 PM
Is Metro Vancouver as liveable as international reports say it is? The Vancouver Foundation answers this question in its Metro Vancouver’s Vital Signs® 2007 report. The report tells what it’s like to live in the 21 municipalities that make up Metro Vancouver from the perspective of those of us who live here. It brings together factual information, perceptions gleaned from an Ipsos Reid survey, and ideas from residents about problems and solutions. The report finds that Metro Vancouver is indeed a desirable place to live, but many of our 2.1 million residents face challenges. At the top of the list: affordable housing. (3 comments)
October 2007 Vancouver Real Estate Statistics Show the Market is Still Strong - 11/07/07 01:33 PM
October was another strong month for the Metro Vancouver / Greater Vancouver real estate market. Sales were over 3000 units, which was 11.2% over last October and only 2.3% below the heady days of October 2005. “This is only the fourth time in 25 years that sales have surpassed the 3,000 mark in the month of October,” says REBGV president Brian Naphtali. “What we’re seeing is a buoyant market fueled by strong demand from both first-time and repeat buyers. “The economy is healthy,” Naphtali says. “There’s virtually no unemployment. Interest rates are steady. These are all factors affecting the continued strong demand for (8 comments)
