Mount Pleasant burns down… again.

Posted by & filed under Vancouver.

I just got back from Kingsway and Broadway, the scene of the latest highly suspicious fire in Mount Pleasant.

For now, I’ve uploaded a Flickr set–tags to follow shortly.

With typical Vancouver cynicism, consensus among most of the bystanders (also, news media, city workers, firefighters, etc.) seemed to be that the soon-to-be-constructed condo towers at Kingsway and Broadway and Main and Broadway would be very nice and profitable indeed.

Update: The Vancouver Sun has also posted an extensive gallery of pre-dawn photos.

Update #1: I made a Google Map illustrating what might be in store for Main Street when developers get some of this land rezoned.

    Thanks for posting the photos — we’re one of the tenants on the only building left standing on this corner. It was funny — just a few days before the fire — I was thinking we’re probably next to burn over Christmas holidays…
