Don't think so.  Do you have a link?  I lived through quite a bit of the before.  I'm constantly amazed by the downtown changes from twenty years ago.

Its really really really cool!
It works with IE though so if you have firefox you don't get the cool special effects.

 I don't normally click on polictical threads but since this one was started by Ms Kitten, I knew that it was a fun one. ;)
 
 If we were strictly discussing politics, then I have absolutely nothing to add!

I knew you'd like it. It's actually the site that changed my career paths. That's all urban planning.

To know you have had a hand in changing something from ugly to beautiful would be a wonderful feeling.

yup that's why I changed my focus. Heck vancouver is now a building philosphy 'vancouverism'.

I read elsewhere that other cities are looking toVancouver for inspiration in urban planning.  Good choice of careers.

Any city that has limited space uses Vancouver as their model now.  The city planners in Vancouver realized in the 70's that the only way for Vancouver to grow was to grow up and not use sprawl.

Naturally when the terrain makes it impossible to grow outwards, the only direction is up.

I'm going to guess by 2020 Surrey will look a lot like Downtown Vancouver.

And pretty much everything inbetween Royal Ave and the water front in New Westminster will go the same way.

It will likely be a megacity along the lines of Toronto.

That's what it looks like is going to happen. A Vancouver-New West-Surrey mega corridor.
