The Viaduct was our roadway structure that brought you over some land bringing you downtown via Dunsmuir or out via Georgia st.
I have always had concerns over this. The big empty covering half of the false inlet, waste soil from when it was built. That soil could be toxic and, I would hope they do proper assesments and properly dig out all of it before anyone builds any new structures. Its alot of land , and I would hope City Hall plans with those living around it in mind. Also have a plan for the traffic displaced by the removal of the Viaducts. Making improvments to the system for those who commute to downtown also. It needs to be prepared properly – it should go better , than what happened across the way with the Olympic village. A nieghborhood that has almost tripled in size after 7 yrs. .
The new structure, at BC Place, wraps around the Stadium.
A few years ago, an article said that , BC Place would be surrounded by towers, and be totally hidden from the skyline . I laughed at the idea. In short , the land , wasn’t the greatest. Tight quarters , say poor ground level structure. The bridge, the roadway . Knaw, I don’t see it ,aaaaand . Its well, its more than half gone with the four condo towers going up around it. It wont be to long. I am amazed at how every foot of land gets absorbed into the build up. West end continues to up its ceiling and roof regulations, include one 30 story thats attached to the new downtown mall . Every day another big whole in the ground.
