It doesn't make sense. I like to blame the viewcones or OCP for destroying this piece of heritage gem. If a tall condo can be put next to it, perhaps this church building can still be preserved. Same thing for the Lutheran Church at Oakridge. It will also be torn down. There was a time when downtown had lots of beautiful buildings too. They were torn down due to a push for North-American style modernization, resulting in many heritage structures gone forever. The same situation is also affecting the suburbs now. How sad this situation is, and short-sighted of planners. Makes me more appreciative of cities like Victoria and London.
Hey!! Detroying this curch, esp in a young city like Vancouver, is criminal, or just about. Can't people on SSP Van write to the city? Yell, howl, do whatever to save this!!

Thanks for the update! I think Parc Elise is trying hard to be the most generic wedding cake midrise on the Cambie Corridor.
