Also, I agree wholeheartedly with Delirium about the need for trees. Too many of the buildings along Granville are unattractive and in terrible condition. I enjoy having lush green trees, at least half the year, to soften the look of the street.

Anyways, this conversation should probably be in the Granville redesign thread - Vancity, you should check it out for more information about the project if you're still interested: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=139190
Thanks a lot, Locked In. I'll be sure to check in on the thread.
