Photographer's Note

As with my previous photo, the Pink Palace that is set for demolishing, so is its sister building The Shoreland.

For the main photo, i tried my best to get a little creative, trying to find a composition with a bit of style - not sure if I succeeded. The building has a Cork Screw type of rounded exterior, I quite like it.

This is another 1960's building that the Vancouver City Counsel has voted on demolishing. Locals find the building to be an eye sore in an otherwise very rich and posh area along the waterfront.

I added the MAP feature if you're interested. What's ironic is that all of the other apartment buildings surrounding it are just as ugly, but they're not PINK or AQUA GREEN in colour, so they don't stand out as much. If you drive around the area, its full of multi million dollar homes on the waterfront, so I guess these apartment buildings are out of favour with the locals.

Also, perhaps the interiors are in need of repair, but is that reason to demolish it? What will happen to all the residents living here? Its still occupied today.

Please check out the WS photos. And please forgive the awful lighting, as I chose the absolute worst day to drive down there.
