Carrall Street Redevelopment: JJ Lee

Today on CBC radio’s On the Coast, JJ Lee, the design columnist for Vancouver by Design, discusses the Carrall Street Greenway. I’m interested to hear what he puts together from various critiques of the current Greenway plan. He interviewed me an hour or so ago, and I could hear his fingers tapping on the keyboard as we spoke. But then, context is everything, so the words may have another meaning entirely in his hands.

We were both wondering if the construction on that part of Carrall and Pender might have had something to do with the Greenway. It was planned to start in October, but that’s the only sign I’ve seen so far. As it is, those old Greenway banners are looking fairly faded from our hot and sunny summer – I wonder if they’ll be replaced soon?

He told me he is also learning tailoring from the guys at the Modernize Tailors. What a great thing to do! I just went to the Modernize Tailors blog – really worth a visit! Opens your mind to all the possibilities of personal tailoring.

JJ has posted the text of his radio piece “Carrall Street Redevelopment” on his blog, Vancouver by Design.
