The Railyards

I've written about the Dockside Green development several times. It occupies the western shoreline of the Gorge between the Johnson Street Bridge and the Bay Street Bridge. The shoreline between the Bay Street Bridge and the Selkirk Trestle is occupied by the development pictured above, The Railyards. It makes no pretensions to being green, and for a long time I didn't like its style much - corrugated metal siding just looks cheap to me. However, over time I've grown to like it a bit more. For those interested in prices, a two bedroom condo here will cost about $450,000. They also have one bedroom apartments and bachelor suites down to about $300,000 though I think the latter are all sold. The Galloping Goose Regional Trail passes in front of both Dockside Green and The Railyards as it follows the Gorge out of downtown.

A great view, albeit an expensive one it seems!

I investigated the prices on new Airstream travel trailers today. A tiny 17' "Sport" suggested retail price is US $32,000. I couldn't believe it.

I love these buildings, I wish more developers would be "brave" and use bold colours. There is far too much beige, taupe and off-white stucco out there.
Great picture, you really have a knack for capturing the best angles of these shots. I love seeing familiar stuff in your photos!

450K? HAHAHAHA! I think I'll have to stay on the outside looking in. But from the looks of your lovely photo, it's not such a tragedy.

Every day I wonder more photos of landscapes and cities.

To me, this development is too much at odds with its setting. But I do like the way your photo sweeps around and leads the eye to that shining city!
