I'm finished with what I think of as "hedge blocks" - residential areas at the top of Lonsdale that barricade themselves from the roaring pick-up trucks with a lot of coniferness. I can't say those were my favourite places, but there was sometimes a nice view of the city. I may also be done with the blocks that feature vintage condo buildings from Vancouver's historical Leaky Condo era of a decade or two ago. Not too sad to see those done, either. But I did get to do a couple retail blocks that still have the mix of independent restaurants and family businesses. They have been formed by evolution over the years, and are a lot more appealing - and populated - than the Lower Lonsdale block I drew with its carefully designed and controlled development of condos with street-level store fronts - actually, real estate offices and "beauty spas" with no customers.
Now, 5 blocks to do in 6 days.
