  1. Wow!!! It will be such a change. I grew up on the Burnaby side of 10th Avenue but did most shopping in New West. I use to hate the climb down from the stairway into Army & Navy — was so afraid I would fall down.

  2. I wonder if they could bury the electrical utility cables in this instance. It seems with a new street scape, the opportunity would be there. In the illustration above, it sticks out like an old BC Tel phone booth in front of an Apple Store.
