564 Beatty st : original building 1909 warehouse developed by CPR. Renovation, seismic upgrade and additional tower by Rob Leshgold of reliance properties, IBI group Inc, and Bruce Carscadden. ~2014. In an old growth forest, many young saplings sprout from the carcass of an old decaying tree. Enriched by the nutrients of its host, these trees often bear a unique shape at their base, and can house larger fauna in the cavity beneath. Where Gastown meets Yaletown, the old CPR warehouses of Beatty street meet the "spandex urbanism" of the new Vancouver, and directly on this seam sits this bad boy, looking much like your retired dad in a 700$ gortex jacket that you wish you could afford. There is so much in this photo to consider through the lens of change. There is the convention centre (rotating restaurant) The Sun Tower, but in the foreground is the northwest ramp to the dunsmuir street viaduct. This area will be looking dramatically different in no time at all. When the CPR developed these warehouses they gave the buildings a commercial facade on Beatty street, and a utilitarian loading dock on the lower railway line. This combination seems to lend itself well to the restaurant scene. Chambar, possibly my favourite fancy joint, sits in the middle of this building. Using the larger vacuum of the former warehouse to set a grandiose historic flavour, fused with contemporary lighting, art and style. It is not my intention to endorse any business, and I certainly do not want to ruin the fact that I have never waited in line for this place, but if you ever feel like chocolate and waffles with a lavender latte, tell them that the vulture sent you. No one will know what you are talking about. #chambar#vancouverfoodie#vancouverurbanliving#gastown#beattystreet#vancouverisawesome#oldmeetsnew#architecture#architecturelovers#renovation#edwardianstyle#warehouseparty#urbandesign#historyofvancouver#brunch#lavenderlattes
