Happy 2009! Here we are getting well into the new year. Today, while in Vancouver, I found the westbound lane on West Georgia at Howe Streets blocked off to traffic and a large crane in position at a former hotel being renovated into condos. These are a few photos I took of the event. There were large flatbed trucks waiting east of Howe Street with what looked to me like parts for a much larger crane. I'm certain there will be lots of activity for some time until the condo building is completed.
