Kitsilano Pool at closing is a world-class panorama. What has always inspired me most about the place is not the unrivaled view, but the tremendous ambition of constructing a public pool along one of the most scenic plots of shoreline in the city.
Sometimes I wonder: is real estate freakishly expensive in Vancouver in part because the world has realized how rare and spectacular a place this is? Forget for a moment the endless commentary about speculation, interest rates, and safe parking for international money. Could a major reason for our inflated prices simply be that few cities are as beautiful?
