Featured Building: Spot
The Spot is yet another interesting shape on the Vancouver skyline. This 26 floor cylindrical building with town homes at its foot, fits right in with the Vancouverism style of architecture prevalent throughout the downtown area.
Seymour Street is a somewhat busy tree-lined street with traffic flowing one way. Traffic along Seymour usually splits off from the Granville Bridge where motorists wish to connect to Georgia Street and west to ultimately, the Lions Gate Bridge and the North Shore beyond.
Despite being a popular artery of the downtown core's traffic system, traffic usually flows fairly smoothly, even during the peak times. The one-way nature of the road has advantages over two way streets in the city core in that turns onto and off contend with traffic from fewer directions.
The entertainment district along Granville Street just a block over is alluring. After the theatre, there are clubs and eclectic bars to visit, all just a short stroll away. Professional sporting teams play just a few blocks away at BC Place and the Rogers Arena. During these events, it's much better to walk than to face traffic congestion of fans from other areas of the city.
The Spot is certainly in the centre of the city, figuratively and literally. Residents of this neighbourhood get to experience the numerous cultural and annual neighbourhood events right outside its doors.
