The Mac after the condo conversion.
I've been sooo busy this last week. I haven't had the time to say anything meaningful (well, I have never said much in that way anyhow...).
Last night I was looking for historical items regarding real estate in Vancouver, and came across some interesting stuff.
I am no fan of condo's, but I realize that it is a personal bias, and everyone has their own reasons, and tastes. This one made me shake my head though.
I have read about all of the condo projects - The "W", The Hudson, OMA, etc., but they were just names to me.
I came across before and after photo's of some of these projects. This one kind of left me wondering.
I found out that The Mac was actually built on the site of a McDonald's restaurant, and realized that it was named after their eponymous hamburger. They have a McDonald's downstairs, and condo's upstairs. That is just plain weird. What was in the promotional literature?
Come live at The Mac! A fast-food junkie's dream!
Relax on your balcony while the scintillating odours of frying French Fries and sizzling meat patties waft up and stir the appetites of you and your guests.
Never be stuck for menus for your dinner parties again. You don't need a yard for BBQ's - the biggest BBQ in the world is right in the foyer of this project.
The kids will love it, and will be the envy of their school mates when they have their birthday parties!
And the washrooms are always clean!
I guess it beats the smell of boiled cabbage.
As an aside - There is not much roof over-hang on this project, and it looks like a leaky condo in the waiting.
