I just don't get what's going on anymore. I've been trying to get some reading time in, and everything seems confused, confusing, or just plain crazy. But we all have had our fill of crazy, and there is little to say anymore, so I will give you this excerpt from the Grim and Malevolent, and let you read between the lines (I like to focus on Vancouver, but...)
Are we the ones that are crazy? I sometimes wonder.
Towers built on fast food fortune
A Korean entrepreneur who has built an empire from a fried chicken chain is set to transform central Surrey into one of the biggest urban hubs outside of Vancouver.
Just like living at McDonald's?
...suites for the complex near the King George SkyTrain station will go on sale starting at $179,900.
...touted as the highest residential tower in B.C. outside of Vancouver. Construction starts in two months and the move-in date is set for 2010.
Where do I sign my life away - er- sign up?
MAC Marketing Solutions...'s already got a waiting list of thousands of people waiting to buy into the development.
"I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't sell one tower in a day,"..."We are having incredible demand.
"People recognize this will probably be the second largest urban hub outside Vancouver and they're trying to get in early."
Probably? Just the 2nd largest? Ah, outside Vancouver is the new line. Eat your heart out MAC, Rennie could tout OMA being just a minute away from Vancouver.
Mr. Yang...His vision is to transform the previously troubled area...Sounds like Woodwards. Are they on to something?
...condo prices in downtown Vancouver are estimated to be $800 to $1,500 per square foot, Surrey's price of $450 to $550 is reasonable.Maybe for top tier places you'll ask for $800-$1500/sq', but there are plenty of CONdo's for sale for less than that, and how can $450-$550/sq' be reasonable in Surrey?
"Surrey...The demand is there."Whatever you say.
Mr. Yang still owns...South Korea's version of KFC...and Mr. Yang won't stop there.Spare us Mr. Yang. We have had enough.
"He is committed to do more things in Surrey,..may be expanding our operations to other cities.
