Revisiting Main Street 2016 WEST: 20TH – 21ST AVENUE

Five years on from our original photo session, Vancouver’s Main Street has changed significantly. As expected, Vancouver is a fast-evolving city. This was the impetus for our documentation after all. The neighbourhood has seen entire blocks changed over from old businesses to new, and buildings reborn from vacant land or past structures. We’re taking a look at a few of the blocks with interesting changes and wondering what’s next for this street? Starting with 20th – 21st Ave West, the images below were taken summer of 2016. Compare that to the street as it was in 2011 – new paint, renos, new tenants and a building seemingly forever under construction hoarding.

Main Street…forever changing.
