The Varsity theater in Point Grey village was set to be knocked down to make way for condos. Apparently the land was too valuable to waste on a single screen neighborhood theater.
Unfortunately it looks like now construction costs have made the land too valuable for the condo’s that were to be built in the Varsity theaters place. Deposits for Varsity condo’s have been returned citing “The unprecedented rise in construction costs” in Vancouver.
So what will go it its place? We’ll have to wait and see.
