Apparently the Koret in gastown sucks. This according to Matthew Good, whose blog has a great rant about Vancouver Real Estate:
This building is just a gong show, I canâ€™t believe people in this town pay these sorts of prices for new places like this. My flat is so cheaply built youâ€™d think a 12 year old did it. And itâ€™s not just here, itâ€™s a problem all over the city. No one can afford to buy because most simply buy apartments to flip in an attempt to make money, driving prices up and out of the range of young families that arenâ€™t pulling in half a million dollars a year. One of these days Vancouverâ€™s real estate market is going to crash, and when it does Iâ€™m going to build a giant float shaped like a cock in an ass and throw a parade.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m just going out to buy some Matthew Good CDs so he can afford to buy here. I’ve always maintained that if we can’t house our rock stars in style then there’s something seriously wrong with this town.
