From the ever-insightful Guest:

Two places that are worse:

– Robson Street (north side) just west of Richards outside the Jinya Ramen restaurant, where Jinya has a patio railing (and a line-up), there is a washroom kiosk, a new digital sign has been installed, and the Telus garden office building has a glass sidewalk which some people avoid walking on.

 

Granville Street (east side) just north of Robson where Cafe Crepe has a patio railing, there is a poorly placed bike rack , often a sidewalk vendor with a table and a metal Canada Line ventilation grill in the sidewalk that some people avoid walking on.

  1. “Telus Garden office building has a glass sidewalk which some people avoid walking on”, looks cool, but get a little watter on it (here, in Vancouver, rain, whaat?), and the glass is a slick as ice.l. Smart to not walk on it. A lesson in designing to suit your environment and not transplanting architectural features. Sandblasting the surface would make safe but destroy the aesthetic.
