Ah, no form of journalism more pure than the Vancouver Sun‘s condo reviews, where
real estate PR flacks unbiased freelance journalists write things about overpriced Vancouver properties that you imagine the developers of those properties would like said about them. But in a review of Wesbrook Village’s Academy condo published in today’s Sun, there’s a nugget of something I can’t decide is true or not. Judge for yourself:
A large traffic circle acts as a boundary between the busy UBC’s student-centred campus region and Wesbrook Village’s dense retail centre, steps away from Vancouver’s iconic Pacific Spirit Park.
IT CERTAINLY DOES. YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO DEAL WITH STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY STUDENTS THAT WANT LIQUOR. Have you ever wanted the security of a university without the unpleasantness of ever having to deal with the actual people who use it?
Nowhere in this article does it warn you about the villains who want to do things like volleyball tournaments (pages 1, 3 and 10) in the athletic fields hundreds of metres away.
And students, don’t worry! Density, like a condo on the front lawn of the football stadium, is absolutely necessary and won’t impact your university experience at all. The lovely community members want to co-exist with you!
University Town, everybody.
