Description: Vancouver, B.C. Canada: Canada Mortgage and Housing Co, 1998. First Edition. Hardcover. 0662274008 121 pages including index. Twenty years ago, Granville Island was transformed from a decrepit 37 acre industrial slum in Vancouver's False Creek to possibly the most successful urban redevelopment ever seen in North America. Rusty tin-sided factories were reborn as a public market, an art school, shops, restaurants, theatres, and a great deal more. Today, Granville Island boasts more than eight million visits a year, 2,600 jobs and the highest sales per square foot of any public market on this continent. A chronicle of the Granville Island story which celebrates what the Island has to offer, and peers inside its seldom-seen inner life. An attractive, interesting and enjoyable volume. Colour photography throughout. Book in fine unmarked condition but for gift inscription upon top half of front free endpaper which has been whited out.. Very Good .
