Are you familiar with the history of the Yale Hotel on Granville Street? Brent Beatson of Rize Alliance will lead a talk on the recent restoration of the historic Yale Hotel on March 26th. He will talk about the 2011 Heritage Revitalization Agreement (HRA) that made the hotel restoration possible by including the addition of the neighbouring apartment tower. This project included a complete renovation of the SRO suites, seismic upgrading, and the refurbishment of the mechanical systems along with the 1950′s neon sign. This building is one of Vancouver's oldest surviving buildings originally serving as a watering hole and bunkhouse for CPR workers in the late 1800s. The recent renovations will ensure it survives for many more years.
