New hotel in Oliver

The whole thing is an eyesore, not just the entrance. It looks like someone just stacked a bunch of containers together and then had Fred and Barney add an entrance to it.

Do you like this artist's concept?

Not a fan of either style (Wood one is better) but the finished product pretty much never looks like the artist's concept.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I'd prefer the wooden one as well but the ghost in the bottom left of the artist's rendition is making me lean towards the steel framed. :D

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

I don't think you know the definition of the word "development". This hotel does not qualify. The land was developed many years ago and was home to another business, an RV Park. Then someone came along, bought the RV Park and decided to get rid of all the RVs and build a hotel on the property. A 'development' is when someone buys raw land and decides to build something on it.

A development also means enlargement, progress, spread, growth etc. Not just on raw land.

Owner of RV park has the right to sell the property, yes or no.
Town of Oliver has the right to say yes or no the a hotel, yes or no.

Perhaps, but I was replying to someone who was accusing me of being anti-development because I'm against the Lark Group's plan to develop the Banks Crescent land. IMHO, those two projects have no relation to each other, and I was merely pointing out the fact that the proposed new hotel is an eyesore.
