Bye Bye Plaza of Nations

It was my family’s main entry point to Expo 86 [wiki] every single weekend. The Plaza of Nations, one of the last remaining structures from the expo, a fixture of Vancouver festivals and cultural fairs, will not be around much longer.

A glass roof built for Vancouver’s Expo ’86 that was designed to last 10 months will finally be torn down. In a news release Thursday, the city said it had granted a demolition permit to the owners of the Plaza of Nations. [CBC]

Tenants have been told to pack their bags as it will all be coming down except for the former BC Pavilion from Expo, currently home to the Edgewater Casino [CKNW]. Apparently it’s to make way for a hotel complex although I’m unsure if the city or the development company has released official plans.
