Last Gas Station, Davie Street at Burrard Street, Vancouver Brit

Another sign of changing times, this Esso on Davie Street at Burrard Street is the last gas station in downtown Vancouver. How long it will exist is another thing. The property went up for sale last spring. Property in Vancouver, especially the core, is just far to valuable for use for something like a gas station. It’s a large footprint on the land and the property alone has been assessed at $36 million. Only a matter of time before this parcel of land is home to another condo tower and drivers will have to head out of downtown to fill up.
