    Interesting guess with Annacis Island Visor, but incorrect. One can only view this sign while in Vancouver. Interested parties have been dropping by since the sign has gone up so it is definetely visible. As for "when" I really am not able to give a good answer until closer to the date of.

    thanks for your interest

    when I say "coming soon" it really means coming soon. The building is brand new and the badminton portion is being built from the ground up with a badminton specific mindset. As you can see, we're quite busy at work at the moment.

    the answer is indeed out there kwun. As I've said, the sign drew a number of people to drop by to see what was going on. Good job on finding that website.

    nice location right between Vancouver and Richmond.

    looking at the aerial photos. i am surprised to see so much farmland in East and South Richmond. i'd think with the dense population these lands would've been bought by real estate developer and got developed.

    maybe build a few more badminton gyms. :)

    good work kwun!! If you look closer you'll see its the centre of the greater Vancouver region. I assume you found it with the powers of an admin?

    Right you are visor! Sign is only visible when standing in Vancouver. The location is meant to serve those who live and Vancouver and Burnaby and Richmond. We are visible from the knight street bridge, do feel free to drop by and have a look. Wondering who you heard about this new development from?

    Kwun, I hope its more than a tourist attraction. More photos will follow for sure. Since we are building this facility from the ground up with a "badminton specific" mentality, there are going to be a few things done differently and I think you will be interested. Can you move this thread to the sub-forum of Canada West please?
