Unique to Vancouver, City Square’s shopping mall and office complex is an inimitable mix of modern and heritage architecture. The heritage portions of the complex were built in 1905 and 1908 to house the Model School and Normal School, respectively. Graduates from the Teacher’s Training Program applied their skills, norms (hence the name “Normal School”) and educational theories at the Normal School to gain practical experience. The Model School and Normal School are impressive four-storey granite and sandstone buildings designed in the Italianate style by architect E. E. Blackmore. The stained glass windows, copper cupola and slate roofs add further charm and character to the architecture. City Square Shopping Mall and office complex, as we see it today, was inaugurated in 1989 and is a spectacular example of adaptive reuse of heritage buildings. The schools were restored to their original grandeur and then connected to two six-storey office towers by a large modern spacious glass atrium. The complex was designed by the renowned architect, Paul Merrick. It is located in the heart of the heritage district of central Vancouver and across from Vancouver City Hall.

North Shore Home Services and Energy Savers Ltd was originally established working primarily on the North Shore of Vancouver and the municipality of West Vancouver by local resident Al Ritchie in 1963. Al was active in the community, and served as a West Vancouver Alderman on the West Vancouver City Council. The company primarily cleaned and repaired gutters, roofs, as well as chimneys and furnaces. If your house was built before 1980, you may even see our original company sticker on your furnace in your basement, notifying you of your next service date! In 1988, Al passed suddenly in Mexico. The company sat dormant for 2 years and then in 1990, Jason Clarke took over. Jason owned the company until 1995 when health reasons made it necessary for him to relocate to Kelowna. A friend of Jason’s, Troy Thompson, took over from him in August 1995 and has owned it since. All three owners were local North Shore residents. Since 1995 North Shore Home Services (and North Shore Gutters) has grown from just servicing North Vancouver and West Vancouver, to servicing areas in Whistler, Squamish, the Sunshine Coast and through to Langley. Our primary customer base is still from the […]
