Any modern residential builds going up (or recently up) in your neighborhood?

Driving right along Oak somewhere near King Ed. is a really interesting house that is in construction... corrugated metal siding, interesting roofline.

Then there is one happening in East Van right next to two others from the same architect... (go to residentials) really interesting designs... especially stark contrast to the surrounding 'vancouver specials'

I'm actually more curious to know if there are any modern builds within the newer neighborhoods  of the outlying regions of GVRD... like in richmond, burnaby, surrey or delta - highly unlikely.... but has it ever been done?  and... why not!?

There's a new duplex not too far from me in Mount Pleasant. There's even a video:

I have some photos of some new modern houses in Vancouver on my blog Pacific Northwest Regional Architecture -

I'm always looking for more, so let me know if you've seen any modern houses being built in Vancouver, especially if they have some regional flavour to them.

One of my favourite new modern houses in Vancouver is the Seear Residence -

Also, be sure to check out this one at 2868 West King Edward -

and this one on West 2nd near Locarno Beach -
