This is brick building with green trim; a garment factory I suspect.

Red and green building at 4th and Ontario in Vancouver

Yes, it really was that green.

Vancouver has a flourishing garment trade, with designers, factories, and retail outlets (many along Main Street), all of them small and interdependent.

Ontario Street, pictured here, is an immensely useful and pleasant bicycle-optimized north-south artery that I use all the time.

The green immediately made me think of the green sheet technique for video like weathermen standing in front of a green background when on air the satellite images are shown behind.

creativity could abound...

The building is an industrial laundry, and has been there for many decades. Sometimes the pleasant smell of clean fabric wafts through the neighbourhood.
