VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - It was a symbolic part of Vancouver for years and today the Woodward's red 'W' returned.
Construction crews put it back up this morning and the 'W' will be fully active next Friday during an unveiling ceremony.
Local developer Bob Rennie says he's happy to see it go back up and says it's a heritage memory for a lot of people.
"To me it has also been that walk from Army and Navy to Woodward's to Eaton's to the Bay and then as Eaton's moved and Woodward's closed it completely changed the fabric of the city."
Rennie says working on the Woodward's development stood out for him. "For me, out of every development I have done in the last 35 years, nothing stands out like doing Woodward's because it really brought balance to a neighbourhood."
