    Downtown Real Estate

    The irony of City Center Mall making a comeback thanks to Zellers, a discount store, as a new tenant making a comeback lol

    Edmonton | Prairie Sky Gondola | 76.2m | ?s | Prairie Sky | DIALOG

    Question for those who have knowledge of this specific concept: why has the city not established a real estate trust company with the sole purpose to develop the Rossdale lands? Or for that matter, why has the city not established a real estate trust company to develop Rossdale, Blatchford, The...

    Edmonton | Tower 101 | 175m | 50s | Regency Developments | DER + Associates

    What's Regency's excuse for the Emerald? We resurrect these conversations about site conditions on this thread every few months but Regency is not interested in addressing their sites and the City doesn't seem interested in enforcing bylaws impacted by the site conditions.

    Edmonton | South Edmonton Hospital & Health Campus | ?m | ?s | Province of Alberta

    I think Edmonton does a good job of deterring investment on its own (see the Gondola thread). Cant give all the credit to the provincial government in this case :)

    Edmonton | Prairie Sky Gondola | 76.2m | ?s | Prairie Sky | DIALOG

    As a resident of downtown who is already frustrated by the the social disorder, the City's general lack of ability to provide basic municipal services like cleanliness, and council's general ridiculous lack of direction (replacing mosquito spraying with bats, defunding then refunding the...

    Edmonton | Prairie Sky Gondola | 76.2m | ?s | Prairie Sky | DIALOG

    Once again Edmonton demonstrates that it is its own worst enemy and deserves every bit the reputation it has. Edmonton has been and continues to be a city that finds every way to not do get something done, or to get something done with very little imagination or vision, while other cities strive...

    Edmonton | Winspear Centre Completion Project | 29.87m | 4s | Winspear Centre | Andrew Bromberg

    So should we be preparing for a watered down, bait and switch version of the original plan ala the Stanley Milner Library Given the scope, design and budget change, I cant imagine we are going to be seeing something that will blow our minds out of the water that is better than the original...

    Haha by your logic...I ate three meals of food today. There are people in Africa that suffer from food insecurity but its all about the attitude and what you make of it.

    Yesterday late afternoon my partner and I did a walking tour of downtown around the Ice district, 104th street, to the Leg, and back down Jasper back to 104th street. Two main observations from my walk: 1A. Garbage, garbage, garbage and more garbage. I counted at least 17 city trash bins that...

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    How incredibly vague from both the government and the airport. What is this expansion? I doubt just land development because if its $100MM thats a whole lot more than I would expect for only developing land. But the info graph says $300MM. What are the details? What are the timelines? Is this...

    Edmonton City Centre Mall (Renovations) | ?m | 2s | LaSalle Investment Management

    You can shoot a cannonball down 102ave and the only thing you might hit is blowing garbage. This area is beyond pathetic, which is par for much of downtown right now.

    Canada Soccer

    TSN 1260 Edmonton radio is discussing a report right now that Edmonton is in fact not chosen as one of the host cities. Keep in mind the report they are discussing is coming out of Vancouver and may be typical crap on Edmonton BS but it is very coincidental that on the day of the report, the...

    Canada Soccer

    I think the discrepancy is that they announced that they will be making an announcement. Today's announcement is that they will make an announcement on June 16th.

    Downtown Crime

    Couldnt agree more. We need hard solutions ASAP. The time for kumbaya, woke, we need to support every group with issues without offending them, needs to end because this is beyond out of hand.

    I had a chat with Jack not so long ago. He was an Edmontonian and takes pride in his roots but moved to Calgary. He shared with me that he had an opportunity to set up and head a school of public policy and chose to do it at U of C for several reasons typical of Edmonton that we all discuss on...
