    Glad to finally have that sidewalk open along the south side of 104 Avenue. I also like those bollards that drop into the sidewalk. I am curious to see how lit this plaza becomes, I guess tomorrow night will be the first go at it. I'll be inside ;-)

    We're working through it right now. Hope to have a DP decision issued in short order.

    Nope. The Tang site was tied to the parking lot on the opposite side. The sites weren't physically connected to each other other then being zoned under the same DC2, which we amended with our new rezoning.

    First off, tower projects just don't happen that quickly. There's a lot of work that has to be done before you get into a position to submitting a development permit application, then into detailed design, then submitting a building permit, then financing, then construction. Lot's of steps, and...

    Ideally you'd want to open after the LRT construction, so my guess is that they'll start (that is IF they actually plan to build anything) in about 2-years, and that is following an aggressive schedule.

    Well, I'm happy the vacant 'eyesore' of a lot is concealed from street level. About time. But this is far from a pat on the back to the owner and I truly hope they place their attention on this project to get it going. Or sell it to someone else who will.

    To be honest, it'll take a lot more then that to stabilize the building that will satisfy the debt-holders. It's in a tough spot unfortunately.

    If they've just started their fit out it'll be 90-days at best before they are ready to open. That takes them to end of summer/early fall.

    You'd likely never notice the traffic especially if you were higher up or faced east. The difference between 124 St and 102 Ave is that it's not a 'raceway' like 105 Street can be. Vehicles are generally moving slower in this area.

    How did you draw your conclusions on the 'Potentially Dead' projects? Based on what I know most of these are not even close to being 'dead'. My only caveat would be Strathearn Heights Phase 1...otherwise I'd say you're off on many of these.

    I like West Village or something along those lines. It represents the geographical area in that it sits 'west' of the downtown core. Village represents the 'community' given the density and that a significant number of people reside in this area. It's also 'benign' in the sense that it's not...

    A very important project for the Warehouse District which compliments the Warehouse Park. Then to get the Edgar's Shift Tower going and this area will feel quite a bit different. Exciting times for the western fringe of the downtown core.

    Why would they need to 're-shore'?

    That's all up to Epcor. It's not cheap to relocate overhead lines u/g. But this doesn't really bother me as you see this all over - Toronto, Vancouver, etc.
