    Edmonton | Stantec Tower | 250.84m | 66s | ICE District Prop. | Stantec

    Cost. Definitely disappointing though.

    Boardwalk-Revillon Revitalization | ?m | 6s | Allied Properties REIT | DIALOG

    I'd say that's a pretty broad statement saying pedestrians have no safe way to pass, the south side of the street has both the sidewalk and bike lane open as usual. As someone who lives nearby and walks through the area often, while slightly inconvenient, I wouldn't say this has much of an...

    Edmonton | Connect Centre | 56.3m | 16s | ONE Properties | DIALOG

    Cost of construction in Edmonton is quite surprising, with our winters the amount of heating and hoarding required increases costs significantly. Even items such as heated concrete add up, on top of higher base material and labor costs like you mentioned.

    Edmonton | Encore Tower | 138m | 43s | Westrich Pacific | Dub Architects

    All Construction Management, yes. But the work is still determined by Westrich's design and subcontracted out. The quality has gotten better from their previous products (i.e. Ultima), but has a long way to go.

    Edmonton | The Parks | 146.91m | 45s | Pangman | Hariri Pontarini

    Just an FYI, the "Doan's Restaurant" site to the east is not by the same contractor. It is separate to the Parks project.

    Edmonton | CNIB Redevelopment | 106m | 32s | ONE Properties | Wallman Architects

    This crane is on the Leg Annex, working in tandem with the high-reach excavator!

    Edmonton | Stantec Tower | 250.84m | 66s | ICE District Prop. | Stantec

    I'd say Encore is the closest comparable. Never said SKY was a good value, quite the opposite actually. Just pointing out that Ultima is a very poor value even at the low pricing. They are relying on the 'prestige' of the tower height for their sales numbers. Keep in mind the lowest units in...

    Edmonton | Stantec Tower | 250.84m | 66s | ICE District Prop. | Stantec

    I'd have to argue that Ultima is cheap for a reason, it's one of the most poorly constructed residential towers I've seen. Agree that SKY is over pricing their units, but Ultima is a very poor example for a standard.

    Edmonton | Connect Centre | 56.3m | 16s | ONE Properties | DIALOG

    It's solid terracotta with no bonding panel

    Edmonton | Connect Centre | 56.3m | 16s | ONE Properties | DIALOG

    There's no water feature there, just a large intake duct!

    Edmonton | Connect Centre | 56.3m | 16s | ONE Properties | DIALOG

    Logistically easier yes, I wouldn't say it has an impact on safety though. Keep in mind that many tenants were in the Stantec tower while the structure was still being built above.

    Edmonton | Connect Centre | 56.3m | 16s | ONE Properties | DIALOG

    Exactly this. Keep in mind this tax break has been in the works and yet the tower crane was still removed from site recently, this isn't an overnight process. I don't expect any boots on the ground for the tower portion in the next year.

    Edmonton | Connect Centre | 56.3m | 16s | ONE Properties | DIALOG

    Tower crane has now been removed from site.
