    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I'm far from an expert on this, but I would suspect the issue is less in the shape of the piers, but in the quality of the concrete work & materials. A "Y" shaped pillar is pretty standard practice. Hopefully Marigold is working to different specs, or at least checking in with TransEd as to what...

    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    No summer opening, no new target date. Sigh. Found cracks in eighteen piers. Yikes

    Looks decent on the inside, looking forward to checking it out in person. Image from Ice District twitter

    Take it for what it's worth, but that doesn't sound promising for the issues we're seeing around Wagner...

    Can't remember now, is this coming down for Valley Line LRT infrastructure, or will we just be blessed with another needlessly empty lot?

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

    Along with Banquet as posted previously, signs are up for Canadian Icehouse, the Oilers Team Store, and an Oilers logo at what looks like maybe 104 Ave /103 St?

    City has been doing some planting on 75 street, which is nice to see! Between Argyll and Whyte Ave they've put a bunch of new trees in between the service road & 75 St, plus are adding median trees right on 75th as well! Great to see.

    Yeah, Calgary Trail is a step above for sure. History plays into Gateway absolutely, if I recall correctly it was only made as the main entry after the METS plan to freeway 91st / Mill Creek was cancelled. But, that was in the 60s. There has been plenty of time since to update the stretch. If it...

    I would say that there is nothing about this that is befitting of a provincial capital's main entry point. A sidewalk would be the bare minimum to add. A no, not all of it is this bad of course, but enough of it is that it needs addressing. It's even less usable in the winter (including the...

    People who work in the area. People who don't have access to a car. People walking to grab lunch while working. Someone who takes transit which stops 500m from their destination who's maybe mobility challenged and can't properly navigate the complete lack of infrastructure there now. Etc, etc...

    Disappointing, but entirely unsurprising. On the note of Calgary Trail / Gateway Boulevard. It needs to be an absolute priority for the city to add sidewalks to the stretch between 51 Ave and Whyte Ave (ideally everywhere, but that stretch for absolute certain). Embarrassing.

    Edmonton | Douglas Manor Addition | 23m | 6s | ROIS Investments | David Murray

    As it stands right now, from Twitter. Looks like extensive damage, roof gone. Ugh

    Edmonton | Douglas Manor Addition | 23m | 6s | ROIS Investments | David Murray

    There was a significant fire on the upper floor / roof of the building this morning. Really hope it can be salvaged, you hate to see any fire but especially on our limited heritage stock left.

    Selling plots as a 99 year lease instead of actually owning the title is an interesting choice. Probably nothing to be concerned about as a buyer now, but those buying closer to the end of the lease might have some reservations (but that's a problem for long in the future).

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

    Luckily "just" hit some parked cars. For those in the industry, how does an issue this big happen to a tower of this stature? Is this just bad material, shoddy labour, a combination of both? This needs to be fully fixed ASAP...
