    Edmonton | Lewis Farms Community Recreation Centre | ?m | ?s | Saucier + Perrotte

    Will they develop here regardless? Acheson and Nisku boom because of cheaper land, cheaper property taxes, and less hoops to jump through.

    Downtown Crime

    Is there even a 7-Eleven left in downtown? The one he references as remaining is also closed.

    Alberta Politics

    The pollsters suggesting it's a coin toss between the NDP and UCP is interesting as it shows that Smith isn't doing the damage politically most thought would happen, and/or the NDP is really struggling to attract the orphaned conservative voters who don't buy into the more fringe right who have...

    I really, really miss Klefbom.

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

    Unfortunately, I think the issue boils down to two things: 1. P3 contracts being structured so the client (City of Edmonton) has minimal project oversight while the contractor (TransEd) is inherently incentivized to build out the project in the absolutely cheapest manner they can get away with...

    Edmonton | Falcon Towers | 170m | 44s | Langham Developments | Arc Studio

    What they failed to mention was that "in the new year" means December 2023 on their project roadmap. Lol. Excited to see how they excavate and build up the tower 2 parkade while they continue the vertical buildout of tower 1.

    Phenomenal work by those involved. Hell of a job by those iron workers in this weather.

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    With the price of beef, who can blame them for wanting to get out. I saw Dallas Pizza also for sale not long ago.

    Downtown Crime

    Saddest part is I would bet a lot of the the public servants in Community & Social Services, Children's Services, Mental Health & Addiction, and Indigenous Relations are all more frustrated with the direction of their employer than any of us are.

    Edmonton | Maclab Garneau | 98.14m | 30s | Maclab Development | Diamond Schmitt

    I'm a U of A grad. I tried hard to find a job working downtown after graduation, but the options at the time were basically gov't, big 4 or CRE brokerage. I wound up working in Acheson/Winterburn area and I can probably count on two hands the people I know who actually work downtown here (and...

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

    I'm worried about the aesthetics because this city deserves far better than this garbage bandaid solution--but I can also accept a solution potentially coming at a later date (within <3 years) if it means they'll get this line operational this spring. Unfortunately, I don't think that is...

    A nice idea but if the School of Architecture ever returns to the U of A, it'd have to be on north campus. Would have been perfect to have been in University Commons/DentPharm.
