    MacEwan University School of Business | ?m | ?s | MacEwan University

    I think MacEwan almost single handedly lit a spark in this city vis-a-vis new and striking architecture.

    LRT Safety

    ^^ you'd think someone in the Mayor's office would proofread the statement before it is issued. I see a spelling mistake, a punctuation mistake and two grammatical mistakes.

    Edmonton | Charles Camsell Redevelopment | 39m | 8s | Five Oaks | Dub Architects

    back in the year whenever, I needed surgery to fix my 3rd broken nose. At the time, both the UofA and Royal Alex had big wait times so my surgeon booked some space at the Camsell. The day of, I was moved from my room to the holding area by the surgical suites. One other young fellow was there...

    Jasper Gates Redevelopment | 90m | 30s | RioCan | Stantec

    ^the area couldn't even support the 7-11 across the street from the old IGA, nor, it seems, the Anatoli Food store as they haven't rebuilt in the area for several years since the fire.

    the protruding wings enclosing the balconies have a brick texture; either stamped into the precast concrete or an added veneer.

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

    web site has little info. Interesting that early on, CNIB was touting that (some?) units would be specially designed for people with sight disabilities; yet none of that is addressed on the web site either.

    Edmonton | Oliver Crossing | 21m | 7s

    ^ yup. studios and/or 1brs targeting students. When VLW gets going will probably be attractive to UofA students as well.

    Edmonton | Oliver Crossing | 21m | 7s

    those are going to be quite small units. If you look at the photo and assume the unit's front door opening is 3' wide, then counting the slabs door to door is just 15' Each unit then will be under 500 sf; possibly even less than 400 sf.

    When I first moved here in 1980, the south end of 96st was just a collection of flop houses and sketchy hotels; was the worst couple of blocks I had ever seen in my life.

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

    ^most likely done as part of accessibility; parents with strollers, bicycles, others with mobility issues. But you're right, the majority of able-bodied folk will shortcut and they should have planned for that from the get-go.

    William Hawrelak Park Rehabilitation

    wonder if the site that held the Pope's visit circa 1980ish would be suitable. located at the intersection of the Henday and 97 St north. it is still just a field today.

    hmmm. this is dated Jan 12 2022 and the Highlands Business park is in Calgary, not Edmonton.

    I don't see a problem with 2 different banks in the same building. Most people stick with their bank their whole lives. And if 2 different eateries can exist in the same building, why not 2 banks?

    Edmonton | Oliver Crossing | 21m | 7s

    gotcha. I see it now. here I was thinking the induvial entrances on the 1st floor were inset.

    Edmonton | Oliver Crossing | 21m | 7s

    drive by this every day. gotta say, the 1st floor as-built (so far) looks nothing like the render. Lord knows what this is going to look like
