    Urban National Park Option for the River Valley

    With the exception of the golf courses, how is it not natural? Asking to educate myself. Interesting that Frederick Todd (associate of Olmsted (Central Park designer) initially proposed using this system and it's associated ravines as recreational areas in the early 1900s. Ravine was proposed...

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

    Right. A lot of ATMs but nowhere to spend the money. I guess they had felt that Canadian Brewhouse is entertaining enough for the masses. Should have been more selective with choice of tenant if they really wanted to be a true entertainment district. Missed opportunity and reeks of...

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

    Yes, I like the reno of HSBC and the building itself. I used that building in particular as a comparison to height of this new proposal. I won't lose any sleep over the lack of height . I was just expecting more in that location. Last three renders of the proposed residential towers were so...

    Hope you're right on the estimated height. Still think HSBC Bank building will tower over this one. They could round the corners a little to add some excitement to the project.

    Put a spire on top and be done with it. 😄

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

    Agreed, While I like this better than the last couple of renders of their proposed residential tower, it's a far cry from what was in the original. Nice to have an all glass office building but this is pretty short and stumpy and doesn't look right in that location. Just flew over Doha a couple...

    Edmonton | The Quarters Hotel and Residences | 280m | 80s | Alldritt Land | Kennedy

    Hopeful that Aldritt will stick with their initial plans and use that historical brick they have stored for the podium. If they could accomplish anything close to what was done with Kelley Ramsay's podium along with a sleek designed tower, we'll have something really special. This is their...

    Edmonton Real Estate Market

    I can't like this post enough. Edmonton needs to clean up it's act and it should be priority one and accelerated. Not in decades time.. Beautify this city's core and you do it for your residents first and foremost. Shouldn't need a major sporting event to be thinking about this. There's been...

    Edmonton | Prairie Sky Gondola | 76.2m | ?s | Prairie Sky | DIALOG

    Exactly. Two different projects but both will add a lot to this city for it's residents and for tourism .The shame about the High-Level line is that they asked for 80K of funding last year and council rejected them. I guess because of COVID. I hope this new council will be more open-minded and...

    Edmonton | Rogers Place | ?m | ?s | Katz Group | HOK

    Yes, I agree. Looking at the ICE District directory on their website is very disappointing. There's a bunch of restaurants, banks , a grocery store and some professional services offered or coming soon. The only entertainment to be had is scheduled Roger's Place events. That's not an...

    Village at ICE District | ICE District Prop. | Stantec

    ^ Block BG and IJ "trophy" first though. They seem to be following Carbon emission reduction deadlines for the rest of their projects. . 2030 or 2050.

    He can dish out hope a lot easier with a 280m building reaching the heavens. 😉

    Edmonton | Winspear Centre Completion Project | 29.87m | 4s | Winspear Centre | Andrew Bromberg

    Disagree with the bolded although I do understand that the public input can also hinder the progression of a project. A double edged-sword. No need to start another thread. since the Block BG thread has always been a great place to discuss anything.🙃

    Edmonton | Winspear Centre Completion Project | 29.87m | 4s | Winspear Centre | Andrew Bromberg

    Not sure why you're asking if one donated to this. 13 million is already from the city. Even if it's one red cent coming from the taxpayer, the Edmonton public should know about changes to projects that they contribute to and have an opportunity to have their say about those changes. I...

    Edmonton | Winspear Centre Completion Project | 29.87m | 4s | Winspear Centre | Andrew Bromberg

    I don't mind the new render at all. The previous render I found the roof/shell to be odd looking. The original "cube' render was probably the best looking one though.

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

    That sums up my feelings for most of these newer residential tower developments. I could take or leave it in regards to their designs. Encore, Ultima, Pearl and Symphony are the only one's I find visually appealing or at least in some aspects. Probably has to do with me liking towers that are...
