    Italian Bakery | ?m | 2s | Riddell Kurczaba

    I have a bit of a sweet tooth so it's all about their pastries for me (particularly their donuts!) 🤤

    Edmonton Real Estate Market

    In Oliver, just along 113th street and off 103 Ave.

    Edmonton Real Estate Market

    Oh please be existing condo stock that gets some demand, I would love to sell my condo for not-a-massive-loss lol.

    Warehouse District Park

    I know it's high level, but wow, so far this design doesn't seem particularly inspired. It doesn't feel like there's much creativity put into this. I don't mean to discredit the work of the planners who no doubt must be working hard and it's not to say this is completely terrible or anything...

    Blatchford Development | City of Edmonton

    This is probably a minor thing, but it's something I would really like to see: I live in the neighbourhood just next to Blatchford (Prince Charles) and the separation between these two neighbourhoods is divided by the Via Rail tracks, 121 st, and of course just the fencing that is currently put...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    The issue with this line of thinking is that sharing the road with cars as a biker is generally very unpleasant, particularly when you are sandwiched between moving cars and parked cars, even at low speeds. It's not particularly sad to remove parking and some road space from cars since cars...

    Downtown Crime

    I think they had mentioned electrical fire risk maybe a week or so ago, but this time someone actually poured a bunch of accelerant inside and set fire to it. That just blows my mind that people have the will to do such a thing. Really hope the owners recover from this.

    Suburban Development and Sprawl

    Suburbs do have their very origin rooted in racism, classism, and segregation, so that does makes sense haha.

    Downtown Crime

    ^^Really good list. Until something is done to properly address the issue, it unfortunately ends up falling on home owners and individuals to do their best to deter criminal activity. Sadly, there are enough people who are determined enough/don't care about these deterrents who will go ahead...

    Suburban Development and Sprawl

    I like that a picture of the suburbs still needs downtown in the background to look even remotely interesting.

    Edmonton | Stationlands Residential Towers | 90m | 25s | Qualico | DIALOG

    Some great local businesses in the area that could use a boost from this development too. Macarons and Goodies, Fuzion Donuts, and Rayyan Restaurant are so good. Would love to see these local places have greater success from increased foot traffic.

    Edmonton | Stationlands Residential Towers | 90m | 25s | Qualico | DIALOG

    I find it both exciting and discouraging. There's just so much potential everywhere and it's exciting to see some real nice developments move ahead, but discouraging when you look at the sea of parking lots and neglected areas and realize how much farther there is to go to make a filled in and...

    Edmonton | Stationlands Residential Towers | 90m | 25s | Qualico | DIALOG

    There should be a balance between indoor/outdoor access. Since the indoor connections aren't usually as direct as going outside, it's easier to head outside and get to where you're going faster. A pedway system is nice to have during poor weather but the current system generally undermines...

    Past Vs Present

    I feel like it might be because the new HSBC front design really puts a spotlight on just how wide 101 St. is. I'm not a traffic engineer, but is that road width really necessary for cars? At least there's plenty of space to work with for improvements, like retrofitting dedicated bus lanes or...

    132 Ave Renewal

    Wow this is a pretty great design. Given the two options between orange and purple, the purple seems like a compromised/cut down version of the orange one (less landscaping/trees, more road space for parking). Would also like to see roundabouts over the signalized intersections. Glad for the...

    Owning versus renting

    I would somewhat agree - the quiet that is found in a typical car-dependent suburban wasteland is just creepy and lifeless. But what's ironic about that is that most "city noise" comes from...well, cars. Revving engines, tires on road, honking, etc. constitutes most of the noise found in urban...

    Misc. Transportation Projects

    "If we're serious about building a city that stops urban sprawl, that builds up, not out," he said, "We need to make sure that it's easy and safe to move, whether you're eight years old or you're 80 years old." I have so much more hope in this city council that seems to generally understand...

    Owning versus renting

    I definitely agree with you on the wasting a whole weekend fixing something, it's frustrating and a big downside to owning a house. However, I do dislike the idea that it HAS to be either a small condo in a tower or a suburban car-dependent hellscape 40 minutes away from the city center...

    Owning versus renting

    It definitely comes down to what you're willing to put up with. I've experienced renting, condo ownership, and home ownership, and based on my experience, home ownership has been my preference in Edmonton thus far. For my condo, I have had some pretty rough experiences - special assessments...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    Just want to ask for those who bike during winter if it hasn't been asked before - does the City's sand/salt application rough up your bike? Is there anything you can do to mitigate damage?
