    Warehouse District Park

    Most new restaurants in Vancouver have gender neutral bathrooms and that's literally all it is. Individual full length stalls with a shared space to wash your hands. I don't think length of stalls really impacts whether people will use drugs in them or not lol.

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

    Yeah but who cares if she loses votes in Edmonton right, not like the City was going to vote for her either way...

    East Junction | 86m | 25s | Regency Developments | DER + Associates

    Oh yeah I agree that it will lease up. I just think that the business decision to cheap out on materials/design probably doesn't add up in the long run. The additional rent and faster lease up of a nicer looking building probably makes a nicer design worth it. I think The Hat developers have...

    East Junction | 86m | 25s | Regency Developments | DER + Associates

    They'd probably have an easier time leasing it out if it actually looked like a place anyone would want to live... Sometimes it feels like some developers don't realize that whether it's conscious or unconscious, most people do consider the exterior of the building in some way when renting or...

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

    This looks very similar to renderings I've done from sketchup/Revit models through Enscape. If we're making bets that would be mine.

    Homelessness, Addiction and Mental Health

    As someone who currently lives in Vancouver, this is such an inaccurate, disgustingly unsympathetic stereotype of the people of the DTES. There's so many people in that area that ended up there for a plethora of reasons. Some people chose the lifestyle yes, but far from most of them. Some grew...

    Windsor Park 118 Street DC2 - 6 storeys

    Yes, being left wing isn't synonymous with being an urbanist, or supportive of denser development. Sure, you could point out that it is pretty hypocritical as housing policy/direction directly impacts the social issues he cares about, but the same could be said for past Councilors who leaned...

    Windsor Park 118 Street DC2 - 6 storeys

    "While acknowledging Edmonton's needs to increase densification, Joe Miller, with the Windsor Park Citizens Coalition, said the location is not ideal." Classic. Literally two blocks away from the provinces largest university is not an ideal location for density. Nope. Edit: also I love that...

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

    In situations like this, it's not about being logically consistent, it's about using whatever excuse is convenient at the time to justify being against it.

    I generally like this, I just wish it wasn't completely surrounded by parking.

    Upper Vista Towers | 108m | 33s | EverTrust

    Upper Vista isn't even rezoned yet is it?

    Blatchford Development | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    Don't make the mistake of being too idealistic and thinking you can change things from the inside easily... speaking from experience. You can certainly nudge things in the right direction, but it will take years/decades or frustration, while being forced to maintain a status quo that you know is...

    The Clifton | 55m | 15s

    I find it funny that the marketing for this is clearly trying to sell the massive blank wall as some sort of "feature wall"

    East Junction | 86m | 25s | Regency Developments | DER + Associates

    Calling this brutalist is veeeerrry generous Lol. I'd put it in the catagory of just brutal.

    Old Remand Centre Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Boyle Street | Manasc Isaac

    Demoing a building so we can "build something else" without any specific plans. Never heard that one before. Would be surprised if we see anything in the next 15 years given the area.

    Oliver Crossing | 21m | 7s

    Why bother with that patch of brick if you're going to put zero effort into even minimal amounts of preservation?

    Ugh, so much available land in this City without needing to resort to greenfield.

    The Edward | 40m | 13s | ANU Developments | Gardner Architecture

    I don't think that he wasn't trying to specifically make a jab at you. It was a running joke on the edmonton forums for a while how shitty some of IanOs photos were, pretty sure he's just playing off that

    Blatchford Development | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I know it's around the provinces second largest university so the context is a lot different, but wow I hope the City is watching what Calgary is doing with the University District. This is what Blatchford should be looking like. It's impressive that they were largely able to start with the...

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

    Imagine if the train was running and their was people on the platform... transEd saved lives today
