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

    In that case, should this project not be listed as "under construction" on the map?

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

    Does anyone know the current status of this project? I understand that construction was halted while preparations were made to search a portion of the site for unmarked graves, and the resulting survey didn't turn up anything. Has work resumed since then, or have they re-evaluated their plans?

    Jasper Avenue New Vision / Imagine Jasper Avenue

    Jasper Avenue will continue to be a busy, highly trafficked thoroughfare if we continue to build it as a busy, highly trafficked thoroughfare. Build it and they will come, as the saying goes. If we treat it like a multi-modal high street with an emphasis on forms of travel other than cars...

    Jasper Avenue New Vision / Imagine Jasper Avenue

    If we had a robust transit system serving Jasper Avenue and the surrounding areas, then road traffic would likely decrease substantially. 102 and 100 Avenues do not run the length of the built-up areas around downtown.

    101 Avenue Vision | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I wish it weren't. I'm starting to notice this more and more, but why do single-story strip mall type retail buildings always feel the need to have, like, 12 foot ceilings minimum? Half of that building's height is beige dead-space.

    Without criticism there is no motivation to improve.

    Oh interesting, didn't realise there was a discord.

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

    I happened to drive past Davies station at around midnight a few Sundays ago, not a single other car on 75 Street as far as I could see. The station was all lit up, and no one was around. Foolishly I didn't stop to grab a photo, but it was really very pretty, and a bit surreal. Who else is gonna...

    Jasper Avenue New Vision / Imagine Jasper Avenue

    I've just read through this thread after a lengthy absence, and I find myself pretty conflicted. On the one hand, the new sidewalks are well designed and look good, but have to be properly maintained as many have pointed out. On the other hand, it's underwhelming. That promotional photo on the...

    What countries have you travelled to?

    Canada: -British Columbia -Alberta -Ontario -New Brunswick -Prince Edward Island -Nova Scotia (I have travelled more in PEI and Nova Scotia than in Alberta, if you can believe that. I've been to Halifax as many times as I have Calgary) United States: -California -Montana Germany: -Munich...

    Maclab Garneau | Laurent | Eleanor | 98.14m | 30s | Maclab Development

    I was in the area on Friday. The surface parking lot is closed, and the whole site is fenced off. I had planned to park there so I had a bit of a change of plans, but I took it to be a good sign. I'm glad I wasn't wrong!

    Substation #600 | ?m | 3s | Beljan Development | Hodgson Schilf Evans

    I just drove past today, everything's looking great. Would love to be part of that tour, if possible.

    Capital Line LRT

    I'm going to get in a car accident if I don't stop staring in disbelief that someone would actually put out a Mike Nickel lawn sign.

    Capital Line LRT

    Is that the same new LRV facility being planned for the Montrose area?

    Capital Line LRT

    As far as I can tell from the article I read, it would only be two additional stations: Twin Brooks and Ellerslie. It doesn't include a full extension to Heritage Valley, which I suppose is the aforementioned future phase.

    Yea, I don't hate it. I quite like the idea of the exterior tile, but I can't shake the feeling that the colour choice is a bit odd.

    Exhibition Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    Exactly. The plan would have it replaced by residential towers, as if anything they could come up with would replace the draw and presence that the coliseum has or could have.

    Jasper and 115 Street | 170m | 52s | Greenlong | ACAI

    I do hope this won't lead to any radical changes in the design. They really nailed it (visually speaking).

    Horne and Pitfield Building Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Limak Investments

    Their specific advice is bad, but the tower as it looks now is like two different buildings stacked together. The transition is too jarring, as if they started from the top and then ran out of budget before reaching the bottom. I'd be much happier with it if its design were more consistent over...

    Exhibition Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I'm quite conflicted about the city's plan in its current form. Overall it's very... underwhelming, and the outright refusal to consider re-purposing the coliseum is simply baffling. I do like certain aspects of it though, such as expanding Borden Park, the two new LRT stations, and medium/high...
