    Edmonton Oilers

    Found out he was traded, got on a flight, had a meal and a nap, barely met his new teammates, and went out and still played some incredible hockey. Ekholm looked so good in the back end. The rest of the D looked much more comfortable, Nurse in particular. Really fun game. This final stretch of...

    Edmonton City Centre Mall (Renovations) | ?m | 2s | LaSalle Investment Management

    Definitely on board with this attitude. There's still lots of things to look forward to and hope for in an area with tons of potential.

    Edmonton City Centre Mall (Renovations) | ?m | 2s | LaSalle Investment Management

    ^ I remember when I first moved to Edmonton, living downtown, I was so confused why all the street-front entrances to stores were blocked off and papered over. It made me wonder why they were there in the first place.

    Edmonton City Centre Mall (Renovations) | ?m | 2s | LaSalle Investment Management

    Visibility and perception are certainly issues, but there is a very real danger behind that too and I don't know if it's fair to say there isn't. The absence of people going about everyday business downtown (working, shopping, dining, etc.) just makes the people going about less savoury types of...

    New Zoning Bylaw

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    Coronation Community Recreation Centre | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton | Dub Architects

    I know it's still years away, but very excited for this to open. I've wanted a solid fitness facility/rec center in my area since I moved into my current home. Peter Hemingway has been closed the entire time I've lived here and the re-opening seems to keep getting pushed, and Commonwealth is...

    Edmonton City Centre Mall (Renovations) | ?m | 2s | LaSalle Investment Management

    Hmm some mixed feelings for this. I really disliked waiting for a bus at that location. It smelled terrible (cigarettes, weed, urine, who knows what else) and always had people in some sort of fights or screaming matches during rush hour. In an ideal world, that would be a great bus stop since...

    WSP Place | ?m | 12s | ProCura Real Estate | Manasc Isaac

    A couple of quick snaps from my phone while grabbing late night ice cream from La Carraia. It still looks sharp, but a little less so at the moment with the For Lease banner on it.

    Usually once a week, I head into the office. I have started taking the LRT and walking through part of the core instead of biking directly to my office. A few observations from my commute through downtown this morning and the past month or two (based only on feelings/perceptions and not...

    Warehouse District Park

    The passive vs active use style park is such a great point. A lot of parks in cities around the world I have seen have some great features within them: Cafes/food stalls, bike rentals, sports and workout equipment, gardens, cafes, fountains, museums, viewpoints, playgrounds, public art, and...

    Manchester Square | ?m | 2s | 76 Group Co | Gardner Architecture

    I do appreciate that they use it for the Grand Market on Saturdays, although last time I checked it out, it was pretty sparse in vendors.

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    I came across that thread as well - gave me a bit of a headache reading those comments. Most common type of comment I saw was "I've never seen anyone biking here, these bike lanes are a waste of tax payer money!" and other similar ramblings.

    Yes, still closed.

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    Companies like VIA Rail, CN, CP, give only the barest minimum to passenger travel. Their routes are often long, highly expensive, and poorly scheduled. There is simply no incentive or competition for them to offer a reasonable product. Their primary focus is on freight delivery. Regarding an...

    Noisy vehicles

    It's not just sleep disruption. Noise pollution does impact our health and wellbeing, whether or not we are used to hearing it. High levels of noise tends to cause stress and raise blood pressure. So every time someone decides to rev their engine to dangerous decibel levels, that's thousands of...

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

    I think placing additional constraints on a company that has been unable to complete this properly without said constraints may not be the best move - particularly by adding heightened public safety risks into the mix.

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

    Wow, that's super disappointing. I'm astonished at how bad the concrete quality is and that the project was even allowed to progress to this stage, despite low initial quality test results. I really wonder at the internal decisions made to proceed forward. The continual problems on LRT projects...

    I might have missed it, but does anyone know what this project currently under construction is? I live very close to it and pass by it frequently, but haven't had a chance to look into it much. It used to be a pre-owned car lot not long ago, pretty thrilled that's gone. Progress is also a decent...

    Pope Francis visit to Western Canada - July 24-27

    Hah neat (sort of), I got stuck behind his entourage of security and RCMP on Sunday. The classy gentleman in front of me didn't seem particularly happy about it and, after a certain point, turned off onto 90th Ave while revving his engine and flipping them off. Very brave.

    I don't think it's fair to discount the experiences of the people who actually live in the area. While I'm glad you had a great time, people are not lying when they mention these rough experiences. DT currently has a lot of great things to offer and it has amazing potential, but it has some...
