    Edmonton's population is booming, where are all the new proposals?

    It's a good thing Edmonton is seeing a pretty aggressive LRT expansion compared to other metro areas within the same population range. The lack of inner-city highways in Edmonton is probably going to cause uniquely bad traffic conditions should the city see 2 million people. But I think this...

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

    This project just makes sense. Two cities ~ 300km apart (golden distance for HSR to be competitive with flying), no major water bodies or difficult terrain to pass, existing rail corridor, relatively cheap land. I just hope it isn't watered down to an Amtrak Acela version of high-speed rail...

    Edmonton's population is booming, where are all the new proposals?

    South and west of the Henday in particular seems to have more development than other parts. I will be interested to see how effective the multiplex zoning pans out to be. A lot of cities (Victoria, Minneapolis, Toronto, Vancouver) have seen very few actually built despite being allowed...

    Edmonton's population is booming, where are all the new proposals?

    Edmonton grew at 4.5% in 2023 and we can expect 4.4% in 2024. Why have we not seen a flood of new development proposals? Is this just a result of the current lending environment? Are housing starts being absorbed by the city's new multiplex laws (which don't require rezoning)? Or is most of the...

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

    Thanks, I was curious as there has been quite the outrage in Toronto over the Eglinton crosstown not having full signal priority. I guess the systems will be very similar in operation.

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

    Does the Valley line currently operate with full signal priority, or do trams stop at red lights?

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

    In a perfect world we would just contract JR or SNCF to build out and completely manage these projects. Even bring over workers from Europe or Asia if it means more efficiency. Yes its nice to create jobs in Canada but I can already see any HSR being plagued with problems and overruns as soon...

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

    Almost looks like the retail space has been designed at double height in anticipation of a grocery tenant. I wonder if H-mart is interested in moving down the street, their current space definitely feels cramped.

    Tower 101 | 175m | 50s | Regency Developments | DER + Associates

    I hope not, terrible scheme as it stands. Needs a new developer and design team with some actual vision and respect for materiality. Literally the center of Downtown and they want to put up a cheap spandrel glass condo. 🤷‍♂️ The site would be great as a park akin to smithe and richards in...

    South Edmonton Hospital & Health Campus | ?m | ?s | Province of Alberta

    Well if Smith gets leadership we can say bye-bye to any new investments in healthcare for a while. Might put this site at risk too.
