    Comparing these to the Edgewater low-rises across the street it's really night and day.

    Iron Horse Line / Station Park | ?m | 6s | Beljan Development | Hodgson Schilf Evans

    The northern facade is pretty plain and uninviting compared to the old renders, is it complete at this point or will there be a bit more done to it?

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    I think this might be where we agree to disagree then, I think my top interest is that we have a city which is properly urban and enables active transportation and having all the stores people feel they need in a walkable area is an important step in that. Boutiques are nice, but much of the...

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    Hot take, but I think there's still a lot that the City can do short of demolishing the WEM. That said, if you're able to get your hands on a time machine, I'd agree that'd likely be the most effective option!

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    Pretty sure there are plenty of cities with street-facing H&M's and other major retailers, I've certainly seen a fair few myself. I think you might be slowly coming around to my main point though which is that there needs to be more done by the City to improve the vibrancy, attractiveness to...

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    I was thinking more retail (like the H&M or Best Buy you had mentioned), than fast food. I don't think anyone's traveling to a specific mall or shopping centre for their Starbucks fix. Once again going back to the comparison to malls and anchor tenants, Dairy Queen would not be an example of an...

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    First, wasn't meant as an attack really. I do think its a bit of a silly false dichotomy though to say we either only have major chains or we only have independents. Nearly all successful commercial strips I've been to are mixes of chains and independents. Clearly independent retailers on Whyte...

    Makes me wish the Galleria proposal could get revived.

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    I dunno, this comment feels like a big ole cope to me. "We want more vibrant and walkable communities, but things people actually want to go to are really just better being relegated to car-dependent malls and shopping centres!" The way I see it, an inability to attract more major retail chains...

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    Please do. Maybe without the crowds it was easier for me to notice all the crappy bits and that's colouring things... but I mean for one of the busiest shopping days of the year I didn't expect it to be quite so dead to begin with either...

    Old Strathcona / Whyte Avenue

    I dont want to be negative, but walked down the full length of Whyte Ave for the first time in quite a while and what a sorry state it seemed to have been in... possibly worst I've seen it since I've moved here. Litter and tags everywhere, tons of for lease signs
