The fire was at Fox 1, inside of Kb&coI wonder which building was involved?
Since IBI was recently acquired by Arcadis (based in Holland with a small Edmonton office at 10665 Jasper Ave), I wonder if just the name will change in this new office to Arcadis or the scope of their lease will now change. I'm guessing the existing Arcadis office on Jasper will be closed and absorbed into the Bell Annex location now.
If most residential towers in the core already have gyms and/or pools, then the YMCA would be serving those that don't have those facilities as well as any office workers in the area that don't have such fitness amenities in their buildings. I wonder if most YMCA patrons pre-pandemic were office workers and with hybrid work, many are not coming Downtown much and thus don't see a need for a YMCA membership at that location.I heard that the downtown YMCA has less than half its membership pre pandemic. That's a huge hit even if the organization has deep pockets. Pools are extremely expensive to keep operating and I rarely see much activity going on when I go by. I'm concerned.
The facility is closed on Sundays as well as a way to cut some operating expenses.
I hope it can hold on.
