I'm sure not sure what the sell for sky would be compared to encore. Their larger units with the dining spaces are awesome for 600-800k. Way better than what 700k gets you in Sky.

And sky is definitely better than encore on amenities, but encore is still top 5 in the city, so you aren't sacrificing a lot.

Haha ok thats funny, "forget the layout, the view is to die for"*

*the view:

View attachment 375366

Nothing like forgetting about layout to spend more $/sqft. than makes sense for Edmonton for a north downtown view of the gravel parking lots and homeless shelters.

*Uses worst angle of the view from a north-facing window (which isn't even that bad)*

"Lol this tower succkssss!!!1! 🤣🤣"

The slow to no sales in the building is a solid indication that any view regardless of direction is not enough to entice buyers. So go ahead and pick another view, hasnt changed the outcome to date.

Kind of weird…….article proclaims “end of 2022 for an opening.” Why is this story being run now?

I think because the opening of this has been pushed back a couple of times - and now it's end of 2022. Workers coming down with COVID has slowed this project down according to Tim Shipton.

This is similar to stories on LRT opening being pushed back again and again.

I realize this project has been going really slowly, but the construction seems to be getting close to completion. I am guessing it has 3 to 6 months more to go before it is done, so by summer.

I wonder if there is just some COVID caution in projecting the date further ahead. Maybe it has to do with food supply chain disruptions and uncertainly as to when that will improve.

I would imagine its less food supply chain and more just waiting for the pandemic to end so a brand new store dowmesnt have to weather a lockdown its first few months. With stuff opening up and offices returning, that should help!
