It looks really nice, but the plaza could really use a coffee shop, fast food place, brewery or a casual indoor hang out for people to linger around.

I still want to see A&W revive their old Greyhound terminal location in Block BG.
Starbucks was supposed to open in the Stantec building but then their plans changed in favor of suburbia expansion. Starbucks also shut down their location in the casino.
Canadian Icehouse should open sometime in the new year. I can't help but wonder what happens to the existing Canadian Brewhouse near 109 St/104 Ave.

Long as they don't "value engineer" the menu offerings too harshly from their UK establishments, that's some sweet news.

Will the design for the current block BG tower ever change since they’re waiting on starting work on the tower?
At this rate God, I think we'll be lucky to see any tower at all built on this site, ever.

But after nearly 1500 posts on this specific thread, they damn sure owe us a tower!!!

If they feel they will make money a tower will be built.

I would prefer for KG to focus on the baccarat site next, which is the next large gap they need to fill to really tie in the whole district IMO. Let the plaza fill up with more tenants, get the programming going, then start the BG tower. I think it's an easier sell, either as condos or rentals, once people can actually see the full extent of what the district has to offer.
