Does that mean phase 2 might be 4+ years out? I'd imagine they would do it all at once if they were confident in starting tower 2 soon...
And wasn't the podium connected in renderings? Does this mean it won't be?
I was in elementary school when those got built haha. What was the process? They did one and then connected the podium for the second a year or 2 later? Any pics of when there was just 1?Look at Icon I/II, Falcon I/II.
Phased works for a variety of reasons including site logistics, financing/pre-sales and capacity.
Sadly, as long as greenfield development has free reign in Edmonton, this will continue to be the case.Ok, cool. I guess that makes sense! Always makes me sad though to realize we have to
Phase developments of 2 30story apartments when Vancouver and Toronto can master plan 10 tower neighbourhoods and essentially build them simultaneously i feel like we could see change so fast if the economics would work to enable that. Hard to accept that it'll be 1-3 towers per a year for another decade to really get to where we need to be. Seems like even Calgary is pumping out a lot of 2 and 3 tower projects fast now.
Totally. I sont expect edmonton to ever had projects like those cities, just sad to see us progressing a lot more slowly on urbanism, decreasing car dependency, etc.Toronto has over 6 million people, Vancouver almost twice as many as here, along with severe geographic constraints. Anyone who expects a similar number of projects here will likely be disappointed.
It makes total sense to do this project in two phases, similar to others in the past.
