It's a dog park for toys -- a token effort that allows the rest of the site to be retained for surface parking -- money, money, money -- waiting for Edmonton's next BOOM before entertaining anything other than beep-beep/poop-poop.
My bet would be that it will connect through the Arena/Casino, but it would be SUPER cool to see it connect to the Edmonton Tower over 104 AveJust a random thought, but I wonder if whatever gets built there will be disconnected from the Pedway network of Edmonton Tower, JW, Stance, Rogers, Connect Centre, etc... Seems like a long ways across the road for a pedway to travel, and would cut right into an office tower.
Ice District is quite a huge transformation, but it is correct we are only about half way there. Even in a larger city, with much bigger ambitions, it would take a lot of time to build something of this scale.Yup, photos like this remind me we've got a long way to go before we're no longer the Cleveland of Canada.
