First time poster coming forth from the shadows here. The first thing I would like to say is 'thank you' for always keeping such a positive and constructive tone on this forum; it's a breath of fresh air compared to other forums that shall not be named.

Secondly, and I'm not sure if there is a thread for this already, does anyone have any information about what Westrich has planned across the street from McKernan gates? There is a big sign up there now saying something along the lines of 'modern rentals'. I don't remember reading anything about that and I'm curious. Thank you!

Thanks Kyle! I am familiar with this project though; the one I'm curious about is essentially across the street (on the other side of the tracks) and is a Westrich project.

The architect for this project is Ed Gooch so I am not hopeful for the architectural design of the building...

Oh yeah, I know where this is now. I remember this was an RA8 rezoning. I don't expect it will be anything groundbreaking (pardon the pun) here, but if it is in fact Westrich then I have a bit of hope that they will execute a half-decent project even with EFG as the architects.

Interesting tidbit in the Admin report:

Along with the rezoning, a Restrictive Covenant in favour of the City of Edmonton was placed on the parcels to prevent vehicular access from the site from the University Avenue NW service road, which is intended for a future multi-modal “greenway”.

@ Daveography, maybe they are finally giving consideration to a proposal that I submitted to upgrade 76th Avenue to a multi-modal east-west connection that could go all the way to Sherwood Park (when CP decides what it is that they are going to do with the former rail yards).
