I think this building just had to come down because of LRT.

You can see how much it sticks out compared to all the newer buildings in brewery

It was definitely torn down for that. They ran a news story on it a while back. A lady had a business there and didn't want to vacate yet because at that point LRT construction was still over a year away from starting. She wanted CoE (who is owner of the building after expropriation) to allow her to stay operating for longer, but they denied her request. That's why it sat empty for up until now

Alberta Avenue
Looks really nice, very excited by the possibility of more non-market housing getting built. That said, I worry that if this were ever built Chinatown would just become even more weighted down than it already is, these sorts of services really ideally need to be more spread out through the city.

and getting away with it.
I predict once this newest version of a doomed nightclub opens and closes in this location they'll have an "uh oh" and be rewarded with insurance $$ Calgary-style... Funny that! SMH... Even when I was still pounding jaggerbombs at Brewster's and Druid back in the day we'd never go to anything as awful as whatever happened to be open at Jasper and 108 in this location... And that says something when drunk journalism school students who love pitchers of unlimited tap beer from Boston Pizza won't go near a place...
