I just happened to go by and see this. I have mixed feelings. I would have preferred something else here, but this looks like it could be fairly nice.

In my opinion, it was really one of the nicest Scotiabank branches and it is too bad they closed it. However, it wasn't the closest one for me, so it, so it didn't affect me too much.

Because keeping all the buildings connected would be too practical, and my truck says I'm not allowed to do that; so I'm gonna shotgun blast buildings all over this parking lot!
Crap like this makes me nostalgic for 70s era strip malls, at least they were still a strip!

Disappointing, but entirely unsurprising.

On the note of Calgary Trail / Gateway Boulevard. It needs to be an absolute priority for the city to add sidewalks to the stretch between 51 Ave and Whyte Ave (ideally everywhere, but that stretch for absolute certain). Embarrassing.
But who on their right mind would walk down that sidewalk if built?

People who work in the area. People who don't have access to a car. People walking to grab lunch while working. Someone who takes transit which stops 500m from their destination who's maybe mobility challenged and can't properly navigate the complete lack of infrastructure there now. Etc, etc, etc.

It's the primary entrance to our city, it's an embarrassment.
