After reigniting construction in May, there is now visible progress at the mixed-use Glenora project set to finally inject new life into a neglected site at Stony Plain Road and 142nd Street. The 3.5-acre West Block development, to be executed by InHouse — the infill division of Beaverbrook Communities — aims to succeed where previous owners failed.

Anchored by an urban square designed as a community focal point, the residential and commercial development will produce a trio of towers and a collection of stacked townhomes. The 60-unit 100 West Block, the first residential tower to market, will climb 16 storeys at the southwest corner of the site, where Stony Plain and 142nd meet.

The predominantly residential building is 60 percent sold, with many of the condominiums sizing in between 1,600 and 2,000 square feet. Indoor and outdoor lounging spaces, an enclosed dog run for the furry companions, and a fully stocked fitness centre are among the amenities slated to take root inside the glazed GEC Architecture-designed tower. There will also be an office component on the second floor, with retail occupying the ground level.

At the southeast quadrant, a three-storey commercial office and retail building dubbed 300 West Block will be attached to a residential tower that could potentially hold 24 floors. The northwest corner would host another residential building hosting a maximum of 12 storeys. A public plaza ties everything together with coffee shops, restaurants and patios sprawling across the landscape.
