    Calgary Flames Official Thread

    The hair metal will be blasting all over Edmonton tonight.

    Developers are businesses. They are connected to the market and always have better insight into customer requirements than politicians or bureaucrats.

    Jamieson Place was Hy's restaurant. Livingston has been parking lots since at least the 1970's.

    Brookfield would cut whatever deal necessary to keep CNRL and Suncor in their existing buildings. Banker's Hall and the Suncor Towers are already Class AAA. What would be the motivation to move? If the office poposal is serious, a large cap O&G tenant would not be the target. Those companies...

    I disagree. That From a design perspective, that is the biggest issue. The podium s/b no more then 2-3 stories on the south, and 3-4 on the north. If Triovest thinks it can make money on the office portion, let it try. The City should not be incenting office to residential conversion as...

    Could this be a new Canada's tallest? Also, I can never keep clear which Mannix brother owns what. Which one owns each of: 1) Hyatt Hotel, 2) Keynote, 3) former Nexen Building? Regardless, they must have considerable confidence in the long term potential of DT to propose a project that could...

    That section of 7th has been deader than dead since the CTrain took over 7th. As a 8-9 year old, I would skip class and take the 3 bus DT to hang out at video arcades. That section of 7th had three arcades at its peak. The rest of the street as well as the adjacent section of 8th had a high...

    Industrial Development

    I wonder if CP is considering a major development out that way? At some point, it will outgrow Alyth and a massive swath of inner city, riverfront land will be up for redevelopment, albeit with large remediation liabilities.

    Calgary | Stephen Avenue Quarter | 241m | 66s | Triovest | Gibbs Gage

    Seems strange that a proposal of this scale, especially one including office space, would land right as interest rates climb and the real estate bubble seems set to burst. Yes Calgary is contrarian in almost all aspects, but a project this size would be very challenging to market. Also, very...

    Has a tentative LRT station been proposed for the area? I would expect it to be in the vicinity of the Cobalt mixed-use proposal

    Edmonton | Dentistry & Pharmacy Building Redevelopment | ?m | 7s | U of A | GEC

    Will this building finally connect to the LRT station? The original plan for University LRT had tunnel connection from DP through the station to Education.

    General Construction Updates

    That would be great. EV has stalled.

    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    Edmonton is far more decentralized than Calgary, both in terms of employment concentration and municipal governance, so it faces more battles. Edmonton has largely bungled rededevelopment of large inner city parcels: the former CN lands along the104th Ave corridor (ex. Grant McEwan University...

    Calgary Bike Lanes and Bike Paths

    That section of riverbank is likely due for some major engineering work in the near future: pathway is always wet or icy pathway is very narrow pathway repeatedly heaves and erodes uphill slope is slowly sliding railway is partially built on river fill. If regional passenger rail ever happens...
