    Wow! That empty lot is finally being developed. It's been there since I went to elementary school at St. Gerard's in the 80's. Always wondered why nothing ever got built after they redeveloped the old Shell station across the street.

    Well like her or not Druh stuck to her guns when it came to urban design. She fought for the Peace bridge among many other things. I can’t see her voting in favour of this project.

    Got through the paywall and read the article. I have zero hope now. Gondek and Wong (who is a terrible replacement for Farrell btw) both sound desperate to rubber stamp any large development DT at any cost. Development for the sake of development. Calgary’s ethos that has led us to this point of...

    I can't see past the paywall. What did Gondek say? At least there's finally talk of retaining more than facades. Hopefully some attention gets paid to 7th Ave as that is the worst feature of the entire proposal. I have my doubts though. Still wish this wasn't happening.

    Having lived in that area for many years I'm side to see the picturesque landscape replaced by this development. It was inevitable, but still a sad substitute.

    The Lieutenant Governor has now stated she won’t give assent to Smith’s law if it is unconstitutional.

    Yet. These are Ontario(Toronto) investors.

    Presuming that half of them don't sit empty as has happened with numerous investor driven towers before. Also, this could be the beginning of the destruction of more heritage properties on that block since it seems its cheaper for developers to buy them than empty parking lots.

    Historical architecture loss aside, this project concerns me for another reason. The last thing Calgary needs is Toronto real estate speculators coming in to drive up the cost of housing here. In what universe is a 475 sf studio apartment starting at $400k normal? The post also said some...

    Smith will faceplant with her Sovereignty bill. I just hope she doesn't completely destroy our healthcare system in the 6 months she has as Premier.

    Anyone wanting a good laugh should check out this thread on SSP where p_xavier is claiming that Alberta is on the brink of becoming a breakaway white nationalist state. Oh and he threatens to sue the site if they don't take down his ridiculous posts and the ensuing debate...

    Calgary | Gallery First & Tenth | 60m | 19s | Truman

    Are we really fawning over an out of province investor driven tower, featuring closet sized condos that will demolish one of few remaining historic blocks with multiple CRU's? At least the new renderings are honest and show the ocean of parking lots across the street where this should be built...

    That level of secrecy should be illegal. Calgarians deserve transparency before any decision gets made on this. I retract my earlier prediction of it dying on the vine. This very much feels backdoor dealing.

    Theoretically if the Saddledome became unusable before there is a new arena where would the Flames play? Maxbell Arena?

    Doesn't the arrival of the AHL farm team here kind of undermine the Flames' threats to move? Still waiting for some Tsuut'ina arena deal announcement one day though.
