    City Parks, Rivers, and Wildlife

    I expect the City will be looking to develop a paved pathway connection through the park approximately as shown below (following the existing more gently sloped dirt pathway that already runs across the hill). This would be a great connection of a missing link between Cougar Ridge / West Springs...

    Great to see the new Two House Brewing open and packed on a Friday night. But with just the one bike rack, over 20 people had to lock their bikes to a railing, sign, tree etc. I put in a 311 ticket asking the city to install more racks nearby and hopefully others will too - i've heard...

    That pathway extension to connect to the Bow River at Edworthy is underway now!

    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    One thing to note about any suburban community in Calgary built in the last 4 years or so. Almost all lots are zoned to a minimum of R-G (similar to RC-G in the inner city). This means that the developer, and any future owners, can build up to 4 units (depending on lot size) plus secondary...

    There was a mobile crane unloading several trucks of pre-fab walls, stairs, etc. today.

    I heard Safeway/Sobeys were tearing down the building to expand the parking lot...

    Calgary Bike Lanes and Bike Paths

    Thanks for that interesting and detailed analysis! Despite the average trip distance being fairly low, I believe I heard in a previous Lime presentation that Calgarians on average take longer e-scooter trips than most cities - perhaps because of our extensive river path network. In the City's...

    Calgary | Montgomery Square | 15.85m | 4s | Eagle Crest | FAAS Architecture

    The new building is level, the road is sloped.

    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    2nd Street was already scheduled for repavement due to the condition of the roadway. Plenty of surface cracking, patches from utility work, drainage issues etc. If the City waits too long to mill and repave a roadway, they have to do a full depth repair and replace all the road gravels too...

    General Construction Updates

    They definitely dredged it out at least - I floated down that channel on the south side of Elbow Island a couple of times early this summer. It was almost like going through a long tunnel with the big trees overhanging.

    Calgary | West District | ?m | ?s | Truman

    There are other buildings under construction for West District. Some townhome product and this one. It is further east off of 77 Street.

    Calgary Bike Lanes and Bike Paths

    Based on the latest City counts, bike volumes are very similar between 2 St and 11 St SW. Anecdotally as someone who uses both 2 St and 5 St regularly, 5 St south of 17 Ave has higher peak commuter bicycle traffic but 2 St is more...

    General Construction Updates

    That's a self-storage facility I believe. Here's the report from when the land went to Calgary Planning Commission for re-zoning

    Calgary Skylines

    Yep, I was just thinking about that spot too! Probably as good as it gets for a direct south view of downtown.

    Making good progress on the excavation

    Calgary | BMO Centre Expansion | 25m | 5s | CMLC

    I believe part of the extra space is to relocate the BMO complex's data centre, which currently resides in a part of the building that is going to be demolished for the new expansion.

    General Construction Updates

    I believe you're referring to the Inglewood Sanitary trunk project, which is apparently nearing completion.

    Calgary | The Fifth | 17m | 5s | Arlington Street | NORR

    I might swing by and take a photo on my way home. This is worth a 311 ticket from a few of us to put the pressure on for a better solution.
