    Thank you for being positive on this thread. I think the tardiness of Transed is just something to avoid fixating on at this point lol. shit happens. In other news, Marigold has 2 segments up by West Ed now. I thought it was cool that they're forming the viaduct as segments pier-to-pier, out of...

    Edmonton | Falcon Towers | 170m | 44s | Langham Developments | Arc Studio

    did they get all the permits for this yet or are they still running on the 'structure only' one from a few months ago?

    East Junction | 86m | 25s | Regency Developments | DER + Associates

    They were trying to sell the Emerald site on Jasper a few months ago. I have no idea where that landed on Regency's end, we looked at it for a client but that particular sale didn't move on. there's no way Regency isn't floundering right now. overextended on land, giant, high-capital projects...

    Edmonton | Hat @ Old Strathcona | 66.14m | 20s | Cidex Group

    weird depth... is this only 1 level u/g parkade? I think that's totally fair, given the size of the site, and unit count, and not wanting to overbuild (and thus overspend and have to overcharge in rent) for parking, but i'm still a bit surprised. idk. thanks for sharing!

    General Infill Discussion

    Where does the new zoning bylaw 'open up the river valley to more development'? are there adjustments to the A/AP zones that do this?

    Edmonton | Grandin Tower 2 | 113.99m | 36s | Westrich Pacific | Chris Dikeakos

    This is the one i was referring to, I believe TAS was referring to the same. it was listed for sale a couple months ago. 113st foursquare-apartment conversion

    Edmonton | Grandin Tower 2 | 113.99m | 36s | Westrich Pacific | Chris Dikeakos

    Thanks, i wasn't aware of all the background drama. the building is in good shape. heavily renovated, but it's one of the last of those big foursquare-turned apartments left in Oliver. once it's boxed in (as things seem to be headed) it will be a funky little property. it seems to have some...

    Edmonton | Grandin Tower 2 | 113.99m | 36s | Westrich Pacific | Chris Dikeakos

    the house-6plex conversion thingamajig on the lot immediately north of the 6-storey woodframe site to the west of this (facing 113 st, across the back alley from the tower/demo site shown in photos here) went up for sale a couple months ago. the whole building, being sold as an income property...

    Edmonton | The Clifton | 55m | 15s

    OOOOOOOH that's what those panels are! I thought they were some kind of polished cementboard. Porcelain is a great product; the terracotta on the Ledge dome lasted a century before needing replacement. it's an exciting product if used right. tbh i think this wall is too big for a material so...

    Edmonton | The Clifton | 55m | 15s

    Had a presentation at work today by a cladding supplier, Porcelanosa. they have a proprietary porcelain rainscreen system that they were pitching; they specialize in mimicking natural materials, including wood and stone. their panels run from 3.5mm - 12mm, so as you can imagine, not a lot of...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    i got a new high score on my Oliverbahn bike count this morning. i walk along the 102 Ave bike lane from 114 to 124 2-3x a week, and i usually count the bikes that go by. usually that number hovers around 30 in the morning, 40 in the evening, over the course of the 15-20 minutes i'm going...

    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    Wait, what the heck? when did a mockup for the new LRVs get delivered?! I WANNA SEE thanks for sharing this. these interiors look like a spaceship. i worry about some of the lights and screens getting vandalized/freezing/failing prematurely, but these are pretty slick trains! Hopefully they are...

    Capital Line LRT

    I remember the proposal for the Blatchford extension included (at one point prior to construction start, so this may have changed) 6 new SD160s, to match the existing fleet. I'm speculating here, but i wouldn't be surprised if the city went with more SD160s as opposed to the SD200s. matching the...

    I just checked the Edmonton rezoning map and its saying a 6-storey 79-unit building is going up there. I'm not sure how to get access to the rezoning application yet, or if it's public.

    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    This makes sense. From what i saw of the old road, I'm betting SPR is going to be regraded, not just replaced. the old one was level/higher than surrounding roads and properties, I'm betting the new one is 12"-24" lower to drain better. this would impact all the storm sewers in the area, as well...

    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    So, guesses on what the goal is for the SPR closure West of Groat? The road is closed until Nov. 2023 (this fall, 5-6 months from now). the road is being completely removed, from ROW edge to ROW edge. Everything is gone. and i doubt it'll be replaced by Nov, even in temporary form. any thoughts...

    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I was walking under the Tawatina on Saturday and i noticed the pier on the South end that they were working on it all done, the concrete refinished and everything. I haven't seen testing in the last few weeks, but my travels only take me near the line on strange intervals and times. Are trains...

    Edmonton | Coronation Community Recreation Centre | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton | Dub Architects

    Is this tying into the existing Corontation Arena, or is that being replaced too? I thought the existing arena was deemed too far gone, and was getting replaced as a phase of this project, but that doesn't track well with the fact that it's still standing.
