    ^it would certainly save time and energy.

    Valley Zoo

    ^getting good? Have you ever watched a BBC sitcom called "Yes Minister"? I worked for the City for 14 yrs and (unfortunately), our section's yearly budget was always dropped in my lap to prep. We would prepare 4 scenarios as directed; maintain current, +4%, -2%, -5% (or some such amounts)...

    The Parks | 146.91m | 45s | 35s | 13s | Pangman | Hariri Pontarini

    ^^^don't be too quick, maybe they just haven't punched through the insulating barrier yet. I understand the lack of windows below as that will be covered by the tall podium. Then again, maybe they are cutting back on glazing. We'll know in a couple of days.

    Edmonton | Stadium Yards | ?m | 6s | Rohit Communities

    why are people so tied to the idea of the mega grocery store? The good folks in Manhattan get by with only 1 (one!) suburban format store (if it's even still there). The rest are neighbourhood block level bodegas and mid-sized stores like Gristeddes and D'agostinos. If you look at the Jasper...

    Edmonton City Centre Mall (Renovations) | ?m | 2s | LaSalle Investment Management

    hold on now. I live DT/Oliver. I don't have to "drive everywhere" as David A states, in fact, Oliver has one of, if not the highest walkability score of any neighbourhood in Edmonton. In fact, the only retail I cannot access without a vehicle at the moment is a hardware store; it's almost like I...

    ^the land was a parking lot back when I first moved here in 1980...I just thought it came with the city.

    The Mercury Block II | Hodgson Schilf Evans

    taking a good look at Mercury 1 yesterday over a pint at Brown's, I feel it's missed the mark; the interesting SW corner passage way into the inner courtyard is a missing element and the balcony railings, being black, blend into and disappear in the black walls. The whole thing could have been...

    LRT Expansion Planning

    why would I, as a tax paying Edmontonian, wish to pick up the bill for Beaumont to get LRT? Let Beaumont pay, (and the GOA). Like they say, "not my farm, not my pig". I only hope that some of the groundwork done by the recently demised regional transit authority is still around for a...

    2023 Predictions

    If the gondola does reanimate, I'd prefer it have little to do with integrating into the ETS system and more to do to tie existing attractions a gondola pass and get reduced entrance fees into the paid attractions. Route could go: (Muttart/Edmonton Queen/Edmonton Ski Club)...

    ^ I was looking at a unit for sale in the Galleria last spring but was put off by the fact that they do not have a reserve fund. That's right, not a typo and told to me by the realtor who happens to also own a unit in the building. At some point the majority voted to dissolve the fund and go...

    Legislature Grounds / Centennial Plaza

    a large temp fabric structure has been erected covering a good deal of the work area. I suppose so work can continue throughout the winter months.

    Centurion 118 | 47m | 15s | Next Architecture

    ^^I too drove by this afternoon and it does look like they're just redoing the parking lot... 1) they removed approx 1 - 1.5 ' of dirt. 2) there are dump trucks delivering clean gravel to the site now it's been leveled. 3) no sign of any sort of pilings being put into the ground.

    ^ let me just say that I'd never live there with the "neighbourhood" as it is. saying that a pedway makes it safer just reiterates how bad it is.
