    Calgary | Gallery First & Tenth | 70m | 18s | Truman I FAAS

    For sure. It would have also destroyed Eau Claire, both the recreational wonderland that it is and the most expensive real estate property in Calgary. We have enough semi-freeways that roll through our downtown. Now let's fix that.

    General Construction Updates

    I don't think 17th Avenue has ever looked better. Ever since the pandemic created the now permanent patio program, 17th is transformed and better than ever because it's busier. While the patios have harmed pedestrian flow, they have enlivened the street like nothing before.

    Who will be Alberta's largest metro in a decade?

    I don't see a lot of difference between Houston, Dallas or Atlanta. Calgary can be reasonably compared to any of them, but it's much more like Denver than either of those 3.

    Who will be Alberta's largest metro in a decade?

    It's possible. Vancouver's big advantage is its huge immigration numbers. It's on track this year to attract around 60,000 immigrants. That's 1 million new people in less than 20 years at current rates. Calgary needs to start attracting over 30,000 immigrants a year before it will have a chance...

    Statscan numbers

    Even with current metro boundaries for Calgary CMA, there is a chance we hit 2 million by 2030. It would assume 50K annual growth over the 8 year period to 2030.

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

    I'm glad we have something iconic in this area to replace the landmark Saddledome. Maybe this will be the name frame for famous Calgary skyline photos.

    Calgary | Calgary Event Centre | 36.85m | 11s | CSEC | HOK

    They should convert the Saddledome to a parkade. Save the facade as much as possible

    Calgary's Homeless

    I haven't been in the City for 15 months, has it really gotten that bad so quickly at the Superstore? They used to have a security guard there whenever the store was open. The other side of shopping there is that some people don't have a choice but to shop there. Especially for people without...
