    Calgary | Yellowstone | 67m | 20s | Amble Ventures | NORR

    I saw the fencing and was coming here and break the news, but somebody beat me to it!

    Good to see the government bringing some action, but it seems like a case of too little too late. Especially too late, this should’ve been announced four years ago.

    Calgary | Arts Commons | 18m | 4s | City of Calgary | KPMB

    There are two main reasons I like this design, one is that it has curves, and will stand out in an area where everything is boxy. The other is the wood exterior, which will stand out against all the gray cement in the area.

    Calgary International Airport

    Dude you said this before and it’s a pointless take. You can come up with a million “if onlys” but in the end it doesn’t change anything, it only makes people look envious. It sucks that Edmonton isn’t close to the Rockies or to Banff, but you need to get over it.

    The DeHavilland project hasn’t even started construction. Is there already another facility in Calgary?

    Calgary | Midtown Station | ?m | ?s | IBI Group

    If they ever built this out to even half of what's shown in the rendering, a station will be built.

    Calgary | Kings Landing | 21m | 6s | Uptown Residential | NORR

    Good progress on this one, going right into spring, this'll rise quickly.

    Calgary | Magna | 21m | 6s | Jayman | Integra Architecture

    I don't know of any area in the city that has seen as much dramatic change as U/D. Bridgeland is up there, but not at this level in this period of time.

    @TarpsTarps, if you are able to snag the odd construction pic while at any sites, it would be much appreciated :)

    Sunalta Heights | 88.39m | 27s | Housing One | S2 Architecture

    It's too bad they couldn't build a towers on both sides of the LRT tracks.

    The wood styled panels look good.

    But wouldn’t widespread permissive zoning eventually make all those properties currently allowing high density, cheaper in the end? And wouldn’t that make them cheaper to develop? I’m going with the theory that currently you have a large part of city zoned for either SFH or the high density...

    I agree 100% the city needs to look into ways to develop those underutilized areas, but having higher zoning only for specific areas is what got us into this problem in the first place. We’ve seen so many land speculators here in Calgary buy lots in developable areas only to sit on the land...

    I like the blue. It’s a nice change from the usual.

    Alberta Provincial Politics

    Nenshi shaking things up might be just what’s needed for the NDP. The party’s image to many a Calgarian is an Edmonton centric party with a strong union mentality and an image of being unfriendly for business. For many at translates to a risk to Calgary’s economy, and a hiring spree of unionized...

    Having the DIC in EV will always be a hindrance to EV’s growth, but there’s still a chance for EV to grow. The growth won’t be though condo development of owner occupied units though, but instead through purpose built rental annd affordable housing projects.

    Calgary Flames Official Thread

    Outside of Markstrom they've traded the key players. It's all over but the crying, time to go full on re-build.
