    What is the point of those two posters about Brentwood with the bridge that goes over John Laurie? There's not even houses in the picture. No houses period is their desired outcome? Brentwood is more strip malls and the LRT Station, than park space.

    University would prefer McMahon demolished if I were to assume correctly. They probably would want to maximize the potential of a "University Village" for the entire land. So, if there was any plan to move the Stamps to a new stadium, they would be the first to cheer.

    I believe that 22X/901 east of the city limits in the south is intended to be a realigned HWY 1 bypass route; making use of the ring road in the city to reconnect with TCH in the west. So the government has the idea in place. Whether they ever bother to execute it remains to be seen. But that...

    If I was to bet if anything was going to happen, I agree that it would be a stadium on the Stampede ground. I'm just unsure if it would be a new stadium on the vacant Saddledome lands, or a major Grandstand renovation as you mentioned. I suppose that if the latter would have to happen at some...

    The city has indicated interest in renovating McMahon with the Foothills + McMahon Concept plan that they completed a few years ago. The city is trying to get funding for the Foothills Fieldhouse, and recently a councilor said they're going to make a master plan now to try get a detailed vision...

    With the role of 16th Avenue, and the lack of a proper E-W expressway in north Calgary, traffic flow will always be important on that road. But that doesn't mean that the pedestrian experience couldn't improve considerably. As mentioned above, the narrow and low quality sidewalks at certain...

    I would assume Stamps still generate revenue for CSEC, so they'll want to keep them to maintain their monopoly over pro sports entertainment in the city. But how much they would want to invest into the Stamps venue for both the short term and long term is up in the air. Don't think they are too...

    To be fair, acquiring the Stamps did change the game.

    Probably why they're making the switch. More money to be gained from the change. Same reason East Village switched from a Loblaws to Superstore.

    Agreed. With no new funding committed yet, I would hope that they would revisit the the track size for this facility. If we're gonna do this - and put hundreds of millions of dollars in to it - do it right. Hopefully the full funding actually comes into fruition within the next couple of years...

    Calgary | Green Line LRT | ?m | ?s | Calgary Transit

    I don't even see the benefit of the 301 BRT Max upgrades. The 301 and Route 3 seem to operate fine right now, and have rapid frequency throughout the whole day. Unless it's to build a transitway to setup the foundation of the NC Line (like how SETWAY was suppose to be foundational work for the...

    I never considered having 17 AV SE transitway be a streetcar. I always envision it would function like a spur line for the green line, and be a low floor LRV. Making it a streetcar instead is something to consider. It would be fairly lengthy for a route though (Chestermere to Westbrook/MRU), and...

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

    I do feel that the 17 Ave streetcar will happen at some point in the future. Likely would be part of the planned MRU line from Westbrook station. I think D should be done as well, to have a route that goes from river to river on 4 St. Hopefully at that point, Eau Claire will actually be...

    It's why although I would prefer for this to at least have one +16 story tower for a prominent gateway, the amount of units being proposed is good in the grand scheme. If they did a tower(s), it could be even more, but with all the projects they apparently have on the go, perhaps they don't...

    Not sure if Arlington Street's "High Street" latest render has been posted on this forum yet? https://www.arlingtonstreet.ca/developments/high-street/

    Calgary | Springbank Hill | ?m | ?s | Multiple Projects

    It's crazy how much desnity is coming into this area, and fast. There's no way at this point that they city/developers can pass up the opportunity of having a station for the West LRT extension be east of 85 ST SW. Skipping all this to have the next stop in a dead zone west of 85 ST would be...

    I do think the street level could be better. I'm not in alignment with the courtyard access being from the front. The orientation should be flipped so 17th and 14th are lined up with CRUs that aren't disrupted. But I'm okay with the height considering the number of units it provides.
