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

    I would be fine with the boring design if the rental prices were low. Budget building, budget rent. If the rents are high, it's a miss.

    Edmonton | Williams Hall | ?m | 7s | Beljan Development | Hodgson Schilf Evans

    Sandman (parent Northland Properties) owns Chop (among many other chains), so they have a strong incentive impede guest access to competing restaurants. The food hall at Williams Hall would be direct competition and the connection would really offer little value in return. It is petty though...

    Edmonton | Williams Hall | ?m | 7s | Beljan Development | Hodgson Schilf Evans

    If Williams Hall moves forward, I wonder what it would take for the Sandman next door to do something with their street-level facade? The SW corner of that block is one of the most bleak corners downtown.

    Edmonton | Riley's 108 Street Redevelopment | 20.2m | 6s | J+S Architect

    BC now allows up to 18 stories using mass timber. Likely coming to AB at some point.

    EVER (on Baseline Commercial Plaza) | Ever Red

    Another only-accessible-by-car hellscape, wedged between other only-accessible-by-car hellscapes.

    Mega stroad? Let 109 be the transportation corridor and have all the places for people on either side along the north edge where it should be.

    Edmonton | West Block | 60.35m | 16s | Beaverbrook | GEC

    I noticed that new access causing some traffic issues. It's a pointless duplication of 103 Ave, and it's kind of blind because there's street parking, so vehicles are creeping out to try and make turns.

    Edmonton | 9926 112 St. | ?m | ?s | Westrich Pacific

    Lifting a house would be trivial. The cost of doing so would be prohibitive. Someone with more knowledge can chime in whether a house is built to withstand wind at the top of a tower.

    Edmonton | Stationlands Residential Towers | 90m | 25s | Qualico | DIALOG

    I hope the elevated pathway looks better in execution than it does in the renders. Gives a "construction path/hoarding" vibe in the pictures, like it's temporary.

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

    So nice to see some colour being used in new construction. For an often-dreary winter city, we sure do like our drab palette. This is a welcome change. Looks great!

    Edmonton | Riley's 108 Street Redevelopment | 20.2m | 6s | J+S Architect

    CRUs should be spread out and not concentrated. The empty ones are in places where they aren't needed.
  12. S

    Edmonton | Riley's 108 Street Redevelopment | 20.2m | 6s | J+S Architect

    This should have a couple CRU's and be 10-12 stories minimum. Low-rise in the heard of dowtown is a fail.

    Edmonton | Stationlands Residential Towers | 90m | 25s | Qualico | DIALOG

    Who owns the parcels south of Epcor tower? Curious to know if there's any development plan for those parking lots.

    Edmonton | Holiday Inn & Candlewood Suites | ?m | 6s | IHG | JM Architecture

    Delta and Coast both need a little love. At least externally, as I haven't been inside either in a long while.

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

    Simons exists which has generally eliminated any need or desire to visit The Bay. The Bay shopping experience isn't competitive, at least at any locations I've been to.

    ICE Tower

    Dude, this is Edmonton. Up until about a decade ago 100m was an "ultra tall". I doubt we'll see anything come close to taking the crown from Stantec anytime soon. Sure sure, some on here believe the white picket fence company will do it but back in reality we're likely going to see a lot of 30...

    ICE Tower

    While exciting, it's kinda sad that the one corner on that intersection with a decent looking, functional building could be the first to be redeveloped.
  18. S

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

    By my count they're about half way up? North tower is 35 stories and I'm counting 18 (16 floors + 2 podium)?

    Edmonton | Williams Hall | ?m | 7s | Beljan Development | Hodgson Schilf Evans

    This seems like an odd location for subsidized rentals when there are unlimited cheap walk ups across the city and vacant land to build new ones, and this location would be prime for some fresh lofts.

    Edmonton | West Block | 60.35m | 16s | Beaverbrook | GEC

    Edmonton has far too many "luxury" 1-2bdr apartments, and damn near no "modest" 3-4bdr apartments for families and WFH. Doesn't surprise me that there's low demand for the fancy stuff.
