I find this very disappointing. No residential and all the esthetics of a Nisku business park. I've always hoped that the 101Avenue Vision and Corridor Study would spur more thoughtful development.
As posted above,
I used to live about 4 blocks to the west of here (20ish years ago) and always felt 101ave had such cool main street potential. It still does have great potential. No more
I wish it weren't.It matches the street quite well. It's almost as if it's not even there!
I wish it weren't.
I'm starting to notice this more and more, but why do single-story strip mall type retail buildings always feel the need to have, like, 12 foot ceilings minimum? Half of that building's height is beige dead-space.
The only positive thing here is that the parking is not in the front, at least, so the business will be facing the sidewalk.
I'm also against the left-turn lanes at every intersection. For all I care, we should put a tree-lined median and only allow left turns in specific places.Slip lanes aside (at both 75th & 57th streets), I'm really liking this iteration.
