Here are a few salient points we wanted to outline from the agreements:
Or ... heaven forbid there should be a cafe, restaurant, souvenir store/gift shop within half a mile of the river. No, we prefer to take the Soviet approach to dealing with visitors and then wonder why they don't always give Edmonton glowing reviews.I'm guessing the idea is to use the space for events/retail. They'd get top dollar for hosting things like conferences, weddings, etc. Smart use of space, imo.
We will be to the East of the Rossdale Power Plant, nestle in between the power plant and Epcor. There's currently an enclosed parking space that will be opened up as part of the Rossdale Transportation Network Redesign. Here is a design from their survey actually!There is a transmission station just N and NW of the power plant so I'd be interested to know how this will be incorporated into the proposed new gondola station.
This is a sketch that is used as a placeholder, it's not a schematic design so not at scale. However, it's true that the Rossdale Power Plant station will be one of two larger stations (Old Strathcona being the other) as our intent is for them to become hubs, places that you move in and out of but also that create community and realize local aspirations and needs. There could be Indigenous tour operator, reception space, restaurant, cafe, bar, paddle board & kayak rental, local art and anything else that supports the needs, access and enjoyment of the river valley and the Rossdale community.That Power Plant Station is rather large for a gondola, don't you think?
