Anyone know if there is something going on with the lot at the SE corner of 10th & 10th SE ?(east of Vantage Pointe). Was by there yesterday and it’s fenced off.
Nothing unusual there today; it's a mostly fenced off pay parking lot (entrance on 10th St), like it has been for years. The stall markings are pretty bright looking; perhaps they were being touched up?

I wonder how many will use this with traffic blazing by on multiple sides. It’s going to get fenced in too I imagine, to keep toddlers from playing frogger on Edmonton Trail.

Edit: I guess the playground is at the far east end, so only overhead traffic.

My thought as well. It looks like they put fencing in behind the top of the slides so children don't jump onto the flyover. I just can't see it being an enjoyable place for me to hang out with my two year old, especially when you have the park in Bridgeland, St. Patrick's Island and Prince's Island all within a ten minute walk.
 
There’s an office building (Remington) across Metis Trail from MKWW train station that has been stalled for many years (12 years?) - with just the elevator cores built.

Today it had two giant “For Lease” banners hung up on the elevator cores.

perhaps Remington is finally intending to finish it?
It'd be nice if they finally finished that off.
 
Th park at The Royal has started construction. My drunken wisdom told me to stop and take a photo somehow.

Totally forgot about the Inglewood Park! That's dope. That makes 4 parks in the inner city under construction or under total revitalization (Inglewood Park, Flyover Park, Elbow Island Park, and Humpy Hollow Park)...

Speaking of which, Flyover Park is coming along nicely...

The irony with traffic calming is that it has actually resulted in more deaths in some places due to the increased response time for emergency services.

While probably true (at least in aggregate across the entire continent), I bet that is true mostly in patchwork municipalities, with calming on an inappropriate for calming road put in by a rich small town at the expense of its neighbours.
 
A quick google search would give you all the info you want...

It was a presentation I had attended that spoke of the impacts of traffic calming and emergency vehicle response time. There was a case study from a city in Arizona I think. Was 5-10 years ago so I can't recall the specifics.
