Do they own land over there? I like that this pushes north and helps to breakdown the "wall" of 104. More north facing stuff is badly needed. I also like that it's central to the SU building that just got done. Will add some depth to the campus!Like the design, dislike the decision on the location.
I would have put this on the far east side of campus as close to the CBD as possible; front and centre at 105/104ave.
Yeah, honestly afraid of what our downtown would be without UofA, Macewan, Norquest and a few other small schools there/adjacent. If we had them farther away like UBC, it would be rough.The question was asked in the video clip from Global but not answered - when is construction expected to start on this great plan.
I love what MacEwan U has done and they are continually enhancing the Southside fronting 104Ave. I was told the plan is to remove all vehicle access from 104 Ave and so any parking on the Southside will be gone.
As was shared earlier, one of the plans is for outdoor sport courts at 108st and they've been told to think big. The ask is to have those courts built with a retractable roof so they can be used year around but be open for at least half the year. Cost may prohibit that, but that's the ask.
When the idea of where MacEwan's main campus should be built back in the 80s, one idea being pushed by a few council members was it should be built by the Clareview LRT when lots of land was there. The thought was it would create lrt traffic in both directions rather than all going Downtown. Fair point but glad it's downtown.
