Hi Again,

Hey Urban Warrior, I DON'T Fault You for your remarks at All. Its When I read that places Like Edmonton have Plans to Build 75 and 80 Flr Bldgs and We DON'T, then I feel Something isn't quite right - Rightfully So. I Read a Lot on Urban Toronto so My Experience of close to 40 Yrs in Calgary - My Home I take the Outlook that We Can Do Better - A LOT Better then We are Doing Really. I Look at MORE then Just DT so, its the outline areas as well as I Saw a Lot Happening When I Worked in Courier Land,. NO Bad Feelings but Yes I am a bit BIASED in Favour of DT/Beltine/Mission as that was my Main Work Areas - so I Have Positive Feelings and Perhaps Rightfully so. No Bad Feelings. I want very much to see Calgary do Better and I believe it Can. DT/Beltline/Mission has a Lot of Growth and Redevelopement Opp0rtunities. I hope to B Part of It in My own Special Ways as I lived and Worked in the Areas, No Regrets.

Thanks,
Operater,
 
Edmonton is going the wrong direction with things. It needs lots and lots of intensification and not vanity projects. Everyone is now jumping on the Katz bandwagon proposing 40, 50, 80 storeys. The market just isn't large enough. All these proposals are just wasting time. Katz got some great handouts too.
 
All the supertalls and starchitecture in the world will never make me prefer this to this.

Nothing against height - in fact, Calgary could use much, much more height - but we should focus on improving density and walkability rather than trying to make a statement with big development projects.
 
Yep. As far as recent projects in Calgary go, we don't need to give Edmonton or Winnipeg a run for their money. Been there done that.
Calgary needs to go after bigger game like Toronto and Vancouver. Some of the development in East Village is getting there, projects like Telus Sky and the library are in that zone.

Yeah, I mean, Brookfield Place, NMC, NCL, 707, Telus Sky, Evolution, and in my opinion, Mark on Tenth and Sixth and Tenth, are all on par with what's being built in Toronto and Vancouver, and in some cases exceed what's going on in those cities. For a time, I believe in 2014, we were even building more than Montreal and Vancouver (not counting Van's suburbs), which is insane for a city our size to be doing over 40 high-rise projects at one time. Calgary is transforming right before our eyes.
