Land uses and institution sprawl continue to be two of the biggest issues outside transit's direct control - if the South Hospital was built on the existing Red Line rather than as part of a suburban sprawl play in the SE we'd likely never see the Greenline's south extension being prioritized (and thus taking investment away from other projects). We'd also have the past decade of a few thousands more daily riders without a single new kilometre of track. That's a few thousand more voters too advocating for a better system too. There doesn't seem to be much/any voice from transit or advocacy groups to challenge land uses that are not compatible.
It's frustrating for sure. The bulk of Calgary taxpayers live in the burbs, and will vote in councilors who aid that lifestyle. I guess it is what it is, but building the LRT lines so far out has turned it into more of a commuter train system than a general transit system. It's been designed to match Calgary's make-up as a city.

I'm curious to see which direction transit in general goes. With less people working downtown (and it possibly becoming a trend), and more people living downtown, the city's makeup is changing. I'm hoping we can get the Green Line built, and going forward make better use of leveraging the system. While TODs as a planned entity are struggling, development around the LRT stations has been decent, and hopefully it can gain more traction.

All the oversized lots owned by the same person on the North Side of Mission Road are finally up for sale... again. Would be nice to see it finally developed.

They are using Bode to sell. And while I have zero issues with Bode, I guess I just would of thought as sale of that many lots and size you would be using some large commercial real estate firm that I assumed brings more value then the typical residential Realtors .... but I don't know.

I am bias as heck living in the area, but I would of thought there would be desire from developers to develop there given the population density, nearby train station and location.
What addresses and is it actively marketed, I’ll give it a look from the developer angle and see if I can make it work

I didn't realize you worked for a developer!

Anyway, see the links below. I think the same owner has held on to all the properties for about a decade. Not sure why there are separate listing for adjacent properties

So little confused and I hope I don't offend with this....

I know developers can't know all sites for sale in a City. I just would have thought that a set of inner city, oversized, ~10 lots all adjacent to each other, with direct control zoning would of been on the radar of developers, and am surprised me posting here would of made any difference to the visibility of the lots?

I mean, I love Parkhill so bias as heck as I said, but the location has to be half decent even when accounting for my bias (and I assume semi rare to get this much inner city combined land area).

For the record, as I have become a cheerleader for the lots - I don't have any financial stake in the lots (or know the owner at all) other than I live close and I think them developed helps my land value and enjoyment of the area! We have already seen an awesome change in the last 4 years with the Barley belt setting up on the otherside of MacLeod, and even CO-OP's apartments being built is better than the dealership that was there.

Depends on your role in the company really, I am primarily focused on development execution and do acquisitions work only part of the time when people send me things. Usually it comes from a CRE broker, junior analyst in the company or a connection outside of the company. Also we're usually just plain busy, i need to work out feasibility studies on four other pieces of land before i have any time to look at these Parkhill sites, often we pass up sites because we just don't have the time to look at it as we have so many other projects on the go.

And i also would like to see these lots developed as i also live nearby.

Just putting a couple of interesting proposals for Seton here. Looks like Brookfield is planning a decent hub around the intersection of Market Street and Main Street SE.
Here are the two DP links:

The first is a Market Hall commercial building. But it's DP package also shows the overall land use plan for the intersection:

Renderings for the market hall, which is the NE corner of the intersection:

And then the mixed use building in the NW corner of the intersection. This one appears to have a unique parkade, with open deck parkign on the 2nd level, leading right to the back door of the townhomes that are stacked on top of retail:
