In this case, I’ll take it with the surface parking even though I hate it. The foundations are already in, none of which included significant (or any at all?) underground parking. This also ensures a ton of units that can be built quickly, near services. Boom. Huge win.

No there's quite a bit of underground parking, nearly 1000 stalls according to the presenters. But this is still a better outcome because the original Quarry Crossing plan would have meant the entire site would be surface parking + an above ground parkade
 
Yeah, there is a massive underground parkade there. I bet the site design is largely driven by the existing structural design of the parkade.
You nailed it, that's what they said during the presentation. The entire development is built to make use of it for the economics of the site, including the 13 story towers that will build a connected underground walkway to utilize it.

Oh shit haha. *inserts foot in mouth*

Well there you go. I agree!
 
Most of it is already even landscaped, has been for years.

This is on top of a fourth 13 story tower at Deville by the Coop in Quarry park, more 13 story towers north of Les Jardins and some mid/low rise product there as well. The city also has some TOD rezoning further north on 24st by the traffic circle, and there's a project further south off 114 by another developer across the street from the bus / future green line station as well. Remington is also holding onto those parcels by the river for some low rise multifamily as well. Ecco has also stated plans for future TOD with their landfill removal that's undergoing zoning approvals now as well.

So overall there's quite a bit of residential on the books for this area, easily 3000-4000 more units.
Bridgeland skyline has competition!
 
some notes from the open house:
- Intent is to reuse the built 3-storey parkades and elevator/stairwell cores for the development
- Approx. 1100 units, "vast majority rental"
- Landscaped site edges to remain and improved
- Above-ground parkade structure on the north end of the site is no longer going forward, will be developed as residential building
- Single DC land use divided into 3 sub-areas:
A: 2 storeys/10m
B: 4 storeys/18m
C: 8 storeys/29m, in addition to a maximum of two point towers up to 13 storeys/42m
- Point towers required to fully utilize the existing parkade structure of almost 1k stalls. 8 storey buildings are the maximum height able to be supported by the parkade.
- Intent to submit DP for the three 8 storey buildings above the parkade before land use approval

The land use for this has been applied for, think we should create a thread for it?
