    RNDSQR Block | 45m | 12s | RNDSQR | 5468796 Architecture

    Even though I generally like this project, I agree with many of your points. Inner city density is great, but density levels almost needs to be done on a parcel by parcel basis. This project would be much better at 8 floors IMO, while most others along 9th are better suited at 5-6 floors. This...

    Office Space Conversion

    I doubt anyone thought office space conversions would solve the office space vacancy situation, but there's an article on it.

    Building up Victoria Park is kind of like colonizing Mars lol.

    Calgary | The Grid | 50m | 16s | NORR

    I'm sure it would be fine, but the tower would be directly on the flight path. The truck stop location is 3,400ft elevation, and the Calgary Herald location (which is also on the flight path is 3520ft, plus another 50 or so feet for the building. In theory you should be able to add something...

    RNDSQR Block | 45m | 12s | RNDSQR | 5468796 Architecture

    I think this building would still be very cool and noticeable at 9 floors, but given the location it probably should be 12.

    Calgary | Park Central | 110m | 35s | Hines | S.C.B.

    One thing I like about this tower is panels look light gray sometimes and almost black other times.

    Same thoughts here. The tower is solid, even quite nice, but the podium does't make much sense to me at all.

    Era | 41m | 13s | Minto Group

    I was looking at that also. It seems the latest rendering doesn't match the site plan. Some of the other renderings show the building closer to 4th street. I think it'll be okay.

    Calgary | Block 23 - Central Park | ?m | ?s | Gibbs Gage

    If I'm not mistaken, that's the new Argyle proposal in the background. I like how they place a highrise building in behind, even though it's a low rise district.

    Steps Bridgeland | 18m | 6s | Centurion | Sturgess

    Would be nice to see a small urban format grocer on the north side of 1st ave. I think Bridgeland is close. Marda Loop has a Safeway and a Blush Lane. Britannia has a Sunterra and Blush Lane. With Steps/Dominion/McPherson II and Columbus Court all being built. It might be enough for an urban...

    Steps Bridgeland | 18m | 6s | Centurion | Sturgess

    The crane going back in means they are going again. Whether it finishes all the way through, who knows, but given it's rental this time, it seems more likely it'll finish.

    It can be right away if they dig out the soil and take it somewhere to be treated. If it sits on its own, it's 25 years.

    Pinnacle tower on Macleod is 28 floors.

    General Construction Updates

    One Tower has turned out pretty solid. We have a lot of dark colored towers though, hopefully the next tower in the area will be light colored materials.
