    General Construction Updates

    Cool! That used to be Sunset Billiards :D What's happening to this property again? Is there a link to a new development somewhere?

    Love this, especially the retail street level activation on that side of 33rd! It's too bad that other new-ish/forgettable rental building will be wedged between these two complexes.

    Some other fun stuff for discussion; the new Vecova Centre proposed for the current location of the VRRI. I'm assuming this is conditional on Vecova getting funding (whenever that is, although I'm sure projects like these are of interest to governments)...

    Ah, FCCP2. I worked on that wayyyyy back in the day. Was supposed to resemble wheat or a grain or something. Now I see it a bit with the other towers for sure. 😁

    So far so good, awaiting to see what the cladding will look like. Really hoping they open up that southbound turning lane again soon....

    By the way, has this one been discussed yet? Renderings just went up on site on the corner of Spruce Drive SW and Bow Trail. Closer to Home Community Services https://www.closertohomeproject.com/project-background

    This one has turned out to be quite fun to watch go up. It's just... tall as all hell in that area of town. Not quite sure what to think of that white cladding yet though; will reserve further opinion until its completion.

    Really underwhelming for a location of that importance. Yuck.

    I love this design. Clean lines, very simple, very elegant. Very European too.

    Calgary | BMO Centre Expansion | ?m | ?s | CMLC

    On a related note, the station is going to be really nice and modern, and will fit with the design of the new convention centre. No more flyovers or elevated connections. I've seen the plans.

    Regarding the Glenbow, the other team that was far, far into the running was from Los Angeles, and they do some really cool stuff. Can't say more than that, but would have been such a better choice than Dialog (their design is very underwhelming). It came down to the wire, too. Dialog was the...

    Me too, I would sign in a heartbeat. This is game changing project for Inglewood, and would add to the character of the street and the Inglewood experience. NIMBYers are just afraid of change, always have been. There needs to be public support shown for this project.

    You'll want to keep an eye on the 17th Avenue LRT Station as well, its redevelopment is going to be interesting alongside the convention centre.

    Calgary | West Village Towers | 150m | 41s | Cidex Group | NORR Dubai Yahya Jan

    I like the form of the towers, very distinct; the podium though, blech. My guess is the client value engineered the shit out of this thing. The least they could have done with that hideous, monolithic podium is wrap it some type of glass curtain wall (like West Block in Edmonton). Hell, I even...

    Well since that cat is out of the bag, yes, that's the design team. Not who I would have wanted, either, but oh well. The rumoured teams of Rossetti / Populous, or BIG / AECOM would have been more my preference.
