    Yep. My guess is they weren't counting on the 8th St rail crossing being closed there.

    Is anyone else thinking the "2009" in the document title means this is an old concept we've just unearthed?

    Calgary | Courtyard 33 | 21.64m | 6s | RNDSQR | 5468796 Architecture

    It's cost-driven by code requirements for structures with more than 4 wood stories, or so it's been explained to me. There's enough additional fire-proofing requirements that it's cheaper to just put in a concrete 2nd floor.

    I hope this community turns out as good as Westman Village.

    Calgary | UPTEN | 121.91m | 37s | Strategic Group

    Before Freshii closed up, Mark on 10th had completely leased the ground floor retail.

    Calgary | The Hub | ?m | 28s | Campus Suites | ARK Inc.

    The folks who made the virtual tour are clearly from BC, Ontario or Quebec. They call power "hydro" in the costs section.

    Isn't this the rental project?

    Calgary | Harrison | 20m | 5s | Sarina Homes

    I wish they did this instead of the 4-plexes they built on Kensington Blvd!

    Does Sarina own all of 33rd or something?

    General Construction Updates

    Looks to be beside Evergreen, with Stoney in between. I can't imagine how an urban/mixed-use development there would thrive unless it's car-oriented unfortunately. No mass transit planned to that area for sure.

    I wish they incorporated the existing external structure of those buildings, or built around them.

    Calgary | Calgary Cancer Centre | ?m | ?s | Province of Alberta | Stantec

    That's starting to look a bit sterile.

    Calgary | Irvine | 23.47m | 6s | Torode | NORR

    This is what used to be in the location. While I don't like what we got, it's sure a big improvement:

    Green line is too far away to have any real affect on Bridgeland in my opinion.

    The only things I would like to see there: 1) Fill in the gaps between the homes with thin townhomes. 2) Bury the overhead power lines.
