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

    That fix only makes sense if they actually intend on building the third tower relatively soon. It's a good sign I think.

    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    I really wish people outside of the design profession (and armchair fans) would start to see the value that great design brings. A good Arena & Public Realm design nets the owners significantly more money in the medium to long term than a cheap building would save them. Hire smart, educated...

    Calgary | 4th Street Lofts | 115m | 29s | Western Securities | Gibbs Gage

    I'm fine with wallumns, there's just a bunch of small columns directly adjacent to each other. I'll give them credit that at least they're in the partitions, but I feel like a more optimal spacing could have saved some material/money/carbon. There's probably a reason for the way it is (i.e...

    Floor-to-floor is 3m, so about 9ft - assuming 250mm slab (generous), mech&elec in slab, and exposed concrete ceilings (soft loft). I'm not a fan of the column layout, but there's probably a reason for the way it is. I despise barn doors on bedrooms.

    I agree with hcf, well done. I'm interested to see the unit layouts and pricing of the "lofts." Edit: We have this of the typ. floors:

    Calgary | The Bridge | 52.42m | 16s | Jemm Properties | Zeidler

    One of the amenities being a "Podcast Room" is hilarious.

    But isn't that for only 3 weeks following approval?

    Calgary | Infill Development Discussion

    It's definitely out of scale for the context, the question is whether or not that's a good thing. I'd love to see some stretches of urban SFH turn into more of the New York (or even Montreal) rowhouse style, but it has to start somewhere. So if not directly adjacent to Kensington, where? The...

    Calgary | Park Point | 106.98m | 34s | Qualex-Landmark | IBI Group

    There was a building there 2 weeks ago, I'd say they're doing pretty good.

    Reminder that it doesn't need to necessarily be a convention space, "conference" could just be the most appropriate Use Area for whatever the actual use is (i.e. it will need similar egress, structural, and mechanical and electrical servicing as a conference space).

    Talked to someone on the project team, apparently cost/capital is not a barrier to getting this built.

    I don't know if anyone has posted this or not, but Wexford is selling their development site directly across from the new Victoria Park Station.

    General Construction Updates

    I've worked on some bridges, I really like this. This bridge specifically didn't need to be anything outlandish, it connects a large and beautiful park to downtown, and is right next to a Calatrava. It's slender, swooping, meets the needs, and focuses attention elsewhere. I'm looking forward...

    Especially if they're currently separated between different floors & buildings, and just secured a billion dollar valuation with series C funding.
