    I would prefer that situation as well, but I know there are people that would prefer this area around Chinook. The Beltline/downtown still has some stigma of crime and homeless issues to the average person. Rightful or not, those concerns exist for many. Chinook with the huge mall and piles of...

    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    It depends on your situation. Personally I would prefer Westbrook or Currie, but I can see why this would appeal to some. If you’re a couple where one person works downtown and one person works in a suburban location this works very well. Also the shopping and retail options are better than...

    What brought you to this site?

    Originally from SSP. Like the others came here because SSP was turning to shit. Truth be told, SSP was at one time the same as this site.

    Calgary | Beacon | ?m | 2s | RNDSQR | 5468796 Architecture

    Calgary | 19+2 | ?m | 5s | FAAS Architecture
