    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    Passed through Inglewood today, the place was buzzing even though it’s a weekday. I suspect half the people in the city took today off, as all the patios were full. Just wanted to comment on a couple of things. Every time I go by this lawn bowling lot in the summer it is always full of young...

    Calgary Restaurant Thread

    Good news on Two House brewery in Sunalta. I talked to one of the managers there today as I was passing by and he says they are hoping to be open in Stampede week 👍

    Calgary | BMO Centre Expansion | 25m | 5s | CMLC

    Not the best pic but it’s interesting to see how visible it is from the East Village Elbow River area.

    General Construction Updates

    Some pics of the new Inglewood bridge and the bike paths around it. So nice that you can take the path along the Elbow River again. It was a long wait for the new bridge but from at pedestrian and cyclist point of view it is a dream compared to the old bridge.

    General Construction Updates

    To help with the sudden tornadoes and hail storms we usually get during Stampede

    Calgary | Bridgeland Riverside Continuing Care Centre | 19m | 5s | Province of Alberta | FWBA

    Maybe some supply issues? I can't imagine it being halted altogether at this point, especially being funded by the province.

    Calgary | WestUrban 37th | 16.5m | 5s | WestUrban | FAAS Architecture

    It's not pretty by any stretch, and definitely not the kind of work we usually see from FAAS. I guess we'll take the density that comes with it as partial victory.

    The pics turned out great 👍

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

    I doubt Axiom would be there to pave a parking lot, this is good.

    Calgary Bike Lanes and Bike Paths

    The first time I rode it, I wasn't crazy for it, but now I like it. I'd still prefer the lane be at road level and separated, but the 24th ave style setup works well.

    I was actually planning to go down there today, but the weather turned kinda so-so. Definitely going to try it though.

    Calgary | Arris - 5th and Third | 142m | 41s | Embassy Bosa | Amanat Architect

    It's not the worst idea I've heard. They would be part of a much more vibrant landscape. I would put them in the centre of Tompkins, and have some nice patio lights (like the ones at Bridgeland) around the area....or some nice uplighting so you could see the statues at night.
