    Calgary | ALT Hotel University District | 49m | 15s | Groupe Germain

    Excellent to see this going again.

    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    That's an impressive number of units coming on line. The core is alive and well.

    Covid-19

    Here are my thoughts on vaccine passports. The logical side of me wonders if there is much point to them. I was at a packed and busy Superstore, with no passport required. It was the same at Chinook Centre. Jam packed, and no passport needed. I went to 10 foot Henry and showed my passport, but...

    Calgary | Plaza 54 | 187m | 54s | Killam REIT | Gibbs Gage

    Was this one ever confirmed as dead?

    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    I think it's this project https://calgary.skyrisecities.com/forum/threads/urban-development-and-proposals-discussion.27153/page-344#post-1760613

    Calgary | Calgary Event Centre | 36.85m | 11s | CSEC | HOK

    Considering how much funding they were getting from the city, for them to throw a hissy fit at this stage is very annoying and is a bad look for people running multi-million dollar companies. Do you want to get my little sister to run this thing? Because she'll be more mature about it. Like fuck...

    Calgary | TELUS Sky | 222.19m | 60s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    It would be great if they repaired the burnet leds, but tbh I hardly ever notice them. I've had various out of town visitors in awe of the building and the light display and nobody has noticed the burnt ones.

    The Hat Elbow River | 178m | 56s | Cidex Group | NORR

    I'm going to go against the grain and say, build it as planned. IMO, this is one of those locations where you might as well pound in the density. The parcel is good for little else, given the way it is cut off from everything by the river and the Macleods. It's only 300m away from the Victoria...

    Calgary | Connaught Mixed Use | 114m | 37s | Cressey | Chris Dikeakos

    This would also be my pick if it was up to me. This would be the order I'd go with.. 1 - Connaught Gardens 2 - Fishmans 3 - First and Park 4 - 4th street Lofts 5 - 526 - 4th ave.

    Calgary | 1334 - 10th Ave SW | 25m | 6s | Renoir

    I would guess it was the change of being able to go up to 6 floors with wood.

    Calgary | Infill Development Discussion

    The north hill has a fairly large area made up of grid streets. It's the perfect place for increased density.

    Office Space Conversion

    I like some of the ideas that were mentioned in the article. Don't know if they're feasible or not - vertical greenhouses for example - but it's nice to see ideas outside of the box. Affordable housing is something that might work also. It mentioned Sait taking over some space. Gotta keep these...

    Calgary | NUDE | 63m | 18s | Battistella | S2 Architecture

    Definitely going ahead.

    Calgary Civic Election 2021

    Exactly it. Polls don't really mean a whole lot, but they give a general idea of what's going on. Looking at recent polls you can reliably rule out Brad Field and Jan Damery, and probably even Davison, as they are all at l;east consistent on who the front runners are. Other than that it's a...

    Alberta Provincial Politics

    Either way, the next election can't come soon enough. We could end up with some in charge who is more extreme than Kenny (an Angela Pitt, Peter Guthrie type lunatic), but there may be a positive side to that. The party could alienate urban voters even further, than it has and they could find...

    Just remember to get dressed afterwards ;)

    Calgary | Shawnessy Station | ?m | 6s | Telsec

    I would agree that it's better to wait if it's a more strategic location, like Westbrook, Brentwood, Chinook for example. This location I don't care about as much, and I agree with Alexyyc that possibility for a good TOD was ruined when they built the Superstore and designed the surrounding...
