    General Construction Updates

    This is a reno of an existing building, big improvement. https://www.google.ca/maps/@51.0454402,-114.0924893,3a,90y,177.82h,88.14t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sn_-8LHKblXWR3_OKmAC94A!2e0!5s20140801T000000!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

    Calgary | Eau Claire Market Redevelopment | 135m | 35s | Harvard Developments | Perkins + Will

    Would be an amazing opportunity to tie a train station into the development.

    It still drives me nuts that CPR wants the 8St crossing closed there. Once that and this project are done, the connectivity between Ramsay and Inglewood will be limited to 12st, probably one of the worst connections for pedestrians in the inner city.

    Why do we want an LRT connection to the airport? because it's a great idea and will provide easier access to the city for people arriving at YYC. I took the skytrain downtown from YVR and it was fantastic! much cheaper and faster than a taxi or Uber. I don't see how this line will impact the...

    Rumour has it they are having issues securing a shoring permit, probably have to post securities for the portion on either the city or the neighbours property.

    So they are going to replace that bridge with a cable stay bridge?

    My concern is if this isn't started under the current council, then the next one will nickel and dime it and we will have another half assed system that runs at grade. Or even worse, it gets shelved for another 20 years in the name of saving tax dollars.

    Evan Woolley is now also pushing for a pause on the Green Line, I'm nervous for the future of this project now. https://www.facebook.com/notes/evan-woolley/getting-the-green-line-right/1282864208559650/

    There's no way they will block the river pathway with all the work they have just done, there's got to be a better way.

    1st St Chinatown Tower Development | ?m | 28s | El Condor Lands | Perkins + Will

    I guess it's a good thing that most of the development we are going to see in the core over the next 10-20 years are going to have a focus on residential...

    Calgary | Green Line LRT | ?m | ?s | Calgary Transit

    Sounds like an issue with bad soil there or something, definitely not a unique problem here. As long as it's a new bridge (and not centre street) and there are no at grade crossings, it's fine, having the train elevated on it's way into downtown from the north might make for some spectacular...

    You could say that about half the streets downtown. It's quite clear which transportation mode has had the priority in this city... 5th is one that I've always been amazed about how narrow the sidewalks are...

    Calgary | Underwood Tower | 99m | 31s | Western Securities | Zeidler BKDI

    That's the garbage enclosure, have to have it accessible for pickup and there's no alley to hide it in. I'd rather see that black wall than a bunch of dumpsters...
