    Daily Photo Dose

    I feel like I have been overwhelming the General Photos thread and I feel bad, so figured I'd create this thread for my best daily photos of that given day. As I plan to be doing a lot of adventures this summer, I think this is for the best. Here's one from this evening. Was having a picnic on...

    Regional Photography

    Figured we should have a thread for photos taken throughout our beautiful region but not within the city. Banff, Canmore, Cochrane, Drumheller, wherever you end up :)

    Weather and Gardening Discussion

    Figured we could use a place to discuss the weather and gardening on here as I post a lot about my gardens in the "urban farming thread" and other more weather-related photos of the city in the general photos thread. So this will be a good place... From today at the U of C... And I...

    Calgary's BRT network

    Figured we should have a thread for development of Calgary's BRT network, since we just saw three lines come online simultaneously last year and one line still under construction. I'm quite proud of how quickly the city seems to be getting their sh*t together in regard to transit. I took a...

    Royal Park | ?m | 8s | ASI | ?

    Arlington Street Investments' new hotel proposal on 17 Avenue has some new renders, so I figured I'd create a thread for it. The hotel will have 110 guest rooms, 2 floors of retail, and a rooftop patio on the 2nd floor.

    Central Business District

    Thought we could use a thread for the CBD since there is a lot going on there. Was at the CORE for lunch today and noticed a little surprise that caught me off guard :) The Devonian Gardens are now fully open again!

    This would be a fairly remarkable proposal anywhere in the city, let alone in the suburbs.

    Fort Calgary Revitalization | ?m | 2s | Fort Calgary | PublicDesign

    The Fort Calgary museum expansion is nearing its funding target and should be under construction within the next year or two hopefully. So I thought we should start a thread for it.

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

    A thread for the beautiful Beacon project at 3110 17 Avenue SW in Killarney/Westbrook. This along with West 17 will do a lot to jumpstart the urban intensification of that area in line with the ARP. The project will include four street-level CRUs and the second floor will be office space, along...

    MacKimmie Complex and Professional Faculties Building Redevelopment | 59m | 15s | U of C | DIALOG

    Considering the substantial amount of structural work going on here, I feel like this project deserves a dedicated thread. The tower crane has now been installed, and the removal of the exterior and interior of the building down to the superstructural steel will now commence. The building is...

    Stephen Avenue

    Considering we have a thread for all the other hip and trendy areas in the city undergoing massive change, I figured we should have one for Stephen Avenue. The changes ongoing on Stephen Avenue may not be structurally based as they are in the other areas, but they are still quite noticeable...
