    Boo, the plane was the best part.

    Agreed, this looks so much nicer than the rendering. Red is my favourite color...I love it for cars, sports teams, bikes, random gear etc. But I think it looks terrible as a color for most architectural uses (it's the one thing, besides the terrible build quality, I hate about the Peace bridge).

    Oh man, that little store was perfect. I wish we had one of those in our neighborhood.

    Back to panic mode!

    Good to hear. Carry on then!

    Hopefully it's nothing overbearing that places the height directly against 17th itself (or 4th to a lesser extent). Having mostly smaller, human-scaled buildings, is what makes streets like 17th work. Leave the tall stuff for the back (not unlike the McKinley Burkart version).

    Great project, but I'm kinda let down by the lighting. With the overall tech-forward look of the place, I was expecting the lighting to be a little more funky or something.

    Old-ass me still calls places Lindsay Park, Petro-Canada Centre, and ACAD. So despite being a new building, I'll probably just call the new place the Dome too. Screw Rogers or Scotiabank, you're not the boss of me!

    Yeah, the gaps in the facade tiles really kill the flow. I'm still hoping that they add some white grout or something at the end to minimize the grid pattern. I was never particularly enamoured by this design, but in the end it's the inside that will make or break it.

    All that money, yet a complete lack of imagination in color scheme. Honestly, I'm sure they are awesome for their owners, but as unobtanium to us mere mortals, I've never been able to get excited about the Chiron. The Veyron was a complete game changer at the time, but this one...meh? That new...

    Fort Calgary seems like it would've been a much more ideal spot to me. It already acts as a festival spot at times, plus its close enough to Stampede to be part of the activities during that week.

    It's going to be one of those buildings that look great as long as you don't look too close or for too long. It's like the sun or cleavage... you don't stare at it, you get a sense of it and look away.

    Good to know. I haven't been to a game since maybe the late 90s/early 2000s.

    It would be nice if they could find a way to bring it over to McMahon. Perhaps it can be suspended like that giant speaker they have there now.

    I honestly just prefer the Before.

    I didn't really notice it before, but it's nice how they staggered the balconies, increasing the amount of people who have views towards downtown and the river.

    Well I guess the good news is that there's not much to walk to. The place is pretty much an island.

    It's been almost two decades now, but another Arriva would still look better than most condos that are being built today.

    Looks like the position has opened up. 😢
