    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    This one is just like the Winsport lodge. Yes, the building is old and needs mechanical upgrades. Does it need $65M in mechanical upgrades? No. Would a complete renovation save some energy costs? Yes, if you look with a magnifying glass. Does it make a material difference? No. It's just a...

    Wow only $65 million to save $27,000 per year in energy bills?

    Nakiska is a going concern, although you could argue that Fortress would be doing something similar if Nakiska were never built

    The lodge badly needed a reclad and surely some mechanical upgrades. It's busy on weekends but not oppressively busy. Unlike Sunshine, most people skiing at Winsport are just there for a few hours and don't really need to use the day lodge. More people will go into the lodge for a burger and...

    Place 800 | 68m | 17s | Peoplefirst

    Eau Claire Place II is currently undergoing residential conversion and has a +15 connection. But it's at the "end of the line" rather than the middle of the network.

    I don’t think the lot has been sold, it’s the same Quantum Place application on behalf of Terrigno. Most likely nothing comes of it after the upzoning.

    Calgary Flames Official Thread

    Apparently just after the Oilers knocked out Gretzky and the Kings in 1992

    I would rate @ByeByeBaby's proposed spur to Torrington's World Famous Gopher Hole Museum just ahead of this one.

    Commuter rail in the style of GO train, i.e. a few trains at rush hour from bedroom communities to downtown, is designed for commuting patterns that are far less common than in the past. In a world of hybrid work, it's probably going to have 1/3 the ridership that it would have 10 years ago...

    Wow kind of shocked that this buy-back option existed but was never disclosed or debated. I wonder how long ago the City was first able to exercise it - I wouldn't be surprised if they could have done this a few years ago and just kept getting strung along by Matco. I'm all for selling a few...

    DP process per my understanding: submitted - where it starts in circulation - changes to this once the file manager has distributed it to reviewers under review - typically the longest stage, between distribution and when a CPC meeting has been scheduled planning commission - for large...

    Kitty corner to the train station? Not sure I'm putting them up for a marketing award

    That seems extremely smart to me - a lightweight automated people mover with short headways that can go up/over/under things like the runway, Deerfoot and the Bow. Not cheap, but cheaper than heavy rail from downtown to the terminal once you find out that CP won't give away their ROW.

    A better outcome than a parking lot for 20 years while a land speculator hopes to flip the lot for a high rise condo tower.

    If I had to be charitable to Liricon, maybe their strategy is to paint Parks as bad and unreasonable, and then hope that a Conservative government agrees, and changes the Parks leadership. It's not a crazy plan. But you'd think they would have gotten UPC ministers and CPC critics out making this...

    Kensington Project 201 | 50m | 14s | Quantum Place

    I listened to the debate - the planner from the city sounded like she was being held hostage, comments like "this was not easy," concerns about impacts on the neighboring residential. But approved 9-0. On to council, and presumably a certain amount of public hearing circus theatre.

    Kensington Project 201 | 50m | 14s | Quantum Place

    City administration is trying to kill off the ARPs as fast as they can, replacing them with Local Area Plans that are wider scale, less detailed, and more permissive of change and densification.
