    Calgary ‘Black Lives Matter‘ Equality Protests

    Surprised we don’t have a thread for this yet. These already have been some of the largest protests in our city’s history. This is being described by some U of C and MRU analysts as a pivotal moment in Calgary history, and indeed Canadian history. I wasn’t able to make it to the main march...

    Calgary | General Block | 6.71m | 2s | RNDSQR | FAAS Architecture

    A small but spicy addition to Bridgeland that hasn't received nearly enough attention. Definitely deserves its own thread. All three CRUs have been leased, all to local shops (Una, Phil & Sebastians, Village Ice Cream), but no word yet on the 2nd floor office space. Both the ARP amendment and...

    Edison | 34m | ?s | Hungerford Properties

    Another transformative project for Inglewood. At 34 metres, it will mesh quite well with the RNDSQR proposal (12 storeys I believe) a block east. Being a neighbourhood gateway project, I'm very excited to learn more about it. 138 units - 34 meters - 10 (ish) floors...

    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...

    Calgary | Royal Park | 26m | 8s | Arlington Street

    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.

    Underpass Revitalizations

    Figured we should have a thread for this. Fourth Street SW underpass is going to be pretty amazing. Motivational messages, travelling light... very cool stuff. Full schematics can be found here

    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!

    Calgary | Crystal | ?m | 8s | West Campus Trust | Urban-Agency

    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. The revitalization is sounding really dang cool, they are going to include exhibits about the indigenous peoples...

    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...

    Calgary | Uptown at Westbrook | ?m | 12s | Matco Group | Zeidler

    A little surprised I couldn't find an article on here about this, but the Westbrook Station development now has a name and some shiny new renders :) 60,000 ft2 of retail and 407,000 ft2 of residential in 500 units.

    Calgary | August at University District | ?m | 6s | Avi Urban

    First detailed renders of August are now out. Sales launched this weekend. Looks really good as far as mid-rises in Calgary go. Primary cladding looks to be brick. Thumbs up from me. Additional renders can be found here...
