    Calgary | Stephen Avenue Place Revitalization | ?m | 40s | Slate

    That would be so cool. Maybe someday.
  2. Just build it


    It's been a while since we've discussed Covid. The 2nd wave (or third in some cases) is happening. Any predictions and how it goes for Calgary, Alberta and Canada. or other parts of the world?

    Totally agree.

    Fixing Calgary's Business District

    Not a write off, but close. It's a difficult task to turn it around because of the impact of past mistakes, but not impossible. If the city gets serious and creative, there is hope, and maybe someday Calgary will be used as a model on how to reinvent a CBD. Calgary's biggest issue is the amount...

    Fixing Calgary's Business District

    I don’t want to sound negative but I almost feel like the CBD is a write off. Even if the towers fill back up it’s still mostly an office park on steroids. Years of soul sucking office building street frontages have almost ruined it for good. The only hope IMO is to get more residents in the...

    I used to go to that 5 Guys about once a month. It wasn’t the cheapest place, but it was good. It was a downer when they closed.

    Urban Development and Proposals Discussion

    But that would be thinking outside the box. Something Calgarians often struggle with.

    Calgary | Sola | 26m | 8s | Ocgrow | Riddell Kurczaba

    Love the location. I’d like to see more renderings if there any around.

    Calgary | Annex | 30m | 9s | Minto Group | Nyhoff Architecture

    The unit in the photo above is probably not much larger than 200 sq ft maybe 350 sq ft as it looks to have a room off to the left also, but with those large windows the unit will feel roomy for its size.

    Calgary | Courtyard 33 | 21.64m | 6s | RNDSQR | 5468796 Architecture

    I must be missing something. I don't see any cladding yet.

    What brought you to this site?

    I thought everyone here was from SSP, but it seems quite a few (about half) are from other sources.

    What brought you to this site?

    I'm curious how people came to to this site. Many of us are from SSP originally, but maybe some of the other newer members found this site some other way. For me I was along time SSP member.

    Place 10 | 121m | 35s | Centron | Gibbs Gage

    This is what we're referring to. lol. Many of us here used to frequent that site back in the day. Also, welcome!

    It's turning out .....exactly as expected.

    The Dells | 48m | 15S | Remington | Systemic Architecture

    I'm not an expert, but I would say it is. The type of drill in the pic (caisson driller) is different than the types used for testing.

    Calgary | Unbuilt Projects

    Looks to be a concept drawing, but would have looked great if built. Even at a third of the height, still would have looked great.

    120 - 17th Ave NW | 20m | 6s | | O2.

    Couldn't agree more. I wish we had another 100 of these types. Not exciting, but simple and effective.

    Sunalta Heights | 88m | 27s | Housing One | S2 Architecture

    Glad to see this moving forward. The proximity to the LRT station is a plus, and it'll be nice to see some density making its way west of 14th street.

    Calgary | Esquire | 13.41m | 4s | Truman Development | S2 Architecture

    I'm happy that Esquire will help fill out University District, but I really hope the next project Truman goes on is either Archer or West 17.
