    That is totally fair, I have never been in the building it is an operational theatre?

    Couldn't agree more. My old apartment used to look over that site and I literally felt like I spent my time trying to create a site plan for it that could adaptively re-use some of the buildings. It is an incredibly prime, riverfront site in Mission that is so underutilized it is astounding...

    Live down the street from this, mission is putting up plenty of lowrise projects the neighbourhood is still maturing nicely in the downturn, good to see.

    Fixing Calgary's Business District

    Late to the party on this thread, but my first thing is how is the Lougheed Building which is a dream of a loft conversion not changing it up when it’s 100% vacant. I mean look at it...

    That’s pretty accurate and profit margin on cost is below the 15% you’d want to see a proforma to say go on for a lot of little R-CG projects. People are making a go of it though, feel time on the market is a killer for some though.

    My assumption is that it is likely that a lot of applications are coming in for secondary suites because many homeowners have lost there primary source of income (job) or have a reduced household income and are looking for a way to supplement that income with a rental suite to keep up with...

    Exactly, Calgary has always had a proportionately low amount of purpose-built rentals in comparison to other Canadian cities. It was super evident in the last boom years when Calgary had virtually no rental stock available and secondary suites became the big issue because something like ~70% of...

    Nothing like having a contextual setback for R-C2 and R-CG to relate to existing bungalows, when the final condition of the street is nothing like it and none of the bungalows are left. So you can build towns or semi-detached in the inner-city with a typical front setback of 7-9m, or 1m in R-G...

    Punched windows in the rendering were black frame and they opted for the base/cheap white. Already off to a VE'ed start

    I can see how this can be exciting, but from a land strategy perspective this is way too much height and density for where it is. I get the client wants to be able to maximize the value of the land, but the city gives people so much density everywhere and so rarely does this get built. Genuinely...

    Thought that the transparency might not be as rendered at grade, glad I was wrong. So far so good!

    Damn, nice brick detailing, didn't even notice that in the previous renderings. This seems to be bringing the warm materials and transparency at-grade to make this a winner (everything above that was already 👌).
