    Fixing Calgary's Business District

    I was in there like 10 years ago after they renovated it and I thought it was a pretty nice space. You could have that theatre running with artist lots in the building above or something, not sure who would spend all th money required for that though.

    Sweet, I like Analog!

    I far prefer the conjoined twins to the ugly and plain 1940's bungalows they are replacing.

    Probably an elevator somewhere.

    Upcoming US election

    What I'm most curious about is what happens to the Republican Party if and when Trump loses. They went far right with the Tea Party movement, and have only gotten further right since then, where are all the rational, moderate Conservatives?

    Mayor Naheed Nenshi's Calgary

    Has Nenshi indicated intent to run again or step down? I think he has done a great job, but it's time for some new blood.

    Calgary Under the UCP

    I don't know, it seemed pretty obvious that Kenny had an ideological agenda, but people were suckered in by his promises to create jobs.

    Calgary Under the UCP

    Kenny wants private healthcare and wants to change the education curriculum to something completely ridiculous. Is it just me, or was electing the UCP a major error on the part of Albertans?

    Compare that angle to 10 - 15 years ago, it's come a very long way.

    Calgary | UPTEN | 121.91m | 37s | Strategic Group

    Those stairs kept the floor of the building next door just above water in 2013, so the flood plain thing is legit. Apparently the elevator in that building was in the parkade when the flood hit, and it took them a year to get fixed lol.

    Speaking of main floor CRU spaces, there is a chicken place open in Nuera now, that only took 10 years?

    Calgary | UPTEN | 121.91m | 37s | Strategic Group

    Walked by this about an hour ago, and I think the podium here is one of my favourite so far in Calgary, very open and welcoming to people on the sidewalk.

    Calgary | West Village Towers | 150m | 41s | Cidex Group | NORR Dubai Yahya Jan

    The towers could have been so much better, but they still easily beat pretty much every building around them. The west end is the most underwhelming high-rise neighbourhood we have though, so that really isn't saying much lol. I've said it before, the tenants in the podium can make or break this...

    Poor Calgary tower, so small and insignificant.

    Fixing Calgary's Business District

    I think the CBD will get better as more upgrades are made to the older building stock and more buildings are converted to residential. There are a ton of companies that were pushed out of the core by the big spending O&G companies, so I expect more of them to move back as their leases elsewhere...

    Is this the actual design, or just a concept to guide the design? Kind of surprised this is going ahead with the current state of City finances...

    General Construction Updates

    Their sign is still there, so I would assume they still have some presence...
