    Covid-19

    Influx of new members sometimes brings interesting characters. Some lack any sense or wits, too. Covid-Karen: I hadn't heard that one before. Is that something a Covidiot made up to make themselves feel better? Are you that moron that was painted like Braveheart at the Whistle Stop protest of...

    I am interested to see if they will follow the render for the crown directly or slightly adjust. There is potential for a bit taller of a spire on the one side, and IMO it would look hella classy with this build.

    UW is totally right, such small design changes would make such an enormous difference. I can't believe it's all just Value engineering.

    IIRC the landlord is related to the lash lady you've been feuding with, no? Sucks that this is the situation that materialized. I hope you are able to find a suitable space!

    I love this tower. Might just be because of how much I hate how WV turned out after loving the render, but this one just blows it to smithereens

    *cries* Though it would be nice if we would do something like investing in nuclear energy (+ therefore nuclear science, opening potential areas for research and expansion in the future). Alas.

    If only eh- it would be just amazing if that cat had never been let out of the bag. We would have like 8 more keystone XLs lol.

    The form/ shape of the towers is fine, it's all the details that they messed up. Weird random colored panels on the top, giant 2 story mechanical louvre visible from space, lack of advertised glass on top. I would have also preferred a slight height difference between the two instead of two...

    General Construction Updates

    Quick conceptual drawing of the above lol. You could even put a bigger one in the middle of Prince's Island and in the park on 17th as sort of terminus points lol. Anyways, enough random musing for me this morning.

    General Construction Updates

    If you were to do placemaking with them, I think it would be best to make a trail of them (one at every intersection as you said) that runs N/S through downtown and connects 17th, Stephen Ave, through CBD to China town or to Eau Claire, then to the riverwalk. That way there's a lit/ fun...

    Ryan Jespersen had the former CEO of Husky on his show yesterday, where he admitted that large scale pipeline projects make very little sense today. If the oil companies have known this for so long, why is our bumbling leader sinking all of our public funds into these projects? Is he being...

    Got to love someone coming in here and making baseless assumptions while being completely unwilling to logically defend them. This place is extremely reasonable, but you have to be willing to defend a stance. That stance is actually defensible with some effort IMO, but the truth is that Biden...

    I attended U of A and then worked for an international fraternity. As such I had the fortune of visiting many campuses and experiencing campus life across NA. I might suggest that you didn't get the full U of A experience. I also think you're selling SFU a bit short. They don't compare to some...

    It is weird. When I was young I recall videos about them being even more massive, and seeing them I thought they were eroding but could hardly imagine it being as dramatic as they claimed it would be. Seeing them now 30 years later I am in shock that it is worse even than they claimed... the ice...

    I think the ultimate security of our water supply is in question in the event of climate changing as the worst models predict.
