    I think the reusability aspect is pretty cool. Obviously they're not gonna throw all that extra money into its construction if they don't think it will be possible to convert someday. Either way, I think this is a pretty fantastically scaled and designed building to be the termination vista when looking north on 3rd Street SE. Bravo CMLC, another home run for the EV.

    It's a fantastic design and the innovation centre is a great addition as well. This is more than just a parking garage so the adaptive reuse is making more sense. The residential being proposed really threw me off.

    I'd think it could be a great future site for Crossroads Market if the market ever gets kicked out of the current location for redevelopment.

    Not a bad idea. I was thinking workshops and such, but a market might be better. If there's not much slope there may not even be any need to change the floor.

    The good news is that the Dalhousie proposal was approved. Spokesperson for Calgary Co-op said they want to get started on this early next year. The Mission project will start this year. Have not heard anything more about Winston Heights other than the community seems to be embracing it.

    Markets are okay. My preferences smaller scale shops. I love having a neighbourhood butcher, cheese shop, bakery and, fruits & vegetable market close to home. The East Village would be perfect for this. The grocer where you still will be doing the majority of your shopping is easier to walk to than to drive.

    Are there any renderings floating around for the Mission project? (Macleod Trail and Mission Road right?) I haven't been able to find any online so far

    There was one rendering a while ago. It's been called the Mission project, but it's more in Erlton (across from Heninger Toyota)

    Awesome, thanks! Looks a bit better than the other CO-OP sites proposed imo (apart from the gas station, although I guess that could be redeveloped in the future if need be)

    I'm not a huge fan of the Dalhousie Co-Op proposal, but I mean, it's a significant improvement and considering how early on Calgary is in our movement towards densifying the suburbs, I'll give it a one-thumb-up. The 16 Ave dumpster fire proposal though... sigh.

    I hope they plan to utilize some of that space above shops. Seems like a waste when you could have another row of shops on top.
