The epicenter of the Beltline.
It’s fast becoming the centre of the Beltline if it isn’t already. The other candidate for centre of the Beltline is fourth Street and 17th Ave. It doesn’t have the Best Buy or Canadian tire like eighth Street but it does have a corridor that goes through 17th Ave. and keeps going south. That intersection has the best potential to be the epicentre, But when they built that one story retail plaza it kind of killed it.

Apparently they are having some sort of invitation only event on the 25th, and then the doors fully open to the public on the 26th.
Sorry about that, I guess they're just advertising early. It was a Pattison screen o saw it on. Glad they're getting the word out!

Even better, buy out the two apartments next door and build up. Combined dental office and Puff N' Stuff lot too small to maximize value on a meaningful scale.

I would love if a developer acquired this building along with the dental office to continue the development along 8th.

No question that 8th Street and 17th Ave has been established as the heart of the Beltline.

Holy man, those pictures look amazing. The yuppies in the Beltline and capitalists in Upper Mount Royal are all probably sopping wet for this place!

Looks amazing. Now it's time for the City to step up it's part on this hub as it finally has enough mass. 8th Street and 17th Ave streetscapes and sidewalk widenings need to get some love. The shitty condition of our nearby sidewalks and overly wide 8th Street is increasingly inconsistent (not to mention incredibly inaccessible/unfit for increasing pedestrian loads, wheelchairs, folks with mobility challenges) with the character and reality of this area of the neighbourhood. Let's reward good urban form, good urban culture, increasing pedestrian volumes with investment to match.
