Agreed there is a nice cluster of retail with some decent options already, as well as suprisingly dense adjacent areas. The Main Street program and pedestrian improvements are the real missing link here. Remarkable how narrow and unsafe the sidewalks/crossings are given that Edmonton Trail is one of those streets with the wild over-sized setback. There is space for everything - just needs to be implemented and it would become incredibly more walkable immediately.I think Edmonton Tr can be more like 10St in Kensington, slightly less walkable and much more traffic, but there are already some great restaurants / pubs there and the surrounding area is very walkable.
Agree. I mean, just that one intersection could become similar to that little Britannia area, but overall that area has more going for it.I'd say it's already surpassed Britannia given how many destinations are within a 10 minute walk or less. Edmonton Trail also has much better potential to develop into a main street than Elbow Dr. It's narrower and has several existing commercial lots that face the street. It will be even better if and when the LRT/BRT is built along Centre Street.
Lots of potential. I'd like to see a half dozen more of these kinds of developments built on Edmonton Trail, or Centre street for that matter.Edmonton Trail definitely has a lot of potential. I would like to see a few more proposals like Trail19 south of 16th.
