I think once the West Ring Road opens up, traffic patterns on that half of the city will change dramatically, and the current bottleneck that is Bow/Sarcee will see a lot of relief. Plus, it would probably be easier to just up the frequency of the #98, so there is a direct connection to the West LRT. Would only be a 10 minute ride from here to the station, then 15 minutes into downtown. Not bad.

Crappy photo taken from far away while out for a walk, but Trico is mobilizing on their site today, looks like they will be putting in the utilities and upgrading 81st here pretty soon:

From Truman's marketing materials:

"existing bus lines will be re-routed to converge in the highest intensity areas of West District [...] transit service will be further bolstered with the introduction of a transit centre located in the heart of the community. The transit centre, a joint-venture between The City of Calgary and Truman, will integrate transit with civic life and provide a high-quality offstreet timing station, offering a more comfortable and welcoming waiting environment for a number of high frequency bus routes."

The Plaza project is up on one of the Ontario brokerage sites like all the others, a few more renderings available there:

Stripping and grading is well underway at the Trico's West 83rd Townhome site, including ripping up the existing 81st street to put in the deep utilities:

And it looks like Truman has applied for the building permit for The Quarters (taken from the My Property map on calgary.ca):
