Once the !st is Sold Out.Not Sure When Construction Will Start. I Give it a Year or So.

Tnx,

I really love the B.U.M.P. What a great way to add colour to the Beltline. From four pieces last year, to another ten this year. A relatively inexpensive way to add to the area and create even more of a destination for people to flock to. Fantastic!

I just got back from Berlin and my wife and I did a graffiti tour. Some were commissioned pieces and some weren't. It is amazing how much having art on bland building walls creates a vibrancy in a neighbourhood.

Man, I love that park. I don't know if anybody remembers the way it used to be before they redid it a few year back, but it's sooooo much better.

This sucks: https://calgaryherald.com/news/loca...jan-1-closure-of-beltline-and-inglewood-pools

I recall an earlier discussion (in one of the building threads) about how the inner-city was in desperate need for increased community services to accommodate the rapidly increasing residential population. Typical Calgary mindset: shut down what little community spaces exist in the inner-city to help subsidize more suburban sprawl. Total insanity.

It's that time of year again!

Looks like 15 new murals are going up in the Beltline:

I guess the artwork in the 1 St SE underpass is an improvement over what was there however they have painted that entire stretch .... black on both sides of the street. Even with lights, it is pretty dark at night.
