You are psychic my friend.
I had a look at the DP and it looks a lot like that one, also similar to Ven, or this one in Bridgeland
I am of two minds on this project. I do like it quite a lot. It's very mature and modern. I do worry that it will look a little drab in the winter time though. Still, I think it continues to add great diversity to Kensington. It easily has the best 8-10 storey buildings and projects in the city right now.
Lol no kidding. I like the Minto proposal but would love it if it were off white or very light cream. Metallic gray panelling would be cool, though Pixel already has it.Perhaps the city should institute a policy where all project submission must have a summer (green), winter (white) and most of the time (brown) render.
Regardless of season it looks a heck of a lot better that the other Kensington project being floated.

I could not agree with you more. The War Memorial in Ottawa is more of how I think of a proper memorial , or if you mentioned the ones in Europe or more of a proper memorial .Better than feared less than hoped for?
Speaking of less than hope for, does anyone else thing the Memorial across the street ended up completely missing the mark? It's just a bunch of rusty steel facing this way and that. It doesn't feel like a proper memorial. If you ever find yourself in northern France, don't miss the Vimy Ridge memorial. There are few things every Canadian should do, but that's one of them.
I've never been to Ottawa, but it might happen this summer. I will be at the family cottage over Canada Day and well, what's a five hour drive to a Canadian? I'll be sure to check out the war memorial while I'm there.
I, I, I, I hate always beginning my sentences with I. I'll allow the irony to sink in. I'm going to try to work on this. Starting now.
The "Memorial" area around the 10th street bridge is a symptom of one of Calgary's unfortunate flaws. We just don't seem to be able to get our public plazas right. Olympic Plaza, James Short Park, that god awful thing that will hopefully someday become Fist Canadian East, Century Gardens, Tomkins Park, Eau Claire and this one. They all suck. I had to look up some of the names because they're so unmemorable. Not everything can be Central Memorial Park or Prince's Island, but we have to do better. My personal biggest beef though is Harley Hotchkiss park. The tall grass and horse sculptures are neat, but it's so sterile. My ultimate hope is that CMLC can make something nice out of Olympic Plaza and then maybe after a few years have gone by they can consider revisiting Harley Hotchkiss.
Don't even get me started on the Devonian Gardens...
