Reminds me of Avenue 33. Looks pretty solid, and wil be good toward building more corridor at 33rd. I think ultimately it's good, materials will decide how good.
It doesn't say anything about retail on this billboard, but I believe the zoning change they are requesting is to a mixed-use designation and the building looks relatively retail friendly at the ground level. My main concern is that all the buildings alone 33 Ave are designed in a way that they could be easily converted to retail in the future.

Sounds like the ground floor units will be targetted as live work units.

Good news for Sarina, they have done some decent projects and this looks like another addition to that portfolio. Is the main floor retail?

I like live work. iIt generally attracts interesting retail over the usual chains. The building has good form. It would be better with another storey or two and grade level at street level.

In Calgary live/work generally means you have a nondescript townhouse with a "home" office on the main floor and are allowed a small sign to denote that you're an accountant, lawyer or any other business that requires no street level presence. Hopefully that changes.
