If I remember correctly, that site was really bad, like a former creek that had been filledAll of Calgary that's in the river valley has water table issues, shouldn't be enough to derail a project. I'm glad that project didn't go ahead, we have more than enough faux history lol.
I think this is the site where the Starbucks, liquor store and Trail appliances sits. You can see the outline of the red barn in the background.
It's kinda funny...The strip mall was only built in 2009.
From the newsletter:
"Landstar Developments has a proposal for the Trail Appliances/Starbucks site, adjacent to the Nash, for a mixed-use building to be developed in conjunction with a project on the Nash lands which are zoned to go to 12 storeys."
So sounds like both properties.
