A couple of tidbits from the latest Inglewood CA Newsletter (planning committee report, page 30):

From the column:
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....
Do the "Nash lands" me we would lose the heritage building it sits in?

All 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.

If I remember correctly, that site was really bad, like a former creek that had been filled

Interesting. I know lots of lots have underground rivers and streams to contend with during excavation, Centre 10 had it really bad when it was going to be the Midtown towers, kept having the wood shoring blow out lol. Probably a major reason buildings now use secant piles and shotcrete almost exclusively.

Let's hope the Nashlands doesn't include the Nash itself.
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.

So sounds like both properties.

Both proposals are indeed 12 storey proposals.

The rendering shown earlier for this is an old rendering. The newer one shows a 12 storey building and is reflective of the massing. It's concept only for now. A design will be released wen the DP is submitted, but the massing is what they are targeting.
