Well, tough to follow the RNDSQR Block proposal, but still need to post updates on other projects.... so with that I give you... A SUBURBAN OFFICE BUILDING!!!..
Okay. This is just the land use going to CPC, but a concurrent DP has been submitted. Remington Develompent. Location is at 110603 14th Street NE
DP summary:

I mean, just look at that Molok waste disposal system!

One other interesting one going to CPC next week, just land use, is the upzoning of an entire block of houses directly adjacent to the 45th Street SW C-Train station in the community of Westgate:

Going from current R-C1 zoning to M-U1f3.5h17, so mixed-use, height of 17m with a 3.5 FAR.

There is a rendering of a proposed design, but keep in mind no DP submitted. This is from the open house boards:

I don't know if the community association supports this. Very vaguely worded letter:

Question for y’all - how many residential units are currently under construction in the Centre City (Downtown and Beltline)? The second tower at West Village Towers and got me thinking, we must have a couple thousand on the go.

Actually about double that!
Some of these are just finishing up construction, but because they haven't had move-ins I think of them as still u/c. Place 10 hasn't started yet, but I've added it because I think it will be soon.

U/C Beltline
11th and 11th - 369
One Tower - 379
500 Block South - 463
Curtis Block - 628
Redstone - 137
Cube - 66

Downtown
West Village Towers - 554
5th and Third - 220
933 - 5th - 74
The Hat 7th Ave - 66
Place 10 - ~850
Concord - 110
Barron conversion -100

~4000 units

Has anyone heard any news about the General Block by RNDSQR in Bridgeland? I always hate it when people ask this cause updates are allllways posted here, but this project is so small it might be under the radar.

Two of the three retail bays have already been leased (Village Ice Cream and Phil & Sebastians), but most recent news from their team was after community engagement and DP submissions back in July. The community was in support, so I'm just not sure why no news on approval or construction yet. Here's hoping it's a revision to have two floors of rental on top, instead of one floor of office. *crosses fingers*


Edit: Nevermind, all three bays are least, UNA Pizza being the third. All local Calgary establishments. Damn 😍

This site can potentially become a catalyst for more retail midrises along this LRT station becoming a proper integrated TOD, similar to what Vancouver has. One of our biggest problems for TOD's is that our LRT stations are either located in the middle of highways or residential areas restrictng developments from properly integrating with the stations. I hope the zoning changes and this goes ahead. It might not seem like it yet but this could be a game changer for Calgarys TOD scene.

I haven't heard anything on this one, but it would be great to see it built. It's a small project, but it's a game changer. A Village Ice Cream is an instant vibrancy machine, add in a Phil's and an Una and you've got a busy little area.

Interesting article. I don't even remember a gas station at the Sears. The article says it operated until the mid 90's.

Yeah no idea there was a gas station there, though I didn't hang out in the area till I went to SAIT in the early 00's

News on the North Hill Mall site:
The way that article is written, it gives the impression that Sears Canada is 'going bankrupt. They are not going.... they are gone... long gone! Good luck finding anyone else to take responsibility for the clean up.
Just another hurdle in getting that site developed. It is such an eyesore now. A few years ago, Sears and Concord Pacific announced they had a joint development venture for that site. Maybe Concord Pacific will kick in, just to keep their oar in the water.
