This is the property and what is around it. Train tracks are just to the east of it.The density is ok, would prefer to see something like SoBow there over 3 storey wood frame.
I wonder where that puts Arts Commons/Glenbow/Vertigo on the cultural & entertainment map. They are far enough apart from the BMO/Stampede that you might confuse someone not from Calgary.
No but the city could pass a bylaw registering the buildings as municipal historic resources giving them legal protection.The city's DP site shows the development on second street encompassing both the brick house and the small apartment building I would be extremely annoyed if in this time of down-turned economy, covid19 and stalled projects, this project went ahead. Same for the proposal at Red's.
Is there some kind of secret bylaw in Calgary that says you can't building on an empty lot, it has to involve tearing down cool old buildings
