The good side of it, is there isn't really much right around that location. Normally this would be a complete eye-sore right along the river, but it's tucked in along Crowchild Trail and hopefully won't be very prominent.

From where?
From the Crowchild Bridge, from Sunalta School, from Shaganappi. It will also be a constant presence on in the river view from the north side as well.

If we build crap along our beautiful river, our beautiful river will start to look like crap. I know it's a difficult property and there's not much that could go there, but sometimes it's better to wish for no development than 6-storey warehouses covered in cheap aluminum siding.

I don’t remember, are they also redoing the sidewalks and plaza in and around old city hall? I hope they replant all the old elms that used to stand there. City Hall plaza is garbage and needs a major overhaul. Acres of boring and bland brushed concrete, a terrible excuse for a water fountain, and cracked steps.
