The stage faces pretty much west, a little bit to the south maybe. Here's the setup last Stampede. (The grey boxes near the stage were risers for seating).

It's a pretty small stage; nowhere near the size of the Coke, as it exists right now. The teal arc I drew is roughly 30m, which is about the same distance as the front of the Coke stage to the sound & light booth/bathroom building. If this stage were oriented northeast, it could handle a lot larger crowds in the meadow where the tipis are.

One perpetual missed opportunity is that we're in a renaissance of Aboriginal music in Canada right now, and this stage shuts down at sunset during the Stampede. A nightly music show -- even a few nights at first -- would be great.

Totally, what is this? An amphitheater for ants? It needs to be at least 3x bigger!
The space in Enmax Park is not a stage. It is flat, not elevated, but covered area and would not be suitable for large gatherings of anything. There is no sloped land unless you constructed something on Scotsman Hill looking west into the park. I would say that it is probably too steep to do that.

Some stats that are a bit old (July), but interesting still. For the last couple of years apartment starts and single family starts are fairly close.

^^^If that trend can keep up for the next 10 years Calgary will look and feel much different.
It'll matter at least as much where those units end up being located as the breakdown of type. 1,500 apartments a year - but if 1,000+ are on the deep fringes, locked away from transit, active transportation or walkable corridors it's a lot of potential left idle.

7300 rental units under construction. I'm dying🤤🤤🤤 Probably 5500 of those in the core areas (Downtown, Beltline, Mission, Bridgeland, Inglewood, Kensington, Sunalta).
