    What is the structure under construction on the NW corner of the plaza, above the parkade? The renders don't show any buildings in that area.

    Look at the red property line on the site plan (lower right of page 2) and you'll see that it encloses the structure currently on the east side of CN. From both this site plan, and the national...

    Actually, while the building abutting the Epcor tower to the south is owned by another entity, Qualico has the rights to building directly east of the CN tower, as you can see on page 2 of this doc:...

    As I said, I have no idea how the RAM has effected the site plan, but given that a stated desire of that project was to enhance the link between Chinatown and downtown, one assumes it will have a...

    From what I recall of the original site plan (a version of which you can find in here: http://www.connect2edmonton.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=5665), there is no public pedestrian access to 105ave from...

    So, it seems this is likely to be something that we've already heard of, but that hasn't been considered particularly serious/imminent at this point:

    (1) Procura's hotel, which was recently...

    I think the increased cost of not using existing traffic lanes (i.e. Increased property acquisition to make a viable ROW, or tunneling or elevating) should be included in this discussion. For seLRT,...

    The SW section of AHD was started in 2003 or 2004, which means it was designed well before the last boom, and most likely based on population growth stats from the 90s. You can hardly fault the...

    AHD is a provincial responsibility, as is Stoney Trail in Calgary. The city has nothing to do with it. While its a P3 project, some of which are design build, I believe the design, including the...

    Sorry, that would be the massive parkade on the back of EC-South, not north.

    I'm glad the technology is not the issue. I'm sure Oslo, Bergen, Ottawa, Toronto, Salt Lake, Minny, and Calgary, which all have or plan to have LF-LRT lines, will also be glad to hear they haven't...

    Med, doesn't your LRT build-out plan include low floor for your south-east and second west leg? If that is the case, it's hard to believe that low-floor in the snow is a real concern for you, rather...

    I have no problem with towers on this site (see Foster plan), but to suggest that they're necessary to achieve the desired urban feel is wrong. In addition, to suggest parkland is superfluous in an...

    I like MNIM's ideas but I do think they've emphasized themeatic context (i.e. natural prairie landscape and river valley) over the urban context. The other plans, especially Perkins, KCAP, and...

    My thoughts from SSP:

    They're all strong submissions that vary along a similar theme (e.g. circulation and locally inspired park systems following the layout of the old runways). BNIM is certainly...

    Calgary's wLRT is much more grade separated than the rest of their system, which seems to have served them fairly well. For example, their neLRT line runs at grade across just about all...

    I'm amazed that you truly believe that. We are not building a streetcar network; we are building an exclusive ROW lrt with signal priority at every at grade intersections and grade separation where...

    3.8 billiion includes Nait. $3billion is the cost of seLRT-wLRT portion.

    I want an efficient, city-wide lrt-system, as well as interesting places and neighbourhoods for it to stop in. Let's get out priorities straight; why do my taxes have to be wasted paying for silky...

    seLRT and wLRT price tags have been pretty consistently around $3b from what I recall. The Nait price tag, coming in at more than $200m/km, still seems ridiculous to me.
  23. As I previously stated, the vast majority of the...

    As I previously stated, the vast majority of the seLRT and wLRT ROW is not a major design departure from sLRT. However, for some reason, you like to compare it to Toronto's mixed traffic street...

    What I meant to say, perhaps inarticulately, was that the wLRT should be designed to serve what exists rather to serve what may exist.

    Not to be obvious, but 100% of the city's growth over the past 30 years occurred within the existing built up area. My concern is with serving the demand in those areas. Given the LRT has yet to...
