    Agenda:
    11:30 AM - Registration and Lunch
    12:00 PM - Presentation by High Level Line and Prairie Sky Gondola

    Location:
    Stantec Tower, 4th Floor (10220 103 Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0K4)

    Edmonton’s river valley is both the beloved jewel of the city, and a gulf between the north and south. Two ambitious proposals are now seeking to bridge this divide from Downtown to Old Strathcona: in the east, a privately-funded gondola linking the two banks with the Rossdale area and powerplant; on the west edge, a re-imagining of the High Level Bridge as a corridor for multi-modal transportation and greenery.

    Beyond transportation, what impact could these projects have for the neighbourhoods they would connect? Can they be catalysts for investment and redevelopment? A development industry panel weighs in.

    High Level Line proposes a future where diverse neighbourhoods in central Edmonton are stitched together. Where Jasper Avenue and Whyte Avenue are connected and the experience between the two is so special that it makes us feel like tourists in our own city.

    The Line has the ability to transform the urban fabric surrounding it. It stimulates the surrounding properties and enables a wide variety of uses: retail and residential frontages, dining, recreation, agriculture, celebration, people-watching and getting close to nature.

    Prairie Sky Gondola

    Prairie Sky is a privately held company that will provide a modern day transportation and recreation system to connect communities and empower city builders in urban Edmonton.

            • Will the tunnel (see Garneau Tunnel) under that building south of the high level be widened to allow graffitti artists to do their art while the tram passes? Currently, its pretty tight... but the rendering above has me hopeful!

              • No, it can't be widened. But that is better when the graffiti artists and tourists get squeezed out by the tram like toothpaste though the tube...

                • What about the person in the first picture with their foot less than 6 inches from the rail with the tram hading their way?

                    • Right IanO, let's talk about the comparisons with the HLB suicide barrier fiasco. Just like HK...

                      • Maybe we can setup a market right on the tracks too, that way we get the full world culture feelings from Europe, Asia, HK, India... The best I tell you.

                        • So what all happened with this and is it going anywhere into the future?
