  • Columbia BLVD (105ave) Streetscape - 109-119st

    Columbia BLVD (105ave) back on track???

    105 Avenue Streetscape

    About the Project
    105 Avenue is emerging as a key corridor in the revitalization of the north edge of Downtown. In 2014, the City will begin streetscape improvements to help make 105 Avenue more accessible, better designed and pedestrian-friendly.

    The design will focus on 105 Avenue between 109 Street and 119 Street, with the construction limits to be confirmed based on the budget available and scope of work. Future streetscape improvements will be determined based on funding availability.

    Where We Are Today
    105 Avenue Streetscape is now in the design stage. Roadway construction is expected to begin in spring 2014 with completion dependent on the limits identified during design.

    105ave needs more streets connecting to 104ave.

      Then again, maybe not. Part of its charm might be lack of through streets.

      Lots of potential there, that's for sure. Some nifty condos. Five or ten too many transmission shops ...but meh, give it time!

        Right now it feels like the backalley to the Oliver power centre.

          It's an ugly area, that's for sure. Totally ruined by being cut off by Oliver Square.
          Over promise and under deliver. It’s the most Edmonton thing you can do.

            So how is that any different than the areas East of 112th being cut off by MacEwan? That area long pre-dates both Oliver Square and MacEwan, and it's current state has a lot to do with it once being directly beside a huge rail yard. By comparison, Oliver is "cut off" from 104th from 116th to 112th and doesn't seem harmed by it.

              ^^^ It's worse than that. There's not even any pedestrian access between the two.
              ^^ Agreed.

              The developments to date have missed a huge opportunity for stitching up the street grid between 104 and 105 Av. There should have been pedestrian accesses every block and through streets every 2-3 blocks at a minimum. 107 St should have gone under MacEwan (providing access to the MacEwan parkade as well as a street connection) and at least one street should have been connected between 109 St and 116 St.

                  ^ Road? Or just pedestrian access?

                  105 Ave definitely needs sidewalks. Yes it has too many auto garages and such, although I hope my Auto Details stays near the inner core.

                      How about pedestrian / cyclist access at 110 St where the railtown multi-use trail terminates?

                        This is happening because Central McDougall and Queen Mary Park are getting Neighbourhood Renewal in 2015-2018 cycle:

                        Hopefully Columbia Boulevard design/North Edge Study is used, and not just whatever Transportation wants to do.

                          West Downtown Complete Streets (WDCS) (http://edmontonbikes.ca/wdcs) just had a presentation and Q&A from the City (tonight!) regarding 105 Ave.

                          Consultations this Fall, utility work in 2014, and maybe some actual construction happening in late 2014.

                          WDCS will be meeting again on May 2. You can join the WDCS mailing on the website to get involved and talk about pedestrian and cycling connections between 96 St - 127 St (and beyond to 142 St along 102 Ave).

                              Yay! I'm looking forward to seeing this underway.

                              I'm also curious about the budget and scope.
