  • Strathearn Heights Development restarted

    ADMIN EDIT - this came from the old Strathern Plan thread. Since it is now back in the spotlight, a new thread is in order.

    Back in business...

    *I should note that I was formally asked to provide these by the Nearctic Group.

      In addition to the Strathearn redevelopment, I know of another major project that is being planned for that area. Really exciting stuff, but sadly I cannot divulge any info.

        The scuttlebutt around the SE is that the Holyrood infill on 85st is rolling again.

          I see they're planning on increasing the height of the towers to accomodate more units. I can't see Strathearn residents being to thrilled with that, especially when considering how much they fought this project when it was before council

            I hope so. That strip needs some serious updating. I emailed Westcorp a while back and begged them not to make it ugly. There last proposal was bland as can be. Make it modern and bigger.

              Both increases and decreases... Very minor at that.

                Looks like two decreases and 5 increases from that invitation.

                    These towers will obstruct our view of downtown (we're in Holyrood), but I don't care. I can't wait for this development to get going. It's going to do so much for the area.

                      At the meeting you will also get a first look at the design for the new community hall.

                        The massing looks great to me.

                              Just back from the Strathearn open house, very well presented and the urban design/architectural concept drawings are some of the best I have seen if not the best in Edmonton... and on par Tor/Van. Very modern boxy/extruded box, but equally creative and well though out.
