      So many unfinished, uncompleted, unrealized and unfunded projects that had things torn down with nothing put up in their place.... Le Sigh.

      Hopefully Stantec builds something nice.

        I believe the Servus building was demolished and turned into a parking lot in revenge for not getting the go-ahead from city hall.
        Edmonton first, everything else second.

            He expected to lease the entire building to the gov't I believe which didn't happen.

              ^not sure if that is correct to be honest. Either way, I suspect it will be a next phase in coming years.

                It was a rumor that was kicked around...

                  To be honest i hope the next phase is ressy.

                    So based on what I'm reading on SSP (Ian's comments below), I'm assuming that 102 Street Centre was not successful, or they cut down on the number of storeys. They aparently went with someting that would be the new 3rd or 4th tallest tower.

                    Nope. Wont be a new tallest, but will be a significant tower for the downtown core.

                      That was correct.

                      Made a HUGE mistake by not going for some sort of "green" certification on the retrofit. Cost them their target tenant
                      Over promise and under deliver. It’s the most Edmonton thing you can do.

                        That's what I've heard. And the reason I've heard the gov't didn't choose them was over LEED requirements.... Ooops.

                          That is correct. I have a friend who was high up in Alberta Infrastructure at the time who told me about it.

                            Musing...could be an excuse because "they" wanted to really be elsewhere...

                              arena tower 2?
                              102st?
                              EDAAC?
