    I am watching this development with baited breath. I really like the potential to have a signature highrise community visible from our southern entrance. What a way to dispel this pimple on the prairie moniker...

        I wish it was closer to downtown, say that space between the river, 97 Ave and Leg grounds. the only positive of it being where it is is the LRT extension. But that's just me.

          This project will blow the doors off of the Edmonton market.

          Can't wait for this bad boy.

            too dense for that area IMO....but i would love to see a replica in the north edge, east jasper, and warehouse areas.

              Replica. A very scarry word. The market, demopgraphics and urban structure of south Edmonton and Century park are quite different than what exists in the East Village and North Edge.

              Century park is a more insular project than should occur in downtown. Although I do want to see architecture of simmilar quality to Century park downtown; I think the urban design should be approached in a different manner.

              Downtown requires an urban design approach that recognises the public nature of the area. Urban areas come with a more unpredictable development pattern and new developments need to reflect that dynamisim. Century park can get away with more things like lakes and highly designed ammenity features as it is a large site that is essentialy isolated form the surrounding urban fabric.

              (Yes I know they have paths and trails and connections; however the overiding attitude is inward looking. The marketing refering to a "resort" spells it out).

                  Century Park will have problems if it continues to focus inwards on itself. It needs to interact more with the existing roads, and neighbourhoods that surround it. It was painfull walking around the whole project, expecially in the south end where retail has already been built. This is why I turned down the idea of living near Century Park.
                  Edmonton first, everything else second.

                    when completed i think we will see some more interaction but i dont mind it facing inward for the parts people will see on the exterior will be nice looking.

                      I think the design of Century park is appropriate for the area. To place a very high density project into an existing suburban area is a difficult task; and I think it has been sucessfully done. As for the inwardness, it is an appropriate responce to the very real marketing situation of getting suburbanites into high rise/ high density living.

                      I do not feel that form of design can or should be transplanted into an existing high density urban area.

                      For Edmonton's urban areas, it might be more appropriate to look at the Yaletown/Arbutus type design in Vancouver rather than the False Creek/Coal Harbour type design.

                        hell...if we even get close to any of those designs we are far far better off than we are today.

                          ^I do admire what goes on in Vancouver. I find Edmonton seems to be looking to the "Vancouver model" a lot lately.

                          We should be careful to pull appropriate design elements/ideas from Vancouver but we should not expect to transplant Vancouver's accomplishments to Edmonton.

                          I truly believe in a contextual responce to design.

                            I agree and I've stated this before. Edmonton should adopt certain architectural and urban design elements from Vancouver but should NOT, replicate them.

                              Yes, but this can't be an excuse for the crap that has been built and garnished with a hint of 'edmontonian artistic/architectual flavour' IMO. Time will tell...
