    I was hoping Beljan's next project would be the powerplant, but this will do. Excited what he has in store for this.

    The power plant will take some time. If there's an opportunity for us to be involved then we're game. But this is our next key redevelopment on Whyte Avenue.

    Chris, has Beljan ever done new builds? Also, can you guys buy up most of the other buildings around Whyte and work your magic? Please?
    They're going to park their car over there. You're going to park your car over here. Get it?

    Yes we have. St.Claire on 106 Avenue and 82 Street, the west half of Crawford Block is an entirely new 5-storey building, the two-storey portion of the Lynnwood Shopping Centre is a new build, and more coming. But our first passion is the adaptive reuse of existing buildings.

    Excited about the upgrades, but will truly miss the Beer Slammers at the current Strat.

    I am excited to see the continuation in activating the laneway in the back. The city needs to do its part and repave the alley though.
    Edmonton first, everything else second.

    Can’t wait to see this one go ahead. When does the work begin? When is it expected to finish?

    This is really exciting to see. I really love how this building will also now engage the back alley. I hope the city considers repaving/renewing the alley way to further encourage pedestrians.

    I think the city is considering it. I know Ben Henderson feels it should be treated like a roadway since there are multiple businesses that are going to have their front doors onto the alley (Sugared and Spiced, plus the new restaurant going in above them, and someone who may go into the Dominion Hotel space, and now the Strathcona Hotel space).

    Well a roadway would be ok but I think if they focused more on encouraging pedestrian movement I think it would very much help businesses there be more successful.
    LRT is our future, time to push forward.

    Sorry, when I said a “roadway,” I meant it as an area that the city needs to upkeep; pave, beautify, whatever. Different than a back alley that doesn’t get the same treatment.

    We're in the process of finalizing our design and budget. We need to see how much we can afford to spend based on what we think we can lease the space for. None the less if all goes as planned we would like to be in a position to start moving by the end of this quarter.

    This is something we are also pushing for. Get the alley re-paved and add some lighting to help create a space that accommodates both vehicles and people.

    Alleyways can be incredible spaces. This would be amazing.

    I wish the windows could open - make it a much more inviting space and certainly more profitable.
