    Part of growth and reality. I'm not pleased with tonnes of farmland still dominating downtown

    It's also called incorporation.

    Maybe they could remove that sweet caporal ghost sign brick by brick and move it near the neon museum where more people could see it

    That would ideal. Edmonton has already carelessly destroyed enough of its history.

    The City is not fond of it due to its genre.

    Yes, let's ignore history. That way we're not bound to repeat it.

    Hang on ....

    Couldn't the brickwork be incorporated into one of the walls of the new podium somehow?

    Deconstructed, removed from site, or tied into another art piece somewhere in the downtown area would be a great addition/save/incorporation. Shame really, if not.

    Yeah, more bits and pieces scattered hither and yon. That's Edmonton's architectural history.

    Incorporate it back to the new structure.

    It would be nice if a developer picks this up and comes up with something sooner than later.
    LRT is our future, time to push forward.

    Error on opening. What was the actual address?

    It is that west lot next to the Chinese senior centre or across the street from that new hotel (on the north side of it).

    A sidenote to the park, but awesome and hopefully a permanent feature to follow.

    The fact that it won an award of merit in the "Unimplemented Urban Design Plans" category speaks volumes.
