    There's still this render of a 6 story building next to Home Envy. Looks like it could be residential.

    Noticed on the Paramount Middle Eastern Cuisine website that they will be opening up a currents location. Didn't see anything on the currents website though.

    Attention south Edmonton cookie lovers. We need your help! We are considering moving the Terwillegar location (23rd ave and Rabbit Hill Road) to Windermere by the theatre. Which location is better for you? Terwillegar or Windermere. I'm really curious to hear your thoughts!

    So does that mean they're moving from the one on Gateway? Or is this going to be a smaller office?

    Last plans I saw for that sliver of a site was a gas bar, a indoor sky dive place and one other building.

    East Side Mario's would be nice to return to the area, not sure why all the Edmonton area ones closed (except St. Albert).

    Because the food quality sucked and the concept sucked worse.

    Concept and food isn't much different than Olive Garden, I realize it isn't "real" Italian food. Judging by all of them closing at the same time it might have to do with the franchise holder having severe financial problems.

    When you serve boxed macaroni crap, staff who would rather NOT be there, atmosphere that is cheesy - you get no customers = financial problems. I hope the chain is dead dead dead.

    heh, Olive Garden is horrible as well. Hence why it's so often used as an easy joke in movies, TV shows, stand-up acts and song lyrics.

    No kidding.

    Years ago Top_Dawg and his ol' lady went to the one in the west end.

    So horrible it was laughable.

    Top_Dawg giggled when they recently ran those commercials pushing the ' order one entree and take one home free '.

    *** who would want one ?

    Drove past one of those digital billboard signs in the West end earlier this week and saw an ad for New Asian Village that says "COMING SOON TO WINDERMERE". Not sure if where and when, but has anyone else seen this?

    seems redundant to have two stores with basically the same name and concept in the same area is basically my point.

    Like Liqour Barn and Liqour Depot? Usually power centres only have one liquor store due to zoning, I'm sure this was recently revised and it's good to see variety. Be really interesting to see the activity and traffic flow (all modes) in this area this coming summer.

    There's also a Liquor Depot in the Walmart parking lot nearby. The third store in the Currents would indeed seem to indicate zoning has changed. I remember hearing that Superstore couldn't open a liquor store next to their Windemere Crossing store before because of a pre-existing liquor depot. Maybe they can open one now?

    The Drinks and Beyond website advertises buck a beer for River Valley beer. Do any of our resident beer aficionados (Top_Dawg?) know how good or bad it is?

    The Liquor Depot beside Walmart is turning into a Drinks & Beyond. There is no new store opening. There is still a Liquor Depot next to Superstore as well. A Solo Liquor has opened on Ellerslie Rd south of Ambleside too. We are a very well served area.

    Also, River Valley has a handful of beers. Light, Ale, and Red I think. Tastes fine for cheap beer. Brewed by Big Rock I believe.

    Drinks and Beyond is having its grand opening today. They're advertising on CHED today. Said something about a $10 gift card and glass of sparkling wine if you get there before 6:00 PM. Maybe some of you southwesters can give us a report

    In reference to warmer weather (peak of people on foot and bike), more stores being open, and more residents in the area.

    I thought the "Town Square" was suppose to have a water feature, a fountain or something... looks like they cheaped out. Also quiznos has a non pay of rent notice and is shut down and its going to be interesting to see what restaurant takes the old chilis spot, great location.

    I've heard Blaze Pizza at the old Chili's. Is the town square finished? I know there are lights up, but not sure if it's still being worked on.

    ^No. I can 100% confirm Blaze is not going into the former Chili's. Blaze is going into another development in Currents. A project across from the theater entrance I believe. In that 'town square' thing.

    Can vouch for these guys. Their flagship store out in Stony Plain is amazing with thoughtful and creative merchandising and excellent products.

    The Stony Plain location is also open 24 hours which I would assume would be the same for this new one.

    Quiznos has closed, or been evicted - sign up saying rent not paid apparently.

    I'm not surprised, and quite honestly wonder how the rest of the stores stay open. They are never busy, the food is more expensive than subway, but subway is better to me. Last time I tried quiznos I'm pretty sure I had food poisoning. This location was never busy, except a few construction workers at lunch, and after work it was always dead. I'm surprised it lasted so long. I wonder how long the marble slab or Opa next to it will last, neither seem to do very much business.

    Yeah, used to be a big fan of Quizno's back in the day...but too much variance between the franchises - I hear they want to buy back a bunch of stores and make them corporate. Marble slab is a puzzling anomele - can't see them doing much business in the winters - franchise guy has deep pockets - just a side business for him that must be bleeding him dry. Opa - they're multiplying like cockroaches - never been in one...

    But what we really need is Jersey's Mikes, Jimmy John's and Pot Belly to come up here and serve a product that's NOT gross Subway and disappointing Quizno's.

    I believe once the buildings immediately surrounding it are built they're going to start up a small farmer's market and begin programming the space. At least that's what I've heard. Right now it's just a pedestrian conduit from Ambleside to the theatre.

    no ****. its kinda like looking at the Ice district plaza in its current state and thinking that will be the end results, when its just a pathway to get to arena currently.... both are underwhelming because both are far from complete....

    Take a good look at that though. Sidewalks are configured the same, connection to the theatre is similar, buildings with patios haven't been built yet. No fountains and paver common area in the middle, which is disappointing but if built as is I'm sure we'd hear "too much concrete, where's the greenspace?". The parking surrounding the park is similar.

    That rendering was the vision when there was a residential component, which hasn't been part of the plan in basically a decade. Of course it would look different.

    good job of not waiting for a finished product before making a judgement, and ignoring the thread....

    the site plan still has all those features... https://www.camdevcorp.com/wp-conten...Site-Map-1.pdf .... They just haven't been built yet. I get it that the simpletons of the forum can't get this, but the rest of you? Good grief
