    I like it. Some of that will depend on finish materials. Bright green EIFS stucco might not look so great.

    Nice to see some different infill height and shape.

    Thankfully we sold the unit next door a few years ago before any of this happened. I wouldn't want neighbours with that view of my rooftop patio.

    I wish they had ground floor retail, lost opportunity. Otherwise not too bad. Given that Newstudio is designing it gives me some hope that it will turn out ok.

    Chris, I had a conversation with the owners, and they looked into having retail, but were faced with a few problems.

    One floor for parking, all for the unit owners. Two visitor parking and one handicap spot outside.
    Retail needs parking, or a relaxation. If relaxation granted, need to find tenants that don't need/want parking for their customers.
    Loading zone needed for commercial spaces.
    There was a thought that they could add some height as a tradeoff for retail, but that would mean second floor for parkade, plus a change in materials (wood to steel/concrete) which adds to their costs. Sounds like they'd have to be at 10-12 stories to recoup that.
    If a retailer that handle food comes in, venting could be an issue, as they could only vent towards the alley.

    It sounds like they explored retail early on, then wrote it off due to parking issues. When they started hearing from the community that retail would be appreciated they were already too far into the process and changes would result in a delay as things get reworked.

    It's disappointing, but given the parking required, and the complete lack of parking in the neighbour hood, I can understand why they don't have it. Pretty frustrating.

    Bring on better transit on Whyte and 99st/to Downtown and better zoning rules around parking. Knew that would be a factor. How do you feel Gord/your neighbours about if another location this size was allowed retail, with little on-site parking, in the area?

    Well, I can't say anything for the neighbours, but I'd be okay with it, but only because I'd like more retail around here. I can see why parking is such an issue, though. You'd really need to find the right business to go into a building with little parking, as parking in the neighbourhood is tight as it is. We had friends over last night and they parked about a block away; 30 mins later and there was lots of parking on the street, and an hour after that there wasn't anything at all (we ran out to pick up food). It's really weird.

    I think that something needs to get fixed if one of the most walkable neighbourhoods in the city, with people who support local, one-off businesses, can't get retail in a 6 storey building. The parking mindset is so difficult to change in the city.

    As for the building itself, I like it... minus the weird neon yellow/green. I hope they change that.

    ^We've done away with parking in some of our buildings - Crawford Block. We've also proposed shared parking between visitor and commercial parking stalls - St. Claire in Forest Heights. Its doable and City administration is usually ok with granting a variance for no parking along 'Transit Avenues', which I believe 99 Street is.

    Yup, Crawford Block was brought up. There's lots of nearby parking though, including a pretty massive parking lot kitty-corner to your building. This, however, wouldn't have any parking at all nearby. I guess they just aren't willing to delay construction to change plans and pursue retail space this late in the game.

    They also seemed extremely unconnected/educated with other buildings going up in the area, and the general mood of council towards the parking issue. They went in thinking that rules were set in stone, and made their plans based on that.

    I look forward to this area developing a lot- I lived just behind the H20/Joy's Lucky 7 building for years, and I NEVER traveled east of where I lived. The problem is, that whole area developed a reputation for having the "bad homeless people"- the more normal ones could be found west, but as soon as you hit the tracks (or, more accurately, THAT FREAKING WASHROOM, which almost immediately became a snake pit that no normal person would DREAM of entering), it was like the screamers and the jittery ones and the fighters all came out of the woodwork. The dreaded "cement seating place" just in front of the H20 lounge was the worst- I've talked to cops who've actually petitioned the city to demolish just that wall, because of how it was congregating people.

    There are a few neat shops down that way (Warp One; the Board Game place), but still not quite enough to get off that particular reputation. The Sun Toyota building is also legendary for the sketchy types hanging around it- the huge awning, ample shade & hiding places, and the fact that it's also a bus station really adds up.

    What's funny is that some of the nicest places in the entire neighborhood are the condos hidden away a few blocks south of that area.

    Yeah, Top_Dawg hears ya jabroni.

    It's exactly like you say.

    And in another month the Mac's store will also become a big magnet for them for the rest of the summer.

    They panhandle there cause it's right next to Liquor Depot.

    Also, a lot of punks shoplift at that Liquor Depot because there's so many escape routes into Ritchie where they can get lost.

    I walked in there once to dispose of a used needle I found on the ground in front of my apartment, and you wouldn't believe the smell. It was only the middle of the day, and of course there was a guy sleeping in there. At all hours of the day you'll see sketchy types hanging around the place (and the bus stop right nearby)- it's become the major thoroughfare for them in the Strathcona area. I don't think I've ever seen a normal person using the thing.

    The police I've talked to say they're CONSTANTLY getting people with warrants out of there, but as it's such a minor penalty (maybe a night in jail for dozens of tickets), they just come right back. It's just horrendous.

    Do not touch used needles. The proper procedure is to call the fire department, as they can properly dispose of them (yup, fire department).

    I used the bathroom once, but that was in the first week it was open.

    Living in McCauley, I come across used syringes on a regular basis and feel quite comfortable disposing of them myself.

    First step is to inspect the discarded needle to see if the tip has its plastic cover on it or not. If the plastic cover is not on, take extra care to make sure you don't touch the exposed needle. Put on a pair of good work gloves, pick it up by the plastic cylindrical tube, and place into a sealed container like a used bleach bottle with a cap. Used syringes in sealed containers can be taken to an Eco-Centre.

    The City of Edmonton has published a detailed guide to how to safely dispose of needles.

    Yeah, I just kicked it into a box I had, while wearing gloves just in case, then dumped it into their "Sharps Disposal" thing. Had the stupid thing in my apartment for months because I kept forgetting to take it out.

    So, the big pile of dirt at the old Shell location on Whyte is apparently a big problem. I had called the city about it a year ago, and someone got back to me twice in a couple of weeks. He was very active on the file, and then I didn't hear anything about it. I was talking about it with some neighbours last week and decided to follow up with the person I spoke to last year. He couldn't tell me much about it, but apparently the property owner was hostile towards the city, and it went to court (sounds like there's something else coming up, but I could be wrong). Anyway, the other day there was some more movement on the site; they were taking dirt away. Pretty crazy.

    Driving by today I noticed that 3 properties have been demolished on 99 street and 80 avenue, looks like another multi family project going in there. Also on the corner of 99 street and 80 ave a single house was demolished as well, with an adjacent property for sale as well. Anyone have any word on what's slated for this stretch?

    Using Maps.edmonton.ca, and looking at the applications, it looks like it's Brass III that's going in at 99 st and 80 Ave. That's a VERY handy site when you want to look up information on a property, and applications that have been made for it.

    Came home from vacation today to see that the abandoned apartment building at 9662 82 ave has finally been demolished, down to the foundation so far. The renders look promising, even though there is no retail component.

    Anyone know whats going on with that medical building they were suppose to build in that ugly looking empty lot by 99th? Completion was suppose to be for end of 2017 first quarter of 2018. But nothing but bleakness there so far.

    Well, I know that it had a giant pile of dirt on it, and the city had some problems with the owner of the lot over the dirt. I believe it went to court, at least that was the direction it was going when I spoke to someone at the city about the dirt pile. I'm guessing someone could pull the title and then search court records for the name of the company that owns it and find out what happened with it.

    Oh, wait... do you mean the empty lot that used to be the Shell station (100 st), or the empty lot that's on 99 st, just south of Whyte Ave? I'm guessing the Shell lot, which is where the pile of dirt was.

    Thanks Gord yeah the old shell lot, I live next to it is why i'm anxious to see it developed. Hopefully it doesn't stay long in court limbo.

    So, an update on this property...

    It went to council and was approved as 6 storeys with ground floor retail. Nothing has progressed since. The property wasn’t taken care of over the winter; no snow was cleared, and a ton of gravel was dumped down when I complained about the lack of snow clearing. Since they didn’t bother cleaning the gravel up, I took a broom and brushed it aside earlier in the week. There are a number of elderly people with walkers that go along there, and it wasn’t safe or fun for them to walk on.

    I’ve also learned that they’re asking for it to be rezoned again, this time as a 6 storey building, plus half a storey and shared amenity area on the roof, but without retail. This is extremely disappointing. They were allowed to build a 4 storey building when they bought the property. They had it rezoned to 6 with retail. I view the retail space as being a fair deal to get the extra 2 storeys. Now they want more, while also giving up the retail. What’s in it for the community? They’ve been ****** community members so far, not bothering to take care of the property through the winter, and now they’re asking for more, while offering noting in return. They’ve also hired consultants for the rezoning.

    In other news, the building that’s going in further up 99 st (90 Ave? 91?) actually wants to ADD ground floor retail to it.

    I was wondering what is going on with this site as I passed it yesterday. Retail on the ground floor would be ideal, but I want to see this site filled, so I would concede. Then again, across from my building, The Trax is out of the way, yet it will have ground floor retail.

    The issue is that if you just concede then that becomes the new norm - 6 storeys, no retail. Up until this point everything built around there (99 st and Whyte Ave) has been 4 storeys (with the exception of the Bateman towers).

    No, not really. That’s up to the person who decided to buy land where they could only build a 4 storey building on. Because the market is soft doesn’t mean the community needs to give something up in order to make a developer happy with their land purchase.

    Retail would have been nice, but it would be so much nicer to have that instead of the lot.

    The area is not zoned for 6 storeys, it’s zoned for 4. When they bought the land they could only build a 4 storey building on it.

    Say8ng that something is better than an empty lot just encourages developers to buy land and let it deteriorate until it’s an eyesore so the community is happy that something is built on it. That’s NOT how development should be approached.

    6.5 storeys is completely abnormal for the area.

    Stick up the figh Gord! Retaining retail and enhancing it along 99st is greatly needed for those communities, future city building, and healthy walkable community. Retail will greately serve a growing and more-dense area around 99st.

    Disagree. Not every building has to have retail, and the height is just fine for the area.

    Usually why city and community building is in for the long haul and try to trump short term gains. We get bit on City policy all the time but I get the long game aspect of it and embrace it. All for them to ask for another rezoning, but the first rezoning was a great community contribution. The latest render does not add to the street as community. We need better city policy on ground floor interaction that is decades overdue.

    Working in the development community of course all residential is easier than taking a chance on retail on 99st. But easier isn't better in the grander scheme of community and city building.

    Well, for me, for this location, design supersedes the retail component. In terms of the rendering, it’s banal.

    I'd argue 99st north of Whyte was probably the most successful main street retail strip on a major corridor in the city until some of it was lost to redevelopment.

    Somehow it had a mix of neighborhood and destination local shops that fronted one of the busiest commuter corridors with no buffer. Hopefully, it continues to expand and what was lost is replaced in multiples.

    Are you referring to a project massive in comparison? Apples and oranges.

    *Sigh* No, I’m obviously not talking about the Bateman towers.

    There’s a building that was approved for 99 st and 90 Ave that was approved, and will be going back to council because they’re interested in adding retail to the project.

    Hmmm, right across from the Bateman project? Do you not think it is a coincidence that the developer is seeking a change based on this particular location, now that there is movement on the Bateman project? He will feed off the Bateman project. Seriously, give your head a shake man. Zoning must be flexible in certain cases, and the project at 99th and 83rd does NOT need retail just because the height is being bumped up.

    The Bateman Towers were already approved before this other building was ever proposed. I don't think you pay as much attention to the projects in the area as you think you do.

    Read man. The movement of the Bateman towers is why the developer of the other project is going back to council. If the Bateman project was not proceeding, I guarantee the other developer would have proceeded without retail.

    And who said I was an authoritative figure on construction in my area?

    *Sigh* As I said, the Bateman tower was already completely, 100% approved (April 9, 2018 ) BEFORE there was ANY talk about the property At 99st and 90 Ave being developed (September, 2018 ), and since the INITIAL TALK of that project, I’ve heard it has been REVISED to INCLUDE RETAIL.

    I don’t know how much more clear I can make it.

    Anyway, I’m done discussing this with you. You’re having a hard time following along, and we disagree whether the 83 ave/99 st building should have retail, so there’s not much point in continuing this discussion.
