    not that there's anything "wrong" with basic but basic certainly doesn't have to be the defining factor in food courts any more than streetscapes or lobbies or condominiums or automobiles or anything else for that matter.

    on the other hand, recognizing and accepting "basic" as a very definition of anything is both an edmonton thing and one of the bigger things that edmonton needs to move past.

    You're missing out. ATB Place food court is one of the nicest places to eat lunch downtown. Clean, not too noisy, loads of natural light. If they every get the courtyard figured out they'll be cooking with gas.

    I think the Collosseum is a bit too open-air and protected by authorities - and it's in Rome.

    The Coliseum here, however, is too far from much of anything useful to be viable as a food court.

    I noticed the for lease sign from CBRE has come down at 10190 104 Street in the historic Metals Limited building. Noticed a ladder set up in one of the windows. Anyone know what is going on?

    So apparently Earth's General's space on 104th street is going to be some sort of donair/kebab restaurant. Not sure if it's quick service or sit down. Not thrilled with that, if only because I'd have much preferred some actual retail on the street as opposed to food/bev, and that's one of the bigger spaces on the street. Plus it will also directly interfere with my New Year's resolution when I start eating donairs five times a week.

    A donair shop seems like a no-brainer for right smack in the middle of our designated & approved Purple Flag nightlife zone...

    Given the size of the space, I doubt it's just a "shop". It's most likely an actual restaurant, I would think.

    Is that space being divided up for it? Curious why the Fox bays weren't chosen instead. Also give me a good shawarma and I'll keep visiting.

    It seems like an awfully big space for quick-service, so I bet this is a sit-down restaurant. I agree on the retail, but a quality donair place would really not go amiss in that location. It's great to hear that it's not staying empty for long, despite the high rent there.

What braniac came up with we need more shopping and bars, it's just so dull dull dull. What kind of vanilla yuppy blog is this?

    I think you've got it all wrong, cause yer barking up the wrong city. I dont think thats who we are. I've said it before, besides eating and drinking (booze or coffee), I really find Edmontonians are go home and stay home people. I've often heard people say Edmonton is dull, like a big small town. Or refer to it as Deadmonton. Interesting cities, with variety of things to do, with both accessible nature and fun things to do attracts fun outgoing people (Van, Cal and even some small towns). The energy in those cities is awesome and I dont find any of that energy here, besides population growth, which doesnt really count as energy. I think this city is a reflection of what its putting in to those types of activities. No offense 1 million people. This is anonymous right?

    Does anyone agree at all? I realize that statement wont be true of absolutely everyone so please dont pick it apart too much but havn't you felt of heard any of that before? How do we change that? Is it really just with trendier shopping and more bars? I've been to many of the bars in Edmonton, and I can't say as those are the shining examples of people I want to get to know. No yes?
    Everyone has a right to an opinion, and one shouldn't get their heads bitten off. If i was you, in one ear and out the other. Regarding your statement that Edmonton is boring then explain what you have done in Calgary that seems that much better. They brag about Banff, yet every time I visit friends there, i asked them when their last visit to Banff was? The response I got was, " I don't remember; I'm too busy working paying off bills." Calgary has the same restaurants and bars. Vancouver, most people I know want to get out of that city as they can't afford to live their. So, how much better are these cities?

    So I do wonder though. What other things/businesses/activities in the core and elsewhere in the city can be made to have Edmonton stand out more and more?

    Start condo projects for family settings. If you want a tree to successfully grow and make that forest flourish, you have to plant the seeds. Take a block, eradicate the backalley concept so that can become the playground/back yards for kids then surround it with living structures with highrises. The entire podium will wrap around that playground, so that only residence and their guests are privy to entree. Katz if you listening!

    And speaking of - a donair place opening in the former Quiznos place on Jasper Ave at 101 St.

    Also, looks like some popup shop has opened in the former Mongolie Grill at Jasper & 109 St.

    Well placed to be sure.

    Top_Dawg figgers it will be most convenient for the transients that wander daily between Kelly's and The Dopeside.

    They can duck in the alley and pick up their crack or blow from the back door of the donair shop as they stagger between the two.

    I can't wait for Dynalife to move out of their current location. The fact that they occupy prime retail space creates a massive deadzone in this area. The superlab being built by the ab gov on the south campus lands that will see dynalife to leave this podium will bring life back to this dead street/dead area of downtown. It will also give AIMCO a chance to do something more with this building. I think they were tied up having dynalife lease this property, unable to bring forward a vision they have had for a long time for "manulife 2"

    Wake me up when I can see skyscrapers or something like that.

    More retail opportunities downtown coming soon!

    Agreed. If it gives an incentive to AIMCO to do something engaging with such a prominent location, I'm for it. And, while I'm generally supportive of seeing employment stay DT, I'm at least happy that the superlab will be close to good transit connections and still relatively central, even if it causes tears for Scott McKeen.

    ^Yep.

    This is not a remote, isolated location that we're talking about. It's central, next to transit and next to a bunch of other higher-impact uses that aren't going anywhere. Fewer downtown employees supporting downtown services is too bad but I don't see that space staying vacant too long... and current vacant space will have a few good years to absorb before then.

    102 street could and should look totally different in 5 years. KPMG and Dynalife moving out of their respective podiums will be a good thing. Although I do feel some concern that there needs to be a large catalyst or anchor tenant to get things moving.

    I would think there's plenty of space for a department store in the Commerce Place podium now that KPMG, Board Room and the temporary food court are gone. Does anyone happen to know the sq ft available?

    As for Manulife 2, that used to be higher end retail and a food court until the Bay's closure pretty much killed it. Once the lab closes and there's no tower forthcoming, that could be another big retail space. However, they really should do something about the pedway access to the old Enbridge tower.

    The only "Department Store" of the 2 left in Canada that isn't downtown already is WalMart, and except for the old Zeller's leases they assumed, they prefer to own the land and building.

    ^ I was thinking more Simons, Saks or Nordstrom. Granted those are slim chances, but hey stranger things have happened!
    There's also a more flagship-level Bay or a bigger Holt as possibles.

    That's why I was wondering about square footage in both buildings.

    We may to wait for another oil boom to be considered worth the investment by those higher-end stores, the only ones that seem to care about being downtown, and all in competition with each other for a pot of "riches" that just doesn't seem to be there without an oil boom to fund it.

    My thoughts: relocate Centre High into the Dyna Life spaces.

    Open up the boardwalk building for food markets, cafes and a year-round farmers market.

    Maybe even something like that market33 photo inside the boardwalk building.

    Unless you have a real high-calibre retailer/chain in the DynaLife space, it will not be able to draw the people down the streets it currently faces. It's just too sterile on the Dynalife side of the road as well as the opposing sides.

    FINALLY found this. I wonder what it would be like today if it had been built.

    The whole document is an interesting read. Current urban development ideas have been around longer than many people might think. (Except, not a single mention of bicycles back then.)

    I didn't find anything on bikes/bike routes until 79 or 88 I believe, can't recall now. But they were 'bikeways' around the perimeter, not as we use or see them now.

    Bingo. Moving people out without backfill is not a positive thing.
    You can't get backfill until you move the lab out though. The space the lab used will need to be fitted back to it's regular designed purpose - a podium with retail. Hopefully once Dynalife moves out in the next few years (some like IanO seem to think this will happen overnight by his murder-cries), AIMCO has something lined up, or maybe a even another tower! Wouldn't that be swell. Dynalife moves out just in time for the next boom cycle, AIMCO builds a tower, IanO fulfills a wetdream. Too bad he can't see beyond today.

    I hope they have similar success there as they do with Dorinku (same folks, right?). That corner needs to be bumpin.

    London Drugs reno looks close to being done - I think. The inside has completely opened up except for the east entrance and where the old tills are. I thought renos were continuing until May, though I'm guessing there's more to be done in the old cosmetics section.

    ^I don't understand it either. I live pretty close by, so it's not inconvenient for me... but there's also a Canada Post retail outlet just steps away, but I have never had a parcel available for pick-up there, ever.

    Yeah, especially since there are Canada Post outlets at both the Shoppers at City Centre and Rexall on 108 Street.

    Most of my Canada Post parcel pickups are at the Rexall at Jasper/108 St.

    The real "pits" was until a year or so ago those of us at the TEN (and I presume, because they're on the same block, Icons & Century) typically had to pick up packages from the "Dispensary" in the Standard Life bldg 10405 Jasper

    While most outlets (typ suburban or Rexall on 8th) were open 8-8 M-F and maybe 10-5 Sat & Sun, the Std Life location had the "user friendly" hours of...

    8:30-5:00 M-F and CLOSED Sat & Sun !

    IOW... your employer better be very understanding.

    Certainly reinforced the "Canada Post doesn't care" belief in many of us...

    I tried a number of avenues of protest and, while I doubt I had much to do with it, finally they changed the typical default location to Rexall on 108.

    ^^ Definitely if you're in a condo (tower or otherwise) get Canada Post to place a drop box in your lobby.

    They'll do it for for free and it's open 24/7.

    Those are great, but it doesn't solve the problem if you're being slapped with duties & taxes on a particular parcel -- then you have to pick it up from a retail outlet.

    I noticed that the Alibi nightclub is finally open at Jasper/100 St, or at least there's a sign out front that says as such.

    Funny how -15 in February tends to thin out the crowds. A lot of people here tend to hibernate on those days or go to places where less walking outside is required. If you want to see busting downtown here, try July 1st.

    truth. when I'm in vancouver and want to meet up with locals downtown, they'll typically transit downtown with no qualms.
    when I'm in Edmonton downtown and want others to join me, no one wants to drive downtown or take transit downtown.

    Albeit there's some misplaced misconception. Parking in our downtown is quite easy after hours on non-event nights. It's easier to park downtown on those nights than it is in some of the newer-tightly-packed suburbs imho...and a very frustrating process trying to visit anyone out there when there's a seasonal parking ban on.

    It has density and ok transit. Point being that parking is NOT the reason big box are or are not here.
