Thanks....I knew Prairie Sun was a potential lease, just wondering when the build will actually start, but I guess if their plan was to move in this winter, the developers better get cracking on construction!

Consensus seems to be on parking lot between Holiday Inn and Hilton Garden. I would have liked to have seen a location bridging Broadway, Downtown and Riversdale, but that kind of land does not exist...so, my vote would be for the lot across from TCUP, as well. Man....I hope this process starts sooner then later as I am sure it would be a 5 to 10 year thing from start to finish.

Interesting reference page.....good memories.

Man what a great shot that is of River Landing from the East Side of the river. The trees and greenery are also really starting to fill out and mature around that area. It's going to look amazing when it's all completed.

Traffic Bridge

Checking the construction camera on the south end of the Traffic Bridge every morning. Things seem to move very slowly. Not much visible change.

Browsing an agenda for an upcoming city committee, and there is a report regarding tax incentives for Midtown's redevelopment of the Sears space. The report describes the planned changes:



It also includes some floor plans and renderings (not great quality):



I'm seeing what looks to be the food court moved to the 2nd floor as rumoured. Also some pretty significant changes to the exterior and lots of glazing added.

That would be a massive improvement to the mall, if they proceed with plans similar to what has been shared as renderings in the document! Good find Echoes....

The dark building in the third image reminds me of a recent MEC store constructed in Kitchener. Might be, might not be, just a guess if they have designed for clients already.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/kitche...ener-1.4110482

Looks like that structure is on the back of the mall where the food court entrance is now. Has a decent footprint as well.

Good eye as well! Looks just like the Edmonton South one too:

Mark Rosentraub, who is speaking at TCU today, was on the CTV morning news talking about a downtown arena--making lots of sense :

Hopefully this goes to the right video... https://saskatoon.ctvnews.ca/video?c...ylistPageNum=1

There was an article about him as well:

Good eye on the MEC store. High visibility from Idylwyld... makes sense.

If anyone remembers, North Prairie applied for a tax abatement for a 5 story condo next to Shangri La in City Park early this year. On their website they've got a post about Opus Lofts coming soon! That's exciting that it looks like it's going to be a higher end development as that street needs it... before I bought a condo on 5th Ave North downtown I was looking at one on 4th in City Park and it is kinda scary on that street...

There's a very good article on the CNN website talking about the Joni tribute coming up. More Great exposure for Saskatoon and pretty close to being factual.


https://edition.cnn.com/travel/artic...ada/index.html

Cheers, Saskatoon!

Oops... I forgot: Congrats to the Rush and Saskatoon! You're now (a city of) Champions! And a downtown arena, well, what can you say? Just an awesome place and injection of spirit.

It's so fantastic that you guys finally got rid of Atch, and especially Dayday, a guy who voted down the new gallery. New blood and greater exposure will give the local bigots Joni talks about no place to hide! I know a dude down the street from you who thinks every Indian is rich and the only reason he or she's bumming a smoke from you is because he or she's a lazy SOB. Embrace the hate and these guys can be great, just like anybody else if they're given the chance.

Only really needed the first two sentences in that "construction" rant, but ok.
