Yes, in the form of depending on Chinese investors:

Lam said it’s too early to know how much money would need to be raised from investors, but he’s confident he can find investors in Vancouver and China. Lam, Yan and Tony Ding met with Mayor Charlie Clark a year ago to express their interest in pursuing projects in the Saskatoon region.

A very good point. How laughably inept!

This is par for the course. Haha. Have you worked with an architect before? They draw, then the engineers remind them how to make it real.

That includes civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers reminding: 1. The building needs to be anchored to the ground, 2. The building needs a “skeleton”, 3. The ceiling space should be deep enough for plumbing thet slopes!, and 4. The the building needs a room to house mechanical and electrical equipment.

And this happens every single building.

They are the dreamers... but that’s ok, it’s gotta start with a dream of some sort. But I agree, hopefully it starts with someone else’s dream in this case!

Sorry I should give the appropriate credits; “the engineers make it real ‘in theory’”. It’s the contractors that “make it real”!

Anyone know if River Quarry found a tenant? From what I hear we haven’t incentivized a single suburban tenant to come downtown with all of this redevelopment... I think it’s time for a tax incentive to move downtown.

On a side note BASF was looking to move from Mississauga to Saskatoon and the government never offered a good enough incentive or had anyone from Saskatoon working on their interest in moving here vs Calgary. I hate our government... we’ve lost out on so many developments the last decade. https://calgaryherald.com/business/l...ers-to-calgary

Crap....how does Saskatoon with College of Agriculture and Synchotron and all things agriculture not come out on top of consideration for a move by BASF. I have no idea what the back story on this may be, but I truly hope we were aggressive in trying to lure them to Saskatoon.

They were probably looking for some juicy tax breaks and if so, its best Saskatoon didn't get into such a bidding war. But who knows.

We also have a very large existing BASF office here in the north end larger than Calgary’s. This is the exact same as when we lost Roquette’s new pulse processor to Manitoba when MB doESNT even grow peas... not to get political but... yea we’re losing out on everything lately.

But I thought now that the SaskParty was the party of business and that now that they are in power, every business would want to move here...........oh wait. I guess that might not be the case....

Sure but they are not into direct subsidies. They will offer general incentives (usually tax relief) available to anyone but will "not pick winners and losers". I agree with this policy generally but it is easily manipulated.
