Not to take any appreciation away from this project as it's amazing for the area, but with the redevelopment of the Great West Metal building and the Duncan arena lot it makes you wonder what can become of the grand Eaton warehouse building in between them sometime in the future.

That's $333k per unit for construction. What's the selling price? Must be $400k plus per unit.

Yes, that building has enormous potential for redevelopment.

Looks decent. But why are developers here obsessed with corrugated metal sheets?

As mentioned before the Eaton Warehouse is fully occupied, so there's no imminent pressure to redevelop it, but I agree it could be a showstopper once we reach a tipping point here.

Would love to see the garage doors opened up to make retail spaces, and put a raised sidewalk along both sides so you can enter at an even level. Seen quite a few similar developments in other cities – the Pearl District in Portland comes to mind, something like the Keen Garage. Even looking at a local example, long term plans for the space under the rail tracks at The Forks would work great here. Not sure if an entire city block of office space would be needed here, so second storey would make great residential.

There's no pressure, but as with GW Metals, we could get to a point where the site holds considerably more value as commercial or residential space than the current light industrial uses going on in there.

I think that the building will turn out much uglier than the renderings.

And think that it was ugly to begin with.

City should wait on final approval til first Pumphouse building is done and if the cladding turns out as heinous as we all think it will, ban it from the Exchange.

I am ok with the design but the metal siding as a facade looks like recycled beer cans and it does nothing to enhance the beauty of the area. Even in white ,we could do better...Ugly! There are limited in any spots remaining so lets do it right! Some restrictions or guidelines please.

Duncan Arena thing stirs some thoughts. I know Duncan is not an ice rink. But at what point does the City build a downtown community centre with indoor ice sheet(s)?

Not even just to serve the downtown neighbourhoods, but the entire City. Ice time is always at a premium and a lot of the older rinks are shit. It would also be a nice feature for people who want to live downtown.

I'm talking like downtown, downtown.

Pioneer actually isn't tooo bad. I've been playing there for decades. But it's an old City rink and the ice length is short. This is one that needs replacement in the near future.

And not just an ice rink or two. Maybe some other rec opportunities for the locals. just a thought I suppose.

There are a lot of rinks near downtown (Winter Club, Pioneer on Logan, Notre Dame in Old St. Boniface), but none actually in downtown, besides MTS Centre.

A community rink downtown could be a great asset for people in the area as well as people around the city. Putting it by the Sport For Life Centre could be a good fit, or maybe just off Portage to serve the U of W area.

If we actually want people to live downtown and have a community connection, we need to provide services. Schools, gyms, community centre. All those things.

If the city is going to build a rink downtown, it'd make the most sense to put it at U of W – would serve the community around it really well. There's potential U of W would start a hockey program if they had a rink. More and more NHL players are coming through college every year, it's only a matter of time before that trickles up here. I'm sure there's lots of players who'd like to get an education while they play.
