Wasn't there just a blurb about prices falling a bit in 'Toon? These guys want to get on the peak, I imagine. NTL, it'll be a nice corner someday. 6.2 though with all the other plots available seems high but then what the hey, it's summer, and a good time for fishing!

There do seem to be some good places to live downtown: http://www.ovlix.com/ca/property/dO8...toon-SK-S7K7A9

Almost 1000sqft totally reno'd, great view underground parking and under 350,000. Drive into your bat cave and up to your nest. Totally safe and...better than the burbs?>)

On City Council's agenda this Wednesday is consideration of Dream Development's concept for the Brighton Village Centre:

It's impressive that they hired KPMB Architects to do the design. This is the same Toronto firm that designed the Remai Modern.

what about transit

[QUOTE=Echoes;7874093]On City Council's agenda this Wednesday is consideration of Dream Development's concept for the Brighton Village Centre:

There appears to be no transit stops or a transit station included in this design.

Export Development Canada opening a new office in Saskatoon. http://markets.businessinsider.com/n...-office-479814


This is exactly what would go into the "World Trade Center". Doesn't say where it is going though, guess we'll assume it'll be one of their tenants. Would be a surprise if it's in the River Landing Tower.

On a side note, law firm MLT is the first tenant announced for River Landing 1 Tower, I think they're at the top level with EY?
http://thestarphoenix.com/news/local...g-office-tower

They're currently in the Saskatoon Square building, I've heard they've contacted all the tenants in that tower as it is apparently very hot in the summer and uber cold in the winter, maybe we'll see a very large upgrade there in the future.

^ Thanks for sharing the link. I suspect that the East Tower will fill up mostly (if not completely) by poaching existing tenants from older downtown buildings.

It's not a bad thing. It forces the older buildings to adapt, upgrade, and become competitive again.

I've heard about the climatic issues at Saskatoon Square too.

Upon a quick search, apparently, Saskatoon is the only major western city without an EDC office.

According to this map, there is a BRT station planned for the far southeast corner of Brighton.

The article about the River Landing tenant states:

Quote:
A news release says a public plaza will be built at the same time as the first office tower and will be ready for public access soon after the office tower is completed.
Can anyone find this news release? I'm surprised -- I thought the plaza was going to be the last thing to be completed. Good news if true.

"Construction of the public plaza will coincide with delivery of the East Tower and will be accessible to the public soon after the East Tower is completed." https://www.greystone.ca/realestate/...river-landing/

I was under the impression that the plaza would be the last part as well

I am not sure that was a well researched/written report as it also made it sound like the office tower was going to be $300 million (which would be the TOTAL cost of River Landing development....and even that they believe they can come under now because of current reduced costs of construction).

This is looking at it from roughly the opposite direction of the below rendering. The angled jut-out is where the pedway from the Ag Building will connect in.

Does anyone know who the private partners are for the new P3 schools in Saskatoon?

Be interesting to know which private enterprises are involved.

They've knocked down an entire block on the north side of 22nd. Construction fence up saying future home of Taco Bell. Anyone have any idea of what's going in there or what type of building is going up. My guess is it'll just be a strip mall or something.

If you're like me and you've always hated the tacky blue that the light standards and street furniture on 2nd Ave are painted, then you may be relieved - even ecstatic - to learn that the City is painting them black.

While I've only noticed the light poles to be getting the treatment so far, I assume this will be extended to the entire regimen of blue on the street.



It's amazing to see the instant modernization of the streetscape that it introduces. A small urban design detail with big impact.

Let's hope that the City has learned from their 1990s flirtation with colour in their streetscaping, all of which has not aged well. (I'm looking at you too, 22nd Street "red").

On the Brighton Village Centre plan by "Dream" developments: Can we see a balanced portfolio for the other 10 months of the year? There's not a single winter image. Urban sprawl dressed like Cali. No one's going to walk anywhere in that development and they're poaching office space, too! And it's up for debate! What direction does the new mayor seem to be going in? Will the sticks at least have far greater tax burdens than the core? Or better, a proximity algorithm between where you live and where you work and your means of transportation. That seems like the future ticket, Watson! Naw, that's not fair at all. Just stop subsidies completely. That's the real ticket.

Black is classic for street posts and goes with anything. Good upgrade over the clown balloons, metaphorically speaking.
