Looks impressive. I guess this helps to explain why the City is expanding and building new interchanges along the 201 in the N.W.

In the pics he tweeted nobody appeared to be wearing masks and certainly not social distancing!

I wonder what time frame those 5,000 jobs will materialize in.

Curious how far along Airdrie will be once this is filled in.

I hope there is a reasonable about of medium density in there - that's a lot of land.

The jobs will be created over however long it takes to fully develop. No doubt it'll be decades.

The entire Glacier Ridge area is supposed to have 58,800 residents and 10,900 jobs. There's supposed to a minimum of 50 units/hectare. No idea if that's good or not.

What the heck is that? A look at new structures popping up around Calgary

Living in a spread-out city like Calgary means you can go months, sometimes years, without seeing new buildings in certain parts of town. Or, you might have recently noticed a new structure sprouting up along one of your regular routes and wondered, “What the heck is that?”

Well, wonder no more. Postmedia Calgary photographers hit the road this week to capture images of some of the more recent structures changing the streets and skyline of yyc.

For a new community it's not a lot of land - it's only a quarter section as things currently stand unless they'll be developing more than that in the future. Most new communities are easily 3-4 times that size in land area, even Crestmont will eventually be built out to at least 3 quarter sections.

Edit, further snooping reveals that Ambleton appears to be community D of the Glacier Ridge plan and community D will eventually be a full section of land which is comparable to most other new communities.

As far as Airdrie, Livingston and Carrinton are closer and there's still a lot of space between those two communities and Airdrie.

With respect to 5,000 private sector jobs being created - that's all political mumbo jumbo. I'd be an example of a trade that might happen to be working in such a community but it's not like a new job has been created for me as it's just another locale that I might have to report to - no different than the multitudes of other communities both within Calgary and outside of Calgary that I work in or will work in.

I really like the "West Village tower #1....Would love to see tower #2, 8-10 stories taller!
Unfortunately, I've heard it's going to be the same height as #1

If that's across the entire area, in my view that's not bad. If they discounted for non-residential areas (because there are a lot of them) then the number doesn't mean much.
