Haha....well I am happy with name change, but they must have done a rush job on the editing of their website page. "located at the top of Highpoint...." use to read "located at the top of the Broadway Bridge...." I am not sure where this mythical Highpoint entrance to Nutana is....

I am actually really surprised they changed the name...there must have been significant push back on the original "Broadway Bridge" name. But good for them for responding to the community!

I was no fan of "Broadway Bridge" but I don't like this much better... feels rushed and unimaginative. Believe it or not I actually feel like they tried for a "offbeat, cool, in-the-know" kind of vibe with the name "Broadway Bridge" (even though it was almost universally panned).

I created this thread but I assume a moderator must change its title (I don't see a way) so if any mod sees this, please change it to something more appropriate.

That's really funny. Must have just entered "Broadway Bridge" and used the "replace" function. No such thing as too much proofreading.

Yay....tennis nets up! I know what I will be doing this Friday!

Not to be too picky....but the view would actually be more from the top of the Broadway Bridge, but your photo still provides excellent perspective of the view!! and yes...beautiful.

We’ve taken note of the raging debate on a number of internet sites about the merits of naming our new Saskatoon project “Broadway Bridge”.

To be honest we had some internal debates as well. But what synched it for us was when someone told us that naming our building Broadway Bridge was like them coming to Toronto and naming a project “CN Tower”. Yup. Good point.

So welcome to our new name - “Highpoint”. BB, it was nice while it lasted.
They're listening, you guys.

That's great. Don't mind the new name, but even if the originally called the project "The Bridge" or "BB Tower" or "B2" that would have been better.

A friend of mine who is connected to this project confirmed to me that the idea of this is to be cheaper and appeal more to the younger crowd than RL#1. I would imagine floorplans will be released soon, given how they intend to begin selling at the end of May.

Although they were not specific, at the community input meeting for the project the question came up about pricing and the developers at that time said similar to No1 Riverlanding and emphasized the quality of material and design to be expected.

So...I am thinking it will be on par with No1 Riverlanding, but maybe the market has dictated a bit of a reduction in pricing. I guess we will know in a few weeks.....

As of a few days ago, the rendering of No1 Riverlanding has been removed from the 'sales trailor' and replaced with a rendering of Highpointe. I believe work is also progressing inside for their new sales centre.

I could see this being ready by months end for them to initiate their sales pitch. So curious to see what response will be. Like Ricopedra, I think this is a more attractive location then even No1 Riverlanding....right on Broadway, River, view of downtown skyline...may have to actually consider it!!

Broadway condo tower on track for $2.4M property tax break
Developers of $50M project apply to Saskatoon city hall program to develop vacant lots

PHIL TANK, SASKATOON STARPHOENIX
Updated: May 14, 2019


A Saskatoon city council committee unanimously endorsed a five-year tax break worth an estimated $2,365,350 for the 17-storey condo building planned for a vacant lot on Broadway Avenue just south of Spadina Crescent.

A City of Saskatoon report says the project received the maximum points a project can receive under a program designed to encourage building on vacant lots.

The $2.4-million abatement includes both municipal property taxes ($1.4 million) and the provincial education portion ($924,410).

Hey Ricpedra that's for a different condo, a 12 story one off 25th street not High Point condo.

^^I'm looking directly at it. It's a picture of Highpoint condos, but called, as before, Broadway Bridge. You mean I have to click on it to see the actual ad for some 12 story on 25th? How inventive! They're already using someone else's image. Good luck with that!

And I've got another burr in my saddle. Wyku seems to be making a wind joke, about which you could feel or hear, but the ad is about what you can see. I sense more prairie simpletons, the biggest obstacle to urban development, but let's be fair, get on a plane, see the world, come back to 'Toon and make it better. That's what's happening and putting you on the map NOW with all the great folks that left for the bright lights and came back for the comfort. That's why Saskatoon has such a great future. People keep coming back. And this place gives them a better option than a 2500sqft particleboard, chickenwire, stucco shack in the middle of a farmer's field for only $600,000. Damn, there I go again. Cheers, mates! Fill those rooms!

Bess means the comment you highlighted from my post....we were both discussing the project at Clarence and College....not Highpointe. But, the "calm prairie views" is kind of weird....maybe "expansive prairie views" or "prairie horizon views"....think they may need a local person on their marketing team! haha

Here's a recap for you

1) Escala - 7 floors - Meridian Developments - University Drive
2) River Terraces - 12 floors - North Prairie Developments - College & Clarence Ave.
3) High Point - 17 floors - Urban Capitol - Broadway Ave.

Hope this helps

It's the advertisement for Highpoint in the screen shot that Ricopedra was talking about.

It says "Broadway Bridge" in the logo in the bottom left corner.
