Exactly.

First post in this thread is from July 2016... par for the course for many developments 'round these parts.

I've been following Buffalo development for 20 years and it used to be like 80% of projects never got off the drawing/rendering board
People joke that city hall is so large because entire floors are dedicated to forgotten plans that were never followed through lol (of course, now in 2021 the proposal to completion ratio is much much better since both the city and Metro are growing per 2020 census)

My point is, every city has proposals that never see the light of day. Even Toronto!

There’s a project near where I live in Ottawa that’s had the for sale sign up for condos so long I don’t think you could buy a house in the worst neighbourhood of Gatineau for the price listed on that for sale sign (so, at least 10 years?)… I’m not sure if it’s actually cancelled yet or not.

Meanwhile in Niagara, the Niagara Health System has had a sign up advertising for the South Niagara hospital on the South end of Niagara Falls (Montrose Rd & Biggar/Lyons Creek Rd) near the border with Welland for at least 7-8 years.

The first sign and ribbon cutting ceremony was so long ago the sign got horribly faded and they had to erect a new sign and have ANOTHER ribbon cutting ceremony

Now they plan to break ground in 2022 and have the thing complete by Fall 2026, a full 12-13 years after the first ribbon cutting
