It's different--I'll give it that.
Whether it hurts to look at and give you a migraine if you stare at it for too long is a question we'll revisit once construction is complete.

Regardless of the design having a future LRT station at the base of your building is a pretty strong selling feature.

On Hold

The project has stalled, but new investors plan to relaunch it.

April, 2015 article:

EDMONTON — A stalled luxury condo development west of downtown could once again get off the ground, thanks to new ownership.

Beaverbrook Developments will be taking over the partially completed construction site on 142 Street and Stony Plain Road.

The plot of land was supposed to be the site of three luxury condo towers. But construction stopped more than a year ago, and the site has sat vacated for more a year.

The Glenora Skyline Development Corporation says it ran into legal and financial troubles, which lead to construction being stopped.

Troubled Glenora Skyline redevelopment approved by city

Quote:
The Skyline eyesore in west Edmonton is about to disappear.

The derelict construction site once known as the Glenora Skyline condo project is finally getting back on track, under new ownership and a new name.

InHouse — a branch of Beaverbrook Developments — has the green light to move ahead with its redevelopment plans for the abandoned site.

In a unanimous decision, Monday, city council approved rezoning of the site.

"A sigh of relief," Salima Kheraj, a principal with InHouse, said in an interview Wednesday on Edmonton AM. "It's a big milestone for us to be able to turn this project around."

The project, at Stony Plain Road and 142nd Street, has undergone a significant redesign.

The 3½-acre site is about to become home to West Block, three residential towers alongside a mix of town homes and commercial and retail space.

Construction of the first phase of the project, projected to cost over $50 million and due to begin in October, will turn the existing concrete structure into a luxury 16-storey tower with floor-to-ceiling windows, large terraces and views of the river valley.

The phase will also include a three-storey commercial building.

The base of each of the buildings will includes retail space centred on an urban square designed with landscaping and seating areas for passersby or patios.

I just want to let everyone know that the article posted above was made on March 16, 2016. I guess I didn't come across that article when it came out. Thanks for posting it Urbannizer!

On that note, I changed the title of this thread from 'ON HOLD' to 'approved'.
