It looks like a tall suburban office (residential) park.

But it's still good and a lot better than 99% of the shit rising these days in smaller cities and towns.

Impressive for Edmonton but overall it doesn't whooo me - just too much of a masterplan (a.k.a. subdivision)

^ It will be interesting to see how much transit use it actually generates. It doesn't look pedestrian friendly.

^it very much is....there is little to no road access into the centre. The whole purpose is to have it pedestrian orientated. The foreground is the LRT/Bus station connected to the development.

I love it. It steps out from the single tower projects and gives one of those business districts, like dubai. What will this include, retail?

I wish Tampa could do something like this.
