WTF? Please explain the relevance. Is Saskatoon really just one ball in the sack of Saskatchewan?
My bad....I meant Urban Capital....not Capital Pointe...I can understand your confusion...guess I had been looking at the exciting updates on Capital Pointe and they were on my mind.

As Urban Capital is the supposed same developer for Riverlanding and the Broadway site, I was wondering how sales of Riverlanding might impact Broadway project.

Hope I have clarified and cleared the air....

^^^Hey prairieguy! I got ya now. It makes sense. I was checking out the thread about 4am my time and missed your "pointe". I've also been reading the insert 'wtf' a lot, and threw one in there myself, even though I hate it. I'd do a little edit but it's already been quoted, so there you go. (Although I still kind of like the sack line;>) You can call off the pit bulls, Saskatoon. I'll be good.

Despite your typo i would bet that Capital Pointe, and the Banks, and others, do factor into Urban Capital's decision making (even if just a tiny bit). E.g., they can learn from other's experiences. Location is important and personally I would love a prime unit in 1RL but if I were a Regina resident I would not consider CP (its other troubles notwithstanding). I was a little surprised that Urban Capital chose Broadway and not the Farmers Market for their next project, but it hindsight, I think they they chose wisely, although I would love to see River Landing fill in.

If there are indeed 10-15 units still available in 1RL, I am assuming (hoping) that these are the ones that are a really tough sell (e.g. fishbowl, limited view, etc) and that demand for the prime units has been good. To be honest I think the design of 1RL could have been a bit better, to minimize the "poor" units. But, so far, its simple, clean lines look good next to the gallery.

I think there is demand for downtown/urban living as long as the right product is available.

^^^^ First siding on the condo. It couldn't be much blacker. I think it looks pretty good in person. Hopefully it does not fade over time.



^^^^ Looks like some landscaping fabric going in.



^^^^ From the boathouse.

It's the drainage membrane being installed as part of the foundation waterproofing system. The facing layer is very much like landscape fabric - it goes over a plastic sheet with "nubs" that provide a drainage channel. There is also filter fabric around the underslab drainage system.

^^^^ The horizontal gray boom visible at the top of the excavation (by the base of the tower crane) was being used to spread sand/gravel over the drainage fabric. There was a line-up of large trucks feeding the hopper. One of them is visible by the bridge. I expect we'll see the first floor slab poured soon. I'm not sure whats up with that "wall" that is visible just to the left of the near tower crane.



^^^^ This image might be a little deceiving. In fact the ramp is now mostly gone... there is a steep "wall" just to the right of the upper excavator. I think that the remaining equipment in the hole will have to be lifted out. Unfortunately its difficult to get good pictures as there are two fences surrounding the site.

This project is also so important to visiting tourists to the new museum. (I'll never spell it 'cause I'm not good at stuttering.) A lot of people are coming from bigger cities and I hope they feel there's a vibe downtown. This surely helps them feel that they're not in the middle of nowhere and especially in summer, they're going to love this town! Now FO and go see Deadpool2>)oops, off topic!
