Marcello's is terrible. Lukewarm, bland food that is the same thing every single day. Not to mention that 50% of their buffet is cheap starches (noodles, rice, potatoes) and the vegetables/meat they do have are all overcooked and bland.

I would rather eat food from M&M Meat Shops.

^ Count me in as not a fan of Marcello's. Their restaurant is a pleasant place to sit (well, the one on Portage is), but yeah, the food is basically hospital cafeteria calibre. Honestly, I find Subway more satisfying and less expensive. I don't understand how they attract so many people...

Especially when there are several great little lunch spots on Graham.

I am curious how many units have been sold at this point. I hope this tower is constructed, and the spin-off developments are plenty.

At least from memory, I might be out some though.

A for Marcello's, they do a spot of job of warming up food from the Sysco truck.

I heard that when the return of the Jets was announced, a number of building owners near MTS Centre priced the "Jets affect" into any newly signed leases. This then absorbed basically any gain that a tenant stood to make from the NHL, and worse it was fixed into the lease cost so when the league went on strike people still needed to pay the Jets tax.

Add in that the SHED seems to heavily favour a limited group of people causing those wanting to compete to be at a disadvantage. It gets further compounded when one operating group controls leases or even more of the operations for at least six different restaurants/bars in the arena area. Sure you might be able to try and crack that market but chances are you will be further away and trying to break into a new market.

That said, it will be interesting to see what SkyCity is able to add to the downtown. Part of the original plan seemed to hint at the type of restaurant/pub type of place that would appeal to the MTS Centre hockey/event crowd. It is definitely a crowded space but that there are also well known brands that have yet to land in the city which could make in-roads in that market, Yard House comes to mind. Ye's would be another one that would break from the "beer and burgers" theme but with the Longboat affiliation seems more likely to land in one of their properties.

The more intimate, pub-style establishments the better IMO, as I prefer those. Yes, a couple of well-known, popular branded restaurants would appeal to many other people, so the addition of those types would be welcomed too. The Power & Light District is progressing beautifully, and the SHED could become similar:

I would say these kinds of posts specifically relating to restaurants belong in the restaurant thread and not here, no?

I guess this is an example of where that whole "moderation" thing would come into play.

True North has also assumed control of booking at the Garrick Centre... so they pretty much have the market cornered now on any size of show. This week something planned at MTS barely sold any tix (can't remember what) so day of they moved it to The Burt.

Also Yellow Dog is a great example of a "Jets Crowd" place thats small and local. More plz.

Sorry Pinus.

I could have easily included retail outlets, etc. We are discussing developments. Thanks for the concern though.

It does have some direct relevance to SkyCity Centre since they purposed one or more units at ground level for restaurant space. It will be interesting to see if that plan holds through to construction, how successful they are at lining up restaurant tenants and the type of food they offer. I know in my own travels and I have been past a couple different Yard House locations and they always seem to be packed, regardless of where or when I look. The wide selection of beers on tap and pub style food would likely be a huge hit with the MTS Centre traffic and be able to hold its own on the office lunch hour crowd.

True, it does indeed.

Thanks for thanking me for my "concern"; I was only point it out since there is now a whole thread inquiring about new modeators joining the Mansask forum, and that "off topic conversations in threads" are an issue in the Winnipeg threads.

Anyways, I've said my peace.

By my count that's 141 circles, with another 3 in the bottom on the "T" row. T is Terrace level. So 144 total units with circles.

Not sure what the colours mean. There's 10 blue and 7 yellow. 1 green as well.

A lot of 1 bedroom and 1 bedroom + study/den.

Still a good number of sales. Could get a 20 storey tower built on that alone.

Blue may be combo suites? Seems they come in pairs. Not sure.

Edit:

Yeah I think blue is combo suites. The suites noted are side by side for the two lower levels, 35 and 37.

What's the magic number to get this thing built then?

Well they're sitting somewhere around 35%-40% units sold. But they're mostly the smaller, cheaper units. Typically sales need to be some around 60%-70% I believe. All depends on the lending agreements I think. But I'm not an expert.
