Thanks for that link SaskE30 really makes it easy, read alot of the comments, nice o hear that there are others out there that want change that are ready to help slow down the possible minority making decisions for the majority. Hopefully these will get built and the next developments will be on the west side where zoning may be easier.

I was in Diefenbaker Park the other day for some activities and man, is that place a major earth moving project!!! The new Optimist Winter Park development has tons of heavy equipment and mounds of dirt being move, excavated and piled high!

It would be great for one you "photo bloggers" to go by and take some pics and post to here. It is a pretty impressive construction site at the moment!

The new skylights at Midtown have been revealed, as well as glass panels on the 2nd floor around the concourse edges.

Everything is looking great. Very sleek and modern.

I find it interesting that the developer decided to increase the cost by adding another floor before he was able to find a single tenant... seems like an unnecessary risk for where the market is it. He could have easily done a similar design and saved millions, likely, without adding a floor. I mean, I'm not complaining. I just find it interesting.

thoughts on having manitoba and saskatchewan as their own category? that way the threads can be little more organized. I think theres enough talk in this province now where the threads for sask are active enough. One of the winnipeg guys mentioned it and i always had this idea on my mind for a while now.

being discussed in the odd thread titled " any women here on this forum ". if its something you guys want ill pitch it to the other mods and we can probably make it happen. IMO id like it divided, winnipeg is active enough as is, and can use their own Manitoba category.

Add my vote to separate them--I don't ever look at the Winnipeg/Manitoba threads so not having to sort through/ignore those would be nice. Others might have different habits of course though.

I thought Skyscraperpage wouldn't allow separation in the past due to insufficient activity.

Personally I like the MB/SK thread in one, but because I have Winnipeg roots and now live in SK. I can see why others would prefer to separate the two. I would be less likely to know what's going in in Wpg and MB if the threads were separate.

good points, even if the manitoba section had the main winnipeg ones as "sticky" threads so they are always up front?

not a for sure thing that we will seperate, but it was just mentioned by a forumer, and on my mind for a bit too.

I probably would just not go the the MB section regularly like I would for the SK one.

I don't click into the MB/Winnipeg posts very often, but I think it is fine to leave as is until we have maybe more the 5 major projects on the go at once here!

But really...makes no diff to me.....

I think we should combine the three prairie provinces rather then separate anyone

Looking at your picture echoes it would sure look sweet if they built the future tower on the left, especially if it was at least as high as saskatoon square, river quarry will fit in nicely, maybe city hall will take some space in it.
