Again, not every block needs to be your urban oasis.

But they all can at least be better than that.

This makeover will result in a better-looking garage. It is still a win. If this were on Jasper, yeah, I would be pissed, but based on its location, it is acceptable to me.

Edmonton building looks a whole lot better. I'd say not a huge difference on the curtain wall, but the podium is much improved, eliminating that outdated angled glass roof and precast concrete square walls sticking out.

Proposed treatment to the parking garage will make that stretch more inviting. A little retail frontage would be great, but as Cold said, it might not be feasible.
