i didnt think the office tower would need 2 cranes? i was going to think one of the "jib arms" would have an extra section or two added to cover the whole surface of the office tower.

Thanks Crisis.

You have to remember that the parkade extends quite a distance to the north and the west past the footprint of the office tower. Would be tough to cover everything with one crane, not to mention having increased production capacity with two cranes.

Decided to do my "weekly update" early this week... I don't want to run past there tomorrow if there is a storm.

Mar. 1 2018 Pictures:





^^^^ Today they were pouring the 20th floor.



^^^^ They've installed movable platforms on the south east and north east corners (which can also be seen in the previous photo). I think we're going to see some glazing soon.



^^^^ There was some dark-framed glass on the second floor (right above the truck). It was easy to see in person but it did not show up in the photo very well. Could it be some external glazing?



^^^^ When I ran past last Sunday they appeared to have a full crew on the parkade. All three excavators in the pit were in action! As Crisis mentioned, the other day they were installing piles just to the left of this picture. At the time I was wondering what was going on, but a crane base makes perfect sense.

Video | Check out the view from the 13th floor of the River Landing condo tower
17-storey hotel and 20-storey condo building are about half complete, says project manager

^ It would seem that the office tower is on a very aggressive timeline. This article states that the building is on a schedule to be ready for tenant fixturing by the 2nd quarter of 2019. That's just over a year from now.

Loving the updates alt centre!

Somebody remind me again - will there be a restaurant or other public space in the hotel or condo?

Will there be retail or restaurant in the office tower just underway?

I hope we dont get any cookie-cutter restaurants. Id rather see something brand new to saskatoon, especially for River Landing.

if every other western city is a roadmap for chain restaurants, we are very much lacking a Keg and a Joey downtown

I doubt Keg, as it is opening in Brighton....but yes, could see a Joey's. Would hope for a mix of a fine dining type restaurant with some decent casual dining/pub type options.

With the growth not being as fast as anticipated in that area I could see the Keg, save on foods and Motiom Fitness backing out - especially when all those amenities are fairly close in university heights and 8th... that’s the point of living in the suburbs isn’t it? Driving 10-20 minutes to everything? 😂

Given the Keg use to be downtown and moved out to 8th a few years ago. I would surprised to see it back. There are lots of other options. Hopefully a local independent instead of another Cara brand.

I guess that was before I was born 😂. But in Vancouver downtown Milestones, Keg, cactus, and Joey seem to be the downtown competitors trying to claim dominance

I think they moved out to 8th street about 10 years ago. Back then John's was the go-to Stakehouse in downtown Saskatoon. It was old-school, but was the place to go for a business dinner. The Keg was second fiddle.

They use to be in the location at Ontario and 24th that has Ivy's. Ivy's was great, very original and not a chain you find in every Canadian downtown. Now I guess Ivy's is no more and it is "The District". I have not tried the "The District" so can't say.

The equivalent to what John's Saskatoon use to be if look at Vancouver would be Hy's Stakehouse. Hy's is also use to be in Ottawa but now it looks like it is just Vancouver, Whistler, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Toronto. Classic old-school stakehouse.

Sounds like you all should be moving over to the Saskatoon restaurants, pubs and retail thread now. Just a Heads Up!>)

Window wall installation has begun on the west side of the condo tower. (I didn't take a picture because I was on my bike today) I wonder how they plan to insulate the edges of the floor slabs to lessen the effects of thermal bridging.
