Once all the construction is done there is going to be a very solid urban core from basically Princess Street to these buildings.

Never mind that the grand monuments of premodern architecture celebrated today are the result of incredible inequality, as the conditions of the working poor were atrocious in that era, and that the current trend toward further inequality correlates with increased public opinion that the buildings of the past were better.
oh boy haha, PC alert

Except for the half block immediately "south" of William, yes. I expect we'll eventually see a redevelopment proposal for Erb & Good Funeral Home - that parking lot out back must be very tempting.

Wouldn't be surprised. I always thought it was a bit cruel to put the retirement home and funeral home right next to each other. I wonder if they just built a tunnel between the two for ease of transportation...

Saskatchewan is getting a new tallest.

Nutrien (formerly PotashCorp) has signed on to be the anchor tenant in the River Landing North Tower in Saskatoon.

The North Tower is proposed to be 95 metres.

The parkade of the shorter East Tower is currently being excavated, and the hotel/condo is topped out.

This will complete the River Landing development on Saskatoon's south downtown riverbank.

Awesome. Glad to see downtown get a grand public plaza-type space.

Massive shot in the arm for Saskatoon's skyline which has somehow resisted significant change since the 1980s despite major growth in the metro area. Great news, and beautiful design too.

So this is going directly across the street from the Selby. I don't have high hopes for it. Not a fan that they are using what looks like red precast to tie it in with the surrounding buildings. The Selby did a good job with the brick treatment, I don't think we can expect the same quality here. Hopefully I'm wrong.

More of the same design from 591, it's alright, depending on how well it's executed. I'd rather leave those retail buildings as is, they have some nice shops in there, and look great architecturally. Not sure why the render is a bit messed up, but it's no matter.

Good to hear a tenant for the taller River Landing tower, I'd love to see how that project is activating the riverside area.
