Nutrien, the world’s largest fertilizer company, is set to move into what will become Saskatchewan's tallest building once it’s built on the north edge of Saskatoon’s River Landing.

It will be the third building site in a $300-million complex under development by Triovest Realtors Advisors Ltd. for owners Victory Majors Development Corp. and Greystone Managed Investments Inc. and will be set for completion in 2021 & will include a Winter Garden on the top floor.

A waterfall, a butterfly garden and a tropical biome: Diversity Gardens taking shape at Assiniboine Park
$75-million project replaces the Assiniboine Park Conservatory that closed earlier this
year
The first limbs of a $75-million gardens and plant conservatory project are sprouting in a construction site at the southeast corner of Assiniboine Park.

Canada's Diversity Gardens is the final of three phases of redevelopment of the park, which began in 2009. The $200-million Assiniboine Park makeover included improvements to the duck pond, the building of the Qualico Centre and the Nature Playground, and the revitalization of the zoo.

It will also involve tearing down the Conservatory, which stood in the park for more than a century and closed at the beginning of April. The gardens are being constructed on the 14-hectare plot occupied by the Conservatory.
"What we're building here is not a replacement, it's going much more beyond what was here before," said Gerald Dieleman, project director for the gardens.

"This is really a key step forward for tourism and travel here in Manitoba. It's a draw, it's an attraction, in a way that the old facility couldn't achieve," he said.

The tropical biome will feature a six-storey free-flowing waterfall and pond, as well as a canopy walkway to give guest a bird's-eye view of the space.


The roof of the main building, The Leaf, will be made of lightweight plastic that is translucent and able to withstand extreme temperatures and wind. (Supplied)


Project director Gerald Dieleman shows media an artist's rendering of what the Diversity Gardens will look like from a distance at night.


The Leaf structure at Canada's Diversity Gardens is beginning to take shape above ground, after construction began last year.

Construction of Canada’s Diversity Gardens @assiniboinepark is moving along. Going to be a very unique addition to Winnipeg’s cultural attractions.

Really awesome stuff. Love seeing Winnipeg and Saskatoon take off!



Here are some of Calgary's many projects under way as well...


New Central Library - 6 storeys

500 Block South - 110 meters - 35 storeys

Underwood Tower - 100 meters - 31 storeys

Telus Sky - 222 meters - 60 storeys

The Concord - 57 meters - 17 storeys

Calgary has a few buildings that are starting (in one case restarting) site prep, with our in-the-know Skyrise forumers saying that trades have been secured and construction is imminent.

Curtis Block - 3 towers (eastern two towers to go ahead first) - 118 meters (taller tower) - 36 storeys (taller tower) - pewter metal/glass cladding

Yorkdale Update, haven't seen one for a good two or so years on here:
This is the state of Yorkdale Condos I
(http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=105995)
[IMG]TJ161436 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]TJ161443 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]TJ161444 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]TJ161440 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
And Yorkdale Condos II will be rising soon:
[IMG]TJ161441 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
This is taken from the same parkspace, the left and central cranes are for Rocket Condos
(http://http://skyscraperpage.com/cit...ldingID=115351) and the right cranes are for the Southside projects (http://http://skyscraperpage.com/cit...ldingID=108689)
[IMG]TJ161439 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
Also, the Empire Midtown site has a crane, I can see it from the Eglinton West station.

Source: @glascurtainAn incredible, impressive, laudable investment in a major Canadian city is happening faster than we knew!
.
This shows TRUE confidence in the City of Winnipeg, the likes of which can only serve the city well in the next 20-30 years. Watch out for this town, it’s on the up and up! .
With a bountiful building stock like this, there’s huge potential here. Why can’t all Canadian cities preserve their heritage this well while also growing for the future?

Apparently someone's been listening to criticism that Yaletown is colourless and bland.

Some solid buildings short and tall on this page. That last Vancouver condo is different. Not sure how I feel about it but it's interesting. It feels like something you might find in a south American city. The more I look at it the more I like it.

Interesting, my first thought was South America as well. I like it. Bring on more large-scale splashes of colour and art to Canada's often bland condo towers

Wow! I like it! Actually quite amazing how much one taller landmark tower (Vancouver House) and this big splash of colour can change the feel of a skyline.
