Royal St. John's Regatta Committee has a survey regarding the Quidi Vidi Lake Master Plan: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7N7QDKC .
It asks how we think the park area around the lake can be improved ahead of the 200th regatta in 2018.

Tesla unveils Model 3
- $35,000 (usd)
- min 215 mile range (345km)
- releases in late 2017

http://jalopnik.com/tesla-model-3-ev...ned-1768732174

Nice looking car. Although arguably still not that affordable to a lot of folks. 35K USD is roughly 45K CAD right now. Which means Tesla will probably price it at at least 50K CAD.

We're still at least 5 years away until we start to see electric cars become adopted any noticeable rate imo.

Maybe not affordable to the average Newfoundlander, but I'm sure a successful business person like Andy Wells would be very interested.

Something to keep in mind with vehicle pricing, is that it's still no where in line with exchange rates, so they could price it anywhere they wanted. Case in point - I just bought a truck; MSRP was ~37k before taxes. The equivalent model/trim in the states is ~36k. So there isn't always a direct relationship.

The Templetons building is the most terrible looking building on Water Street. I hope there will be some re-development of this building in the near future. Every side of this building looks different, and every side is equally as ugly. I don't know what looks worse, the facade that is coming off the Bishops Cove side, or the depressing Brick and aluminum siding on the Water Street Side.

It's funny, Husky continues to maintain 60% of the building space in Templetons while half of the 7th floor and portions of the 8th floor at 351 are empty. Templetons basically won the lottery with that lease. If Husky ever leave and move to 351, Templetons will be left with fully renovated office space for basically nothing.

You'd think they could use some of that money towards sprucing up the exterior.

The building should be converted into something like a 15 story high-rise.

I wonder how long the lease is for? I'm assuming the lease in that building is going to cost less than moving to a shiny new building such as 351.

I happened to see this on VOCM's site regarding planning on the Northeast Avalon. http://vocm.com/news/planning-the-ne...on-the-avalon/
From the linked Facebook page I found myself at the website: http://www.ournortheastavalon.com/ .
I hadn't heard of this organization/initiative before, interesting.
