Some discussion reg: this proposed development in the Assiniboine Park thread. It is a major addition to the Park and City, Hence a thread that may be of interest to some.

Looks awesome.

However I fear that when built will be a stucco and stone building with a skylight on the roof.

Thx for catching this update esquire..

The 2017 provincial budget has no dollars attached for the $75-million Diversity Gardens...

The Conservancy and the WAG received financial commitments from the previous NDP government, but the Progressive Conservative government said several months ago those plans were being reviewed and a decision would be coming in the near future

Site Preparation
You’ll notice some changes during your next visit to Assiniboine Park.

As we take another important step towards making Canada's Diversity Gardens a reality, there will be some ROAD CLOSURES in the southeast corner of the Park.

With community support, Canada's Diversity Gardens can be a one-of-a-kind cultural attraction that transforms the southeast corner of the Park and celebrates our diversity through the lens of nature. We hope the community is as excited about this project as we are and will help us bring it to life! Click here to learn more about this exciting development and how you can help.

The following road closures come into effect on Monday, May 8.

Locomotive Drive closed to vehicle traffic east of Conservatory overflow parking lot.
Both eastbound turn-offs from Conservatory Drive onto Locomotive Drive become two-way loop with no through traffic.
Formal Garden Way closed to vehicle traffic.
Southeast corner entrance closed (Roblin Blvd. and Park Blvd.)
Southbound turn-off from Assiniboine Park Drive onto Locomotive Drive closed to vehicle traffic.

All the site services and foundation tenders have closed. They will need a specialist for the exterior facade EFTE (Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene) cable structure. <----that's a mouthful.
