Gardens on Rose | Regina | 13 floors | 45 meters | UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Important projects need their own threads... no one else is doing it so I will

I cannot see Graham Construction building this and Centre Square Place exactly in sync. That is, they wil not be excavating at simultaneously. One would assume they will excavate CSP first and then start shoring. The excavators will move 2 blocks down to GoR followed by the shorers once they are done at CSP...and so on. It only makes sense.

Do they have to shore the GoR even though they don't have underground parking? i think CSP has 2 floors of underground parking.

about half of the parking lot has been ripped up. Nice to actually see work going on.

The Condo Building And The Untouchable Couch
by James Brotheridge

People keeping an eye on housing in Regina, like any of the many who showed up to last night’s city council meeting, might be interested to know: the Guns N’ Roses Condo Complex is on its way! (GnR because the Gardens on Rose, the building’s official name, share a logo with the hard-rocking band behind “Welcome to the Jungle”, minus the pistols.) Of course, this doesn’t have a whole lot to do with “affordable” housing; the cheapest suite they have listed at their website is going for $441,000. Still, it’s better than the semi-empty parking lot that was there before.

I say “semi-empty” because you’d still see people parking there on occasion in addition to one regular resident: the couch in the middle of that picture. It has been there for months. Someone ditched it and no one has had the ambition or desire to move it since. Here’s a picture of the couch in warmer times.

Almost all the stuff that made this a parking lot has been cleared off the lot, but the couch remains. I really don’t think it’s going anywhere. As the building goes up, they’re just going to have to build around it. It’ll be an architectural feature of the building.

The ground breaking ceremony happened back in November, but yesterday was the real day stuff got started.

Take a look after the jump for another angle of the scene
soure the prairie dog , they have a picture digging up the site
It's great that you mention it's in the prairie dog, but can you post a link with your articles?

Last week there was a hole but it looks like all they did was rip out a bunch of rocks and backfill it all. I am almost wondering if there is going to be no excavation with this one and they were just clearing any debris on the site before they started hammering in piles.

Well, the parking is supposed to be the first 4 floors above ground right? So that could make sense I guess.

Construction crews have blocked off 1 block of Rose Street and put up concrete barriers.





This sign, with an estimated completion date, was put up a few weeks ago.
