They should put a local grocery store in 2 or 3 of the bays in the bottom similar to the ICA in Stockholm Sweden...

According to its website http://www.612mainstreet.com/features it's over 65% leased. Looks like the floor plans show the top floors are leased (I'd imagine by Kindrachuk Agrey Architects), and a space on the first floor is leased as well. Hopefully shovels get in the ground soon!

Does anyone know the status of the proposed Hampton Hotel on Stonebridge next to the new Sheraton Four Points? Is it under construction?

Well a Google search says that its current address is 103 Stonebridge Boulevard, but that's the address of Four Points by Sheraton... and then on a map it shows it as being next to the DQ at the intersection with Wellman Lane... and then the Enterprise Saskatchewan document says that it was supposed to have started in 2011 and finish this year... confusing?

Speaking of schools, here's an article saying that 11 new schools will be needed by the two divisions in Saskatoon within 5 years.

The projected cost of these 11 schools is nearly $200 million — in today’s dollars.
So ~ 18mil per school...this doesn't sound too bad, does it? I'm not sure how much schools should cost I guess, but in comparison to say the new Police station which has a budget of $122 million on its own it seems like a bargain.

It's also a bargain compared to this school in LA :

City opposes shopping centre rezoning

By David Hutton, The StarPhoenix March 29, 2012

A $120-million shopping centre proposed for Stonebridge is in the middle of a zoning debate pitting a major developer against city hall.

The commercial development, proposed by North Ridge Development Corp., is in a holding pattern after city administration recommended a zoning change required be denied because it isn't compatible with the neighbourhood plan.

18 million sounds about right for a new elementry school. There are two brand new schools being built in regina currently both around the same price of 16.1million. They are Douglas park and arcola school.

I think that's FAILblog-worthy! I was thinking about the schools planned for Willowgrove and wondering whether there were renderings yet when I stumbled on that...

Has anyone seen renderings for the schools?

Saskatoon needs about a billion dollars in the next five years for changes to our infrastructure and new additions to support our population growth.

I remember seeing a copy of the floor plan, but don't remember where now. The building in Willowgrove is slightly more expensive since the classroom part of the building has to be two stores given the small size of the lot. There is also a centre common area with some multi-purpose rooms that serve as a community centre.

The two schools and a community centre area all sharing the same building is a neat idea.

Feel free to paint me the asshole for expressing such, but I find all this excitement over potential new Montanas, Boston Pizzas, Tim Hortons and the lot rather depressing. Is this what it's all about? This is the sum product of being the fastest fastest growing city in the nation?

God help us all.

Totally agree here. I know it's "development", but the same old chains the city has multiples of already in bland and boxy suburban centres is almost worse than nothing at all.

These things go up so fast it doesn't allow for any local enterprise to sprout in the areas.

I don't think much, if any, excitement has been expressed about these things. hah.

Also, beggars can't be choosers, and I still like to know what's going where, regardless of what it is.

Target confirms Saskatoon store in The Centre mall

The StarPhoenix March 29, 2012


Target has confirmed The Centre at Circle and Eighth shopping mall will be home to a future Target location.

Target purchased the leasehold interest in The Centre at Circle and Eighth site, which is currently occupied by Zellers. Target plans to open 125 to 135 stores in Canada, the majority of which will open in 2013, the company said in a news release. Approximately $10 million-$11 million will be invested to remodel each facility in order to bring the full Target brand experience to Canadian communities.

Target had previously announced it was opening a store in Lawson Heights. Both locations are scheduled to open in summer 2013. Typically Target stores employ approximately 150-200 people.

The giant U.S. retail corporation operates 1,765 stores across the United States, with the first stores in Canada to open in 2013.
