Arrow Future Edmonton Skyline

I liked the idea of a Calgary Future Skyline thread, so I thought Edmonton should have one. If anyone has a good skyline photo, maybe someone could photoshop some proposed, uc, or rumoured projects to see what the outcome would be. Just an idea for us Edmonton forumers.

Aurora and Icon

I knew that I remembered seeing a Future Edmonton thread around here somewhere.

I've done up models of the Icon and Aurora to give some idea what they'll look like. The Icon should be pretty close, but the Aurora needed tons of guesswork and is probably way off.

oh yeah, we pale in comparison. Aurora looks too scattered there, is it really going to be that spread out?

AHAHAHA, knowing Edmonton, I don't think so!

But don't get me wrong I'd like to see that happen, but with the height restrictictions due to YXD and all that...

Newfangled - good work.

The current developments won't change the traditional skyline shot from the south all that much but aurora, icons, and q will certainly have a dramatic effect on the view from the north.
