^Wow, that's awesome! I really like the shapes of the buildings, and the LRT line.

I don't have anything that cool, but here's some dream proposal's I've sketched up for London:

That's what I was going to write. People invariably give credit to the 1st famous/public example when for all we know there could have been hundreds before it.

For example, I invented the minivan 4 years before Chrysler.

A London Shard But Better!!!!! All the 87 team would have to sign the corner stone...LOL ( the greatest team ever assembled by one nation??

Ladies, Gentleman and randoms viewing this thread, BEHOLD!!!

Blumberg! Or Pointe West (link 2), depends what you prefer to call that area. Anyways, heres the details:

Phase I | Two store areas, community centre, some single-family housing
Phase II | More single-family housing, greenspace #1 development, transit loop construction
Phase III | Mid-Rise area, Single Family housing, extension of Route 82(see link 3) to area for transit service 6am-6pm weekdays, as a start. Transfer to 22/24/25...
Phase IV | Convenient Store, more single family homes, developement or Siegfried Bike Path
Phase V | Apartments, Single Fam Housing, Construction of Assiniboine Avenue West
Phase VI | Bike path along Assiniboine River, two-lane bridge across river as well, with Augusta Drive extended north! Maybe a gas station near SW corner...
Future | Pointe West Bike Path, 1/2 more transit routes, 7-10 more "Phases"


Comments?

PS: Red blips are the future Super-Express service to Winnipeg!
