I would say 'meh' to it too, without even seeing it or hearing the details.
Make it 3 including me. I would also say 'meh' to it.

[QUOTE=one_brick_at_a_time;9205342]Ps, just to refresh on what the conceptual drawings were for the new Floral
Conservatory. Pretty cool!

On a related note, the new Dutch Growers building is nearing completion, looks like a lot more greenhouse space then their old location.

Sarcan on Fleury St (just north of Dewdney) is closing at the end of the week and moving to 5000 Parliament in HL which puts it sort of between WBM and the Co-op.

Dutch Growers' new building is huge! It's so much more than I was expecting to see. Thanks for posting your pics, Youdon'tknow

I wonder what will take its place on Pasqua St. That lot is ridiculously long, but also narrow (and narrows to a point).

I know that indoor mini golf and go carts used to be where the boat dealership is now just north of Dutch, but maybe that would work well in the former Dutch Growers location? A new smaller version of Maxwell’s Amusements Water slides?

Nor was I. I am talking about a baseball stadium that has been proposed. Which is much more 'meh' than aquatic.

Looks like the city is putting up a pedestrian crossing (with activated lights?) at the corner of Albert St. South and the South Service Road (just north of Gordon Rd). That is where the young woman was struck and killed this past year while crossing.

This is a good move—I've worked near there, and it's a very busy street to cross uncontrolled.

I will never understand why we have had this huge surge in politicians wanting a new baseball stadium this past year. Flegel made it his hill to die on. And now Masters is on board.

The Regina Red Sox averaged 589 attendees in their 2019 season. Tickets are $11. The team brought in less than $200,000 in ticket revenue their entire 2019 season. Have they ever even sold out a non-playoff game?

While I disagreed with the new Mosaic stadium, there's not denying the team is super popular in Regina.

We need a new hockey rink/arena. With concerts, it would be actually used regularly. The new baseball stadium would sit empty from August 15 until May 15.

On this topic, I went up the Rose Street parkade yesterday overlooking the proposed site for the new hockey arena. Putting the arena on 1800 block Rose would have such a positive affect on downtown and would fill our most obvious gap in development. It would connect super well with the Delta and the Casino, and I’d expect would go a long way of convincing a development (like Alt) to put up a hotel on Broad.

Plus, eliminating a significant dead zone on the East side of downtown would go a long way to beginning revitalization of the Heritage neighbourhood.

Was wondering the same thing. IF a new downtown arena was going to happen, Broad Street actually would be a great spot and would help start some other hotel and restaurant development and rejuvenation around it. Broad Street area otherwise will continue to be empty. Anthony Marquart already has quite a bit of property in that section.

Proposed was the wrong word choice as it has never gone through official channels and I’m not sure how serious the talks are. But this is the only spot I’ve ever heard discussed for a new arena and Marquart already owns most (if not al) of the block. Would be the only spot downtown I can think of that would be able to serve such a purpose

Exactly. That's not gonna happen. But they are right, it would rejuvenate an all but completely dead downtown Regina if it did happen. Too bad it won't. Downtown Regina will continue to spiral downward without something like that.

Covid is going to leave many permanent changes in the world, even once most people are vaccinated and the spread is drastically reduced. It will be interesting to see what sort of demand there will be for sporting and entertainment facilities, shopping, hotels, offices, etc. I am hoping for the best, but we have to be realistic.

Realistic for what? People will flock back to their old ways as soon as this is over. I don't know anyone who thinks any of this is permanent.
