Dianne Slade Choose another location......not on public property and definitely not on the riverbank, with a busy road running alongside. No way.

It's the mandate of city council to consider all citizens and not be developer puppets; sure the lure of extra tax dollars is an incentive but what about being re-elected?

“The tower could negate the plan for the Quarters entirely,” said area resident Joelle Reiniger on Saturday. “We need to make development decisions that we will be proud of 50 years from now. This is one of Edmonton’s oldest neighbourhoods.”

Gary Power This area has been a hellhole for more than 50 years. Now a proposed tower of 80 stories that will bring much needed people to the area is being challenged!? Give your collective heads a shake!

Julie Ali Why does the area need it? The downtown area is a zoo. No one goes down there. It's all about putting up empty buildings. The economy is down the tube. Edmonton City Council needs to think of other issues other than helping developers to the finish line of extra profits. How about the communities they are supposed to serve and ordinary citizens?
