Solo District to begin construction this summer

I initially became aware of this project over a year ago when a reader pointed out It is a great discussion site that focuses on major high-rise developments around the world.  I occasionally use this to search for information on topics relevant to this blog.  This morning, I was able to find a promotional pamphlet at SkyscraperPage.

It appears that the massive projects at the SW and NE corners of Willingdon and Lougheed will begin to unfold simultaneously.  While the pending Brentwood Mall Redevelopment is in its consultation phase, the Solo District Project will be moving ahead.  A pamphlet by Colliers International indicates that the construction of Solo District is expected to begin in 2012 with a 42, 000 sf grocery store and a 45 story residential tower in the northwest corner of the site.  The following info is from the Colliers International site and lists the proposed phasing of the project.

As the map below shows, the grocery store will be accompanied by a proposed pharmacy, bank, and an office tower.

The "high street" will see smaller shops facing inward (south) from Lougheed Hwy. and above-ground parking will be provided.
