Residents push back on small-scale commercial building proposed for Glenora Dozens of lawn signs in a west Edmonton neighbourhood are displaying a message for city council: maintain the community’s family feel by keeping commercial development out. The signs read "we support family oriented development" — a response to a proposed small-scale commercial building that would sit across from a future LRT stop in Glenora. The proposal will go to a public hearing before city council on Monday. If approved, it would turn a one-storey home into a two-storey commercial development on 134th Street and 104th Avenue.

The developer, Extell, had to purchase 6,000 sq ft (560 sqm) of "air rights" from surrounding buildings for the $3 billion (£2.4bn) block on West 57th Street.

Some New Yorkers have complained the skinny tower, flanked by two other tall buildings under construction, on the southern edge of Central Park is casting shadows on the park, but Extell President Gary Barnett dismissed the concerns.

Speaking at a topping off ceremony on Tuesday to celebrate the tower reaching its full height, he said they had done shadow studies.

He said: "It's just a question of, you know, occasionally somebody might be sitting somewhere in the park and there'll be a shadow for, I don't know, 20 or 30 minutes."

The first seven storeys of the building will be a Nordstrom department store.

For years residential school in B.C. destroyed Indigenous culture. Now it’s a place of luxury and healing .

She would be housed in a dormitory there and bused in each day to another nearby school.
