IDEA 2018 Self-guided INFILL TOUR

Thank you so much to everyone who was able to come out for the 2018 Self-guided Infill tour! 

This years tour was all about meeting the people who build, live and love infill. So many times we just see photos in the paper but there are amazing people who build these projects. This was a chance not only to see amazing properties but to talk to the people who built them. 

We had over 100 people go through the seven sites that included a Mirrored Dragon Garage Suite, Semi-Detached with an oasis rooftop patio and a commercial infill space in a mature neighbourhood that so many love. 

Please send us your feedback, it will help inform how the 2019 Infill Tour takes shape.

Refill with Infill: Urbanized Film Screening

"Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it?" That is the exact question we want to ask, and the question we need to address as a city. Edmonton is changing - our people, streets, and businesses are evolving by the year as we become a more livable metropolitan area. Infill is not new to the global conversation, but it’s a growing trend in our city and one that we should be embracing.

So let’s talk about it - what do you have to say? Join us on Wednesday, July 26th, at Edmonton's newest infill project in Ritchie for a viewing of the short documentary Urbanized, sponsored by Dialog.

"Urbanized is a feature-length documentary about the design of cities, which looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world's foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers. Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it? By exploring a diverse range of urban design projects around the world, Urbanized frames a global discussion on the future of cities."

Stick around for refreshments after the screening and share your unique perspective on infill in our city with other Edmontonians.
