Parking critical in condo projects

EDMONTON Forget about the rooftop patio, glossy kitchen, or perfect view.

Those might be the first things a buyer looks for in a condominium, but they're woolrich outlet milano not the first things a developer thinks about when drawing plans for a project.

"Every project ray ban outlet revolves around parking. Most buildings are designed around it," nike air max italia said Robert McLeod, CEO of McLeod Project Marketing, which works on condo projects in canada goose roma Edmonton.

Parkades may not be pretty to look at, but they literally form the foundation of highrise condo towers and remain a vital selling feature for any condo unit in Edmonton.

The cost of an scarpe hogan outlet online underground parking stall in the downtown area these days? Approximately $25,000. The cost for a surface level stall? About $10,000.

Land costs are so high downtown that it generally makes sense to move parking underground. Some projects can involve two to four levels of underground parking, which is an expensive and potentially complicated project, McLeod said.

In more suburban locations, a developer might build one level of underground parking and then offer additional, less expensive, surface level parking as an alternative.

"I always try to help buyers understand what the true value of parking is," McLeod said.

And sometimes they figure it out for themselves. He recalled a recent condo project where units initially went on sale in the summer. Some buyers opted for the surface level stalls. But as winter came into force, many of those buyers asked to upgrade to underground stalls.

Some condo developers in Edmonton are breaking out the cost of a parking stall, with suites sold at a certain cost and parking stalls sold separately. McLeod's firm is working on ghd outlet store uk the louboutin pas cher six storey Infinity on 105 building in Oliver, which initially allowed buyers to choose between a surface and underground stall hogan sito ufficiale and the price was separate from the unit. Prices at the Infinity now include the surface stall.

Parking in condo towers is controlled by city regulations, which dictate specifications such as the size of a stall and the size of the aisle. The city also sets parameters for canada goose outlet the number of stalls needed for a building.

For example, a condo building requires one stall per one bedroom or bachelor apartment and requires at least 1.5 stalls per two bedroom apartment. There must be one visitor parking stall per seven units.

Those moncler outlet milano rules change for buildings in tiffany italia negozi transit oriented development areas, and the requirements ease up for buildings located downtown. Condos in the area between 95th Street and 111th Street generally require .4 stalls per one bedroom unit and .8 stalls per two bedroom unit.

This has led some developers to market suites as "one bedroom, plus den" rather than "two bedroom," McLeod said. A bigger two bedroom suite not only bumps up the selling price significantly but also requires more parking stalls.

In Calgary, a developer has made headlines for pitching a condo tower without offering parking karen millen dresses stalls to residents. It's hogan outlet online a relatively rare proposal in Canada.

"I would say that 100 per cent sacs longchamp pas cher of my clients need parking," said Jakie Ng, a realtor with Re/Max River City in Edmonton.

The number of clients who don't need a stall is "very, very small," Ng said. The scarpe hogan outlet online lack of a parking stall becomes an issue when that client wants to sell the unit canada goose italia few people will want to buy it without a stall.

Ng thinks the situation may change in Edmonton when condo prices get so high that people may consider shaving $30,000 off the cost of their home to get into the building they want, even without parking.

Things might also change when public transit in Edmonton develops to the point where not having a car becomes an easier option, he said.

Ng has seen an cheap hair extensions underground parking stall in a high end Edmonton building sell for $45,000, although he acknowledges that price is unusual.

Police investigate source of explicit photos of Maine girls on Facebook

BRUNSWICK, Maine The Maine Computer michael kors uk sale Crimes Task Force and local law enforcement agencies have worked frantically over the past few days to track down the person or persons responsible for a series of Facebook pages that have posted nude ghd lisseur photos of dozens of Maine teens from all over the state.

Just as fast as police, and then Facebook, could shut coach outlet the page down on Wednesday, a new version surfaced, leaving officials scrambling to track the source and talk to victims, who by Thursday were outlet hogan in the dozens, according to air max scontate Oakland Police Detective Tracey Frost. to "plead her case" or nude photos would nike tn requin pas cher be posted.

By the time Frost turned off his iPad Tuesday night, the department had notified 14 other law enforcement agencies that a teen in their area had been victimized, he said.

"I know of victims in Cumberland, Oxford, Franklin, Kennebec, Waldo, Penobscot, Somerset and York counties," Frost said Thursday. Tuesday. The owner of the original page a "community" Facebook page that allows immediate public access at first posted photos of fully clothed golden goose 2016 teens along with "threats like, 'You're next' or 'State spaccio woolrich milano your case or I'm posting what I have for images,'" Armstrong said.

The posts encourage people to submit coach outlet online store photos of former girlfriends or boyfriends. Despite pleas by some teens in the comments, the nude photos were subsequently posted, Armstrong said.

The computer crimes task force, which has taken the lead in the state's investigation, notified Facebook to preserve all the accounts before removing the pages, Armstrong said. The unit obtained a canada goose outlet search warrant and now awaits information Armstrong hopes hogan outlet online will lead to the perpetrator.

"We have every one of those accounts clamped down," he said. air max outlet online "That's going to tell us everything about the individuals who went on those accounts, the logs, the chats, the pictures they posted "

But until that information arrives, Armstrong said, "We're in a holding pattern."

Meanwhile, detectives in individual towns and counties are talking to victims and others who may have information about the pages. ralph lauren uk They are attempting mbt scarpe to trace the path of the photos some of which appear to have been sent through a Russian email account, a signal to Armstrong that a computer savvy person may be behind the pages.

"We met with the girls and gave them resources and talked to their parents," Detective Sgt. Martin Rinaldi of the Brunswick police said Thursday. Each time a new page is created, new photos of the girls are posted, according golden goose soldes to Frost.

"You're talking about a teenage girl getting victimized three, four times," he said. "Psychologically, this is incredibly hard. There's no doubt they're suffering. I was so mad last night I almost threw my iPad against the wall."

Many of the posted photos appear to be "selfies," Armstrong said photos taken by the teen herself.

"[They're] human and teens are going to experiment," Armstrong said. "I just don't think they realize the consequences when [they] start dealing with digital media, how much this can ralph lauren sale blow up and explode."Frost, the Oakland detective, said he notified Facebook officials by woolrich uomo parka Internet and fax Tuesday, and the site was down within a few hours. He doudoune canada goose pas cher said the delay is understandable for such a huge company.

By Wednesday night, when authentic coach outlet online two more sites popped up with photos of teens from Cumberland and Sagadahoc counties, Facebook had them shut down within 45 minutes, according to Frost.

But Armstrong said Facebook didn't initially agree to take the page down, and responded to state police the photos didn't meet the criteria required for an offensive post.

"Then they reconsidered," he said. "They didn't tell us why they sent us an email saying they reconsidered, but how much damage canada goose italia was done in the meantime? And I suspect it wasn't us that [got it taken down] it was public outcry."

Asked about a suspect, Armstrong said he suspects someone or a group in Maine created the pages because they've victimized Maine teens.

"I don't believe the ones responsible are actually great friends with everyone but there's some indication people [know] them," he said.

A Facebook spokesman wrote in an email to the Bangor Daily News late Thursday afternoon, "Nothing is more important to Facebook than the safety of the people that use our site and this material has absolutely no place on Facebook. We maintain a robust reporting infrastructure that leverages over 1.4 billion people who use our site to keep an eye out for offensive or potentially dangerous content. This reporting infrastructure includes report links on pages across the Facebook site, systems to prioritize the most serious reports, and a trained team of reviewers who respond to reports and remove content that violates our standards." 相关的主题文章:

Huang Yongjun and his wife Millie Figure / respondents for map

"I just did not study Chinese do." Hunan Normal University, Associate Professor of Public Administration, a visiting scholar at Britain's University of London, SOAS - Huang Yongjun due to square dance and controversial study, recently, he received nine school news reporters interview.

Nine Camp News reporter Wang Peng Peng sent from Changsha

In 2012, students in the organization to a "liberal" as the theme of the debate, the topic related to the square dance, the debate has become fierce.

Huang Yongjun think, relates to freedom square dance behind the boundaries of public space, aging, empty nest and other issues, a few weeks later, he recruited volunteers in the classroom, decided to square dance as the core of social research.

At their own expense

"I just did not study Chinese do." Monga in Changsha Edmonton Road Cafe, Huang Yongjun this is, indeed, abnormal loud.

The 16-member research group, in addition to Huang Yongjun wife Millie, basically school students, "no funding, no project, no official, three no status." He said.

Academic system project must be declared, then pull the project funds approved, "We did not declare, declare it is impossible to get." In many people's eyes, there is no academic research value of the square dance.

Just this year, before the research results come out, trying to find the couple who asked for funding the publication, "people think nothing good research, not board the elegant hall, square dance that research is worthless, not to grant."

Huang Yongjun wearing a pink shirt, sitting in the cafe window seat, his wife Millie wearing a black dress, sitting next to him.

"This is a cold-hot, heat it, because everyone knows it cold, is we do not know what happened, so many people jump, but no one knows why they jump." He thought rigorous, transparent brow a resolute and decisive.

According to statistics, more than 100 million square dance friendly people, the main groups are 30-65-year-old middle-aged women, with the advent of an aging society, each family will probably be added to the elderly population to square dance, square dance will undoubtedly become a cultural and social phenomena.

Huang Yongjun prepare their own information,air max 90, at their own expense print, copy, buy a laptop assigned to the students, "It was their own expense, in fact, did not spend much money." He added.

16 people team investigates three provinces, eight regions, nearly 20 square dance team. Turning the entire research process, Millie smiled, "everyone involved is very rewarding."


Square Dance for the presence of a member of the research group of different opinions, some support, some against, "Our most important thing is not the unity of thinking,, but to express their opinions, everyone can own points of interest cut research."

After several meetings and discussions in class, the students begin training Huang Yongjun, "The first is to approach, to participate in the square dance team, the outside can not see the doorway, if you just look for them, he said to do research, no one will care about you,canada goose femme, which requires a method. "

Must first square dance team and a person or a few people lay a good relationship, they strive to become the middle of one, then there are long-standing and they dance.

"Also much with them and learn about their lives, helping them to dry work, such as end to download songs, Aunt will think it's cute child will accept you."

Huang Yongjun said that acquaintances tend to square dance groups, generally do not use thresholds, "but most of the new people will stand to the last row, jump good, active people will be encouraged to stand in the front row, the location of the station It represents the identity of the team. "

Also some bad jump, but stick to their lead dancer, "The rest will be Aunt booing, that you jump bad, get another jump, and some still are not convinced online video download, pointed out where the lead dancer jump right, lead dancer feel no face,hogan outlet, saying that I do not receive,piumini woolrich outlet, and follow you jump, he withdrew from the political arena. "

Aunt who is also a large part of the social team, they will share a lot of trivia, such as who made delicious food, there is no contradiction at home who, or how about the child class, by skipping square dance, they also get a lot of contacts.

"Square Dance team has some invisible powers, such as children who are doing, and maybe a dance, put the family or friends to settle the matter, meaning and a sense of accomplishment will be different, people jump Square Dance all live happier. "

Of course, some teams will gradually distribution, dissipated.

"In the beginning is five people, take a speaker in the other team learned some things, came back and jump, jumping more and more people, it involves contributions management, choice of music, the more people the more difficult to discuss inevitably produce differences over time on allocation or disbanded. "

Team leader because of different social status and obtain different resources, "the official wife team will have more opportunities than the township team pulled sponsorship, although not a lot of money."

Through meticulous research, Huang Yongjun combine their academic background, draw a number of conclusions.


Huang Yongjun think, square dance when young aunt have experienced collective fanaticism, after the reform and opening up, has undergone multiple "break", gradually enter into a confused state.

"People become rootless people, women as a lone individual, could not find any home, and then appear square dance such a thing, she was very happy to find the emotional satisfaction, but also exercise the body."

Square Dance is active with a "quasi-collectivist" in nature, with this in public, sociability, collective activity platform, they can get a sense of fracture digestion and bridging.

An associate professor in the same university Millie, for Huang Yongjun view complements "Square Dance easier to wake up women's groups, relative to men, women's life more boring, and have no opportunity to develop their own interests, in a spirit of more exhausted, so she is an urgent need to divert such an activity in the form of emotion. "

Square Dance for the controversy caused by Huang Yongjun think it is just the contradiction between supply and demand.

"They just need to dance, but also such a large group, how do you settle? Who will settle? So just to be with the corresponding, is meager supply of public resources, society does not provide a better venue, state, society, personally,, did not give a better solution, this is a deadlock. "

"In fact, square dance itself is a good thing." Through research, Huang Yongjun discovered square dance is very popular in the countryside, a real contradiction occurs only in the city, "urban space is too small, young, middle-aged people, students, everybody activity the space is small. "

Huang Yongjun to research group results into a book, in September 2015, "the noise of the individual and the silence of the public," a book published, which is the square dance Guoneishoubu research monographs.

"Hustle and bustle of the individual and the silent masses" Figure / respondents for map

Followed by Huang Yongjun responsible for the "Square Dance and middle-aged women in Hunan Province Health Information Governance" project, selected in 2015 in Hunan Province key R & D projects, and therefore detonated opinion.

A short period of time, he has accepted the US,piumini woolrich, Canada, France, Hong Kong and other domestic dozens of media interviews,, he boarded the major sites headlines.

"I did not expect such a man I fell, but also to the headlines." Huang Yongjun temporarily pushed to the cusp.


Because the focus of R & D projects selected, the attendant is Square Dance Studies midst of controversy.

Some netizens said:. "National projects should engage in some cutting-edge science and technology, human impacts on the huge project, and now you go to square dance research, the outcome document approved down, I think it is a very funny thing."

Many users will be the R & D projects and has just won the Nobel Prize in medicine for comparative research, that the study square dance quit down to business, but they can apply for funding under the banner of scientific research, and some valuable research projects, because they can not The funds set aside.

Huang Yongjun seem indifferent, he believes there is a humanistic concern of scholars, engaged in academic research goals, the first is to enhance human well-being, whether human or a so-called single person. Therefore, as long as his aunt who studies help to enhance the well-being is worth it.

He felt no financial support is not important, there are worth mentioning, no matter whether studies are gradually expanded.

"The government project, indicating they are also aware of the importance of this issue. If the government never approved, and can not reduce the importance of this issue, we are based on their academic sensitivity and social responsibility and launched an independent study, As for the government, society, media, academia and other research results which our attitudes and positions held, we do not care! "

Millie added again, said: "not less than the value of the individual groups, the meaning of existence for a single individual and spiritual demands attention, should never be seen as more than population, as a whole is more important, more weak and more subject to insignificant ignore."

The two of them has been hailed as a friend "Academic Kang Li" Together for 17 years, daughter was in kindergarten. "We want to do their own research, with a sense of mission alive, so good, very free." Huang Yongjun said.
