Marlborough Mall reno

Adding onto my previous submission called Marlborough Plaza, I had a few ideas for a renovation of the existing mall to keep and create jobs also to make and save money.

Free wifi on Calgary Transit

City of Calgary cTrains and buses should offer free wifi. The amount of morning and afternoon commuters that would be checking work emails would contribute to the economy, it would encourage transit ridership and the City could use the channel to promote things such as transit apps, low income assistance programs, bus pass reminders, etc.

New Plaza at Plus 15 Level to connect New Library and City Hall

Maybe if they ever decide to put a plus 15 between city hall and the new library they could incorporate the idea of an extended green space or plaza or a performance or eating area. The area on the south side of the Municipal Building is in a sunny area above a long driveway to parking underground. People could then easily use the parking at City Hall and go to the Library by using this plaza then an architecturally... more »
