Sun shadows impacts of proposed Holyrood Gardens

Many people have asked for information about the sun shadow impacts of Regency Developments proposed development at Holyrood Gardens which will be discussed on November 27, 2017 at the extension of the November 17 public hearing. We made an animation to share our interpretation of the data provided on the City of Edmonton’s website.

The images supplied to the City do not show the full view of the neighbourhoods, but we know that the shadows cast by the buildings reach farther into Strathearn and Holyrood than shown. Why? There are even longer shadows before 9:30 in the morning and after 4:30 in the afternoon. Our requests for the missing data were unanswered, so this is the best information we can provide.
