Whyte Wednesday

Too nice to stay inside today so I grabbed the camera and took a walk down Whyte Avenue.

Homer Simpson’s German cousin?

The new Roots on Whyte building (corner of Whyte and 102 Street) is almost finished – the exterior anyway, looks like there’s still a lot to do inside. The main floor will have organic groceries, a restaurant, bakery, meat market and coffee bar. I’m pretty stoked – I used to really like their restaurant on campus when they were Roots Organic (where Sobey’s is now).

The building is “faux historic” but it doesn’t look “theme park.”

Less stoked about this.

Beautiful glass tiles on the building below.
