I think your math is off Willy, I am pretty sure they were looking at more than 21 square feet.

I realize that when this was drawn up location was mostly speculation. How ever why would they think the site right next to Costco (north side) be a good choice? Right next to or in the largest commercial development in St Albert must be the most expensive location possible? As others have said the old London Drugs location would be a very suitable location and cost cociderably less. $21m. = $1m per square foot. That seems extremely expensive. I know borrowing was pre-approved for up to $21m. but name me a project in this city that has come in on or under budget. http://pbtech.org/clients/stalbert/attch/stalbertcc08182014/3.2_Community_Library_Branch.pdf


Well, Willy, 95% of all city projects are on or under budget... Even the "Road to nowhere" came in $200K under.

No matter the cost, it still is "A road to Nowhere"!
