One of the final moments to share from my visit to Regina earlier this month was the time that Tyler and I spent exploring downtown. I hadn't even realized prior, but 12th Avenue has now been paved to create the City Square Plaza around Victoria Park. This links the F.W. Hill Mall and creates a huge open walking space that brings a welcome and brand new focal point to the centre of the city. They've done a really nice job.
The new Mosaic Potash Tower (Hill Centre Tower III) is also nearly complete, which changes the symmetry of the skyline created by Regina's twin towers - not to mention the logo on the welcome to Regina signs. It's a beautiful area though, and we even had a few flashbacks from seeing the Saskatchewan Film Pool building again. It was where we screened our experimental film shorts back in 2006. It's great to see Regina continue to become a more dynamic place, and in some cases change so rapidly in just the few years that have passed since my time there in film school.
