Did you hear the big news this week? A LUKES café is coming to EV in @nclinev!
When #NCLinEV opens this November, Calgarians will have not only an iconic place to read, learn and connect, but also a unique place to get their caffeine fix. The LUKES café space in NCL will be operated by a dynamic local partnership of Gareth Lukes (@lukesdrugmart) and Eric Hendry (Chef of @barvonderfels).
#YYC views from the top of @framslokker's Verve, where we celebrated the building's topping off earlier today. Verve will be ready to welcome residents home to East Village later this year!
