This proposed development is located on an important and neglected site in Edmonton’s downtown: on the main street of Jasper Avenue, next to the Shaw Conference Centre and on the edge of the River Valley. Its scope includes a tower with a maximum height of 280 metres, which will incorporate a hotel and residential condominiums, as well as terraces that step down
towards the River Valley with anticipated pedestrian linkages.
The development is notable for maintaining street-level views of the river valley that can be enjoyed year-round by all members of the public. It also privileges indoor/outdoor relationships, and pays particular attention to the site’s connectivity to the surrounding area. KENNEDY led the successful rezoning of this highly publicized project. More details can be found here.
