    I wasn't actually directly referring to the picture whatsoever; the picture is nice, much better than the vast majority of your efforts. Close to vertically aligned, reasonably accurate colours, good composition. Well done! You still need to clean your gear though, you've got crap all over your sensor and/or lenses. Poor Nikon D40.

    Your hyperbolic, bombastic, bought-and-paid-for rhetoric, however, remains something I'll continue to present an opposing viewpoint to thanks to my unique perspective of once having thought very much like you before an intense period of personal growth that caused many of my previous conceptions to be challenged & re-evaluated. While I don't think you're looking for or capable of the level of change I went through, I still feel like my perspective is worthy of being shared.

    Buildings like this one really emphasize how closing that airport was one of the greatest decisions this city has ever made. Too bad it happened 30-40 years too late.

    I'm just excited to start finding new places where we will be able to see downtown towers that they aren't currently visible from.

    Conversely, many people (especially here in the microcosm) vastly overstate the impact & influence of Downtown (& its related developments) in a city that's highly decentralized like Edmonton.
    Currently - or turning a page to no longer be - decentralized, but why does that mean we can not attempt to evolve Edmonton's urban core? True this will not solve a plethora of ills hitting Edmonton's core, but the vitality of the urban core is vital to the City overall, no? FYI, I'm not anti-suburban. We can admit Edmonton is decentralized, but for how long, is it a good thing, and as we are adapting to a more 21st Century urban design model... will it be in the years to come? Infrastructure and policy updates/upgrades will more dense and centralized office/residential towers a bad thing?

    We should be encouraging more urban and central investment and infrastructure upgrades.

    I disagree actually. Considering much tax revenue is generated in the downtown community; and the ties that money has to projects across the city, I'd say it's the most important community to be attractive and vital. We want it to grow so the rest of the city can prosper as well.

    That's not to say vibrant suburbs don't reflect well on our identity as well - I'm just saying we want it to be lovable and liveable so we can bring more businesses in and retain our current success stories. That's a good thing in my books.

    Not sure how fast people will be rushing to purchase 650sq ft units with no parking for those prices with those layouts. There are certainly more lucrative options on the marke to be honest.

    If you live or work out of town. We have a few units in our building who have 300-400k units for weekend use a few times a month as they live up north or out of the country. You would be surprised.

    It's a different market though from when those were bought Ian. I guess we will have to watch and see but I wouldn't be surprised if all we saw were a few sales and stantec scooping up a few units.

    If I had that much to spend I would be considering other options.

    Great building with awesome views and stellar amenities.

    Not pleased with the layouts however... Some of the bedrooms are VERY small. Also not having floor to ceiling windows is a deal breaker for me. 13 units per floor as well is pretty dense for my personal taste.

    Otherwise it's still an incredible development that will push Edmonton forward. I can see the idea of living in one of the tallest buildings in Canada being an attractive label to some people.

    I could see an MLA grabbing one of these and renting it out to a friend. They don't really need parking and it is a good investment if they don't get re-elected to another term.

    So 24'x18 condo 430sqft= $700sqft and no parking. Of course this doesn't include taxes so really for the smallest stock unit with zero upgrades it's coming in at close to $750 a sq ft. I'm just highlighting not criticizing but wow is that way to rich for my blood.

    the layout can be deceiving also for some, good marketing I guess. It is TIGHT in there. The bed should have a pillow not two as that would be a single bed and still be hard to find two nightstands that are designed for small units. 103" in living area is so tight. I'm thinking very few people have actually been in such a scaled down living quarters?

    However this tower will defy edmontons previous perceptions that high end doesn't work here or there is no money. Sales will be robust,the whole area is a game changer.

    It's actually not deceive at all. These were designed to be rentals and it shows.

    I'm not bashing. I love the tower but I think those prices are out to lunch.

    Looking at unit E I personally would rather see completely open concept. Still have bathroom and walk in closet in that configuration. I would also rather see an all in one washer/dryer combo in the kitchen been quite the norm in parts of Europe for years. Open the suite up a bit more also removing that laundry room wall and that sliver of space could accommodate an open style 5 bottle wine rack or spice pullout in kitchen. And that's not even talking about the extra space on the other side in laundry room.I doubt what I think would sell as easy, a studio just doesn't sound or command the same as a 1 bedroom and I suppose privacy in a 400sq ft space is paramount��

    A bit pricier than expected on a per square foot basis, but not shocking. I'd have been shocked if the pricing started below $600/ft. Keep in mind that the lowest suites here will still be some of the highest in the city.

    The unit clearly indicates 490 sq.ft, not 430. That puts it at $622/ sq.ft. After that, I'm not sure what "taxes" you added to get to $750. With GST I'm only getting to a touch over $650, but that's fairly irrelevant as any other new build would also have GST applied.

    In any case, while I currently live in a condo I don't find the pricing or product particularly appealing. Mostly I wouldn't want to live in a building with that large of a condo association that would be mostly comprised of investors that don't live in the building. Dealt with that at one building and I'd rather not again.

    Yeah, this is an issue with my building currently as there's lots of out-of-town/province/country ownership. I couldn't imagine how much worse it'll be there. I can also foresee a lot of the units here (and in Legends) being put onto the short-term rental/AirBnB path, leading to a different swath of issues.

    These generally won'the be bought by investors in Edmonton through. A lot of marketing is apparently being done in Asia. I think these will sell fast.

    I got distracted by the pic my bad. Even though it's clearly labeled 490 I just quickly added up quick measurements and guesstimates. As for my pricing all rounded numbers based on pure laziness. Still does not change the fact the bedroom is 87sq ft. Not how sq ft is calculated but I'll stand by my informal 430sqft of useable living space so actual price with gat $653sqft

    If it does end up with a lot of empty investor units, its not a good thing - you end up with all sorts of issues. For example, if a drain blocks and its starts back flowing from the units above (has happened in my condo a couple of times, and its a quite new building), there is no-one there to call it in, before you know it, its all seeped down into the unit below. AirBnB scares me, re bedbugs and similar taking root.

    I wonder if this building would really appeal to Chinese investors, there aren't direct flights from Edmonton to China, so it seems a bit unlikely to me - they seem to have a preference for Pacific cities, or key cities (like NYC, Toronto, etc.).

    I can't imagine a 9x10 foot bedroom, that's really tight. I realize developers are trying to hit a "sweet spot" in terms of what the market can afford, by downsizing units all the time but keeping the high end finish that people want, but that's getting a bit crazy.

    1/3 of my building was sold to offshore Chinese buyers in Edmonton 10 years ago. For just getting wealth outta China the location isn't terribly crucial.

    I imagine considering there's a hotel in the building that the condo bylaws will have a pretty robust short term rental bylaw. Or at least it should.

    Honestly I expected small units given the lofty goal of cramming 300+ units in. But the prices need to better reflect the reality of the product. Yes this is the highest residential in Edmonton (with some floors being the highest residential outside Toronto) but does that command such a price?

    I know it's just a model but I hope the blueish/gray glass will be accented on the residential part so it'll look like one continuous building. Not one stacked on top another. That height is just wicked though. 😀

    Parking is 75K per stall. Have to spend more than $479K to be allowed to purchase one stall. Pretty much rules out 90% of the 1 BRs.

    Most of the floors have 6 of the C design unit... That's way too many of the same 1 BRs. Other thoughts are that they should have offered the K and K1 layouts on more floors than just 60-66. Would have been a very popular layout.

    Overall this development is a disappointment compared to Legends for me. Higher prices, less desirable layouts and no parking. Sure you get the height.. but in no way are some of their entry level 2 BRs worth $100k more than entry level in JW.

    I made that decision (altho not to West Block) about 2 months ago. The writing was on the wall as soon as they decided to start marketing Stantec as condos instead of the original plan of Tower B. A freestanding condo tower of 35-40 stories might be priced reasonably (for my taste and most upper-middle but non-elites) but a 35 story condo perched on a 30 story office tower with the claim of highest building W of Hogtown, well, no way that was going to be priced within reach of most of us.

    Wow, I thought the government value of my condo stall (30k) was expensive, but I guess not... I wonder how they do this? Are there enough stalls for every 1 BR or have they mathematically assumed how many people in those lower units will choose to buy stalls? I guess they can cannibalize the office stalls for the residential as needed? That might be what's driving the high price, they might realize they can lease it out quite easily, so why go cheap with the residential?

    Yep, unlike typical residential the parking won't be subsidised by the living space.
    I'm a little surprised they make parking unavailable to purchasers of smaller suites, but maybe that goes with expecting investors and pieds-a-terre? If you're just there a night or two a week it hurts a lot less to pay to park by the day.

    There are some fairly well off people out of town/northern Alberta who regularly come to Edmonton for hockey games. If they come here regularly, it might make sense for them to have their own place they can go back to vs. arranging a hotel every time. It might also work well for some similar suburban people who have a long trek home after the game or concert, particularly if they work downtown and it is a week night. I suppose you pay for the convenience and the location.

    I was at the VIP event last week and was surprised by the high pricing as well. I expected the pricing to come in slightly lower than Legends pricing, but it was quite the jump. I will be following the sales of this project just out of curiosity on how sales do. I think the value of the Legends units have gone up from the asking prices of Sky alone.

    I'd imagine some of the reasons that the Legends is a bit cheaper that Sky is that the Legends south view is obstructed by Sky, the condo fees at Legends will be higher, and the Legends condos are on average on lower floors.

    Better layouts, more layouts, more sq footage, parking included and less units per floor makes Legends a million times more attractive to me.

    Unit we purchased in Legends on floor 33 was 1000 sq ft with one parking stall for mid 600’s after GST. Comparable unit in Stantec is the “A” Layout on floor 33 (lowest floor but more equivalent to floor 38-40 due to office floors below) and is 930 sq ft with no parking. That started at $679K + $75K parking stall + GST. That brings you to $792K all in almost. Very tough to justify a poorer layout with not as nice finishing a compared to Legends for $150K more.

    That makes sense. I know I'm not an Oilers season ticket holder, so I wasn't able to buy at the Legends. So for most people interested in buying into the Ice District, this may be there one and only chance to buy a higher quality development in the area. The pricing does seem to reflect the potentially much larger market for those who want to purchase in the Ice District, but don't have season tickets.

    Has there been an announced, official, final height?

    I've heard 62, 64, now 69 and even a rumoured 72.

    I like the blinds. Adds cheap efficiency to the building and it breaks up the monotonous wall of glass.

    A pity that there are no plans for an observation deck on the top floor of Stantec. Missed opportunity if you ask me.

    Ya agree. Complicated to add dedicated elevator, but would have been a great tourist attraction.

    I'm still hoping someone builds a tower, like CN , Calgary, space needle, stratosphere, etc.

    Oh God no, don't include the Calgary tower, this should be an aspirational list!

    I suppose the Calgary Tower is ok, but it was built in the 1960's and is now much shorter than many of the surrounding office towers. Of course it is also actually not as tall as the Stantec Tower. All of those other "towers" were built in the 70's to the 90's. While they are arguably still landmarks for their cities, I sort of think the era and purpose of those type of structures is past - we seem to have the more pedestrian and ubiquitous cell towers instead now.

    I was up the Calgary Tower recently. I still very much enjoy it. It's very busy still. I've been going up there occasionally since it was built. (I was 13) Its always very interesting to see the new developments. I was noticing this last time the building where I worked my first job out of high school still stands. It was Sherwin-Williams Paints at the corner of McLeod Trail and 12 ave. (1973). I lived in a lot of different places and worked different jobs in Calgary and southern Alberta over the years. Lots of memories stirred by going up. Ok, back to the future. lol

    Just amazing IanO. So anxious for this project to be completed. To think that all this is only the first phase is mind boggling. We're going to have one seriously impressive skyline when all is said and done. Keep this in mind.

    1983 to 2011- Commerce Place was built. One tower... And a few condo towers, Icon?

    2011 to 2020- Epcor, Edmonton Tower, Stantec, JW Marriott tower, Arena,Tower B, Ultima, Encore, Fox 1, Fox2, Scotia Reclad, RAM, Enbridge Center, etc..

    2021 and beyond.. Phase 2 ICE district and possibly Alldritt..Whoa!!!

    The drive down 104th Ave is developing into a serious skyscraper power alley view especially around sunset.

    Also, it will be neat to see Stantec from Bruderheim and Stony Plain.
