    Another important factor is that our skyline and Calgary compliment each other. It illustrates Alberta is robust and healthy economically. One just has to to see the skylines of both cities. Before, Calgary showed the wealth, and every other richest showed ragsll. Just slightly off topic, I hope it is a Calgary/Edmonton cooperation for the winter Olympic bid. It would be a great strategy to showcase the economic engine and potential of the corridor; and of course the two skylines to the world. There is a great potential postcard here...

    I have to admit. This Aldritt project makes me think of mini Dubai--not that Dubai itself will notice. This is a very outlandish project that even Toronto skyscraper enthusiasts would slobber over.

    Using JW as a reference in height for statec, i tell myself "holy sh**" everytime. Manulife looks like just another building now.
    It's great isn't it. Just picture the highest point of the Alberta Legislature (57m) on top of JW and there you have the approx. height of Stantec.
    My "holy sh**" moment is picturing Icon II on top of Stantec tower's transfer slab, which already stands at the height of the neighbouring Bell Tower.
    With tower b , receiving a total redesign (apparently) and with this mighty rumored "trophy tower". This could be just the tip of the iceberg. Who knows what downtown will look like in 2025....

    A trophy tower is welcome, but they better have something up their sleeves as you need relocation, local corporate transition- expansion- or recruit for that to happen.

    Well with the new arena in Edmonton it would make sense to hold a number of events here. However Olympic politics and sense don't always mix.

    The floor that is about to be enclosed is the top residential floor. Currently pouring above is the last concrete floor slab where mechanical equipment will reside on. That will be covered by a crown two storeys high--that will then be the final architectural height.

    The slenderness of this thing is as welcome as the height, or perhaps the height is what gives it it's slender look.

    New condominium apartment sales in Edmonton grew over 60% in 2017, the largest percentage growth of the markets tracked, with 1,289 units sold last year. This significant increase was connected to the downtown condo market where the new Rogers Centre attracted buyers to the city’s core, with sales increasing by 160% year over year. The suburban areas of Edmonton were still dealing with a large supply of inventory and sales were relatively flat compared to 2016.

    Tell that to the Bow lol. It is a skinny foot print although height would create some illussions of that.

    Hopefully tower B will add to that perception.

    Hard to imagine Alldritt to be almost 25 stories taller than this beauty.
