RETAIL AND OFFICE SPACE DOWNTOWN IS EXPLODING — BUT WILL TENANTS SOON FILL IT?
BY STAFF • ARTICLE BY MEL PRIESTLEY

MARCH 1, 2018

As the city’s first big-city sized towers begin to throw shadows across downtown Edmonton, ‘For Lease’ signs hang prominently in shop windows on 104 Street, on Jasper Avenue on 99 Street and within City Centre Mall. To an untrained eye, on some streets at least, it can appear that more spaces are empty than occupied. But is downtown’s retail scene actually struggling? Or is it, as some experts say, in a “holding pattern” as we wait for buildings and an expected increase in people coming to fill them?
