Edmonton - The transformation

Edmonton is likely not well known to you and often is under the radar...that is about to change.

Enjoy

Our main street, Jasper Avenue































City Hall and the CBD











































Ice District






Our newest 43 storey luxury condo, Encore.

Sweet pics! Thank you.
May I add that the era of having something to prove be put to rest?
Edmonton is Edmonton. Not over or under any radar. Just is.

Great tour Ian, man I love this picture. The JW Marriott and Stantec Tower glass looks amazing, hard to believe that they are only up 30-35% of the way

I have been to Edmonton in 2009 and I thought it was a pretty city, however Jasper Avenue needs to be more pedestrian friendly. it currently feels like walking on a highway when you walk up and down the footpaths there.

No kidding! It's all being redone in the next few years. It'll be much better.

Nice pictures. No, Edmonton is not well-known to me, but that may change indeed. I've thought about a trip to Edmonton to see the Flyers play there, and now with Rogers Place, it makes things easier. Why Edmonton? Because only a diehard fan would go see their team play there.

Edmonton is emerging as a truly great city, with a downtown seeing no shortage of renewal. Developers and business leaders are demonstrating great vision downtown.

New tallest hotel, new tallest residential and new tallest office (3 separate projects) are all going up at at once.
