EDMONTON | BMO/Tegler site | 175 M | 45-50 floors

Going up

Plans for the site are far from finalized but Regency has a vision of what will replace the old building.

The company is planning a mixed-use tower with commercial space on the main level, and a hotel and residential condominiums on top.

If approved, the new tower would be 45 to 50 storeys high, making it the tallest (untrue) condo building in Edmonton.

That's about what I'd expect for the site. If this was 10 years ago we'd be talking about how awesome it would be to see a breakthrough in height. Now with the airport closed, this is somehow a bit of a let down... I kid but only slightly. I am very curious to see the overall project though and how the Tegler vision is incorporated..

Edmonton is really hitting on all cylinders in regards to projects with nice height!

Who is this Ian anyways!

I always liked the BMO building. I was hoping they would just build on top of it given that it is built like a brick %*&#-house. Given the location it is perfect for something skyline defining.

Here is the Tegler building, the BMO building above replaced it.

It is quite obvious that the Tegler building should have never been demolished to make way for the BMO building. What a loss....

Even if they just rebuilt the podium of the base 3 floors, it would be a hell of a lot more warm and pedestrian friendly than the ice cube it will replace... I liked the BMO building myself but since it was of limited vision like Baccarat or Greyhound I don't mind it coming down for something WAY bigger and better!

Demolition is well underway now with a good amount of the work complete prior to the superstructure coming down.

BMO -

The projects listed in the Colliers report as under construction come onstream this year and next. Regency Developments’ proposed tower smack in the heart of the city’s financial district is targeted for 2022.

Raj Dhunna, Regency’s chief operating officer, seems unperturbed by the number of competing properties.

The company has two other projects also underway close to the downtown, one near the Brewery District and the other in the Oliver neighbourhood adjacent to the core. He says those experiences will help Regency stay flexible and learn what works and doesn’t work before finalizing the details on the 101 St. tower.

The as-yet-unnamed tower was expecting development permit approval as early as this month, Dhunna says.

The plan is to spend 18 months building an underground parkade on the former site of a BMO bank, and then start working on the above-ground portion which could include a 12-floor hotel and a 50-storey residential tower.

Differing views on downtown Edmonton

Dhunna is considering the possibility of that tower being purpose-built for the rental market.

“The millennials seem to not want to commit to the white picket fence or housing situation,” says Dhunna. “There’s a lot of potential for growth. We have 20,000 people working in our core every day but only a couple of thousand people living there.”

Just FYI but you wouldn't say Banque d'Montreal for the same reason you wouldn't say it's a apple.
