Would give The Pearl a couple of buddies in the neighbourhood.

So the Mac's would survive, but the 1990s Po-Mo 1-story office building would be gone?

I kinda hope that the rest of Jasper Avenue both east and west gets filled in with similar sized towers over the next few years. Even if these buildings are relatively inefficient, damn they are sexy!

So many single storey buildings along Jasper Ave from 112-124street, it will be nice to see some good height go up in the area.

Also Regency did a great job with the Pearl, so I am glad they are the developer.

The design is MEH, but it would be nice to see the Jasper Avenue corridor filled in with similarly sized buildings all the way from 82 to 124th...

Agree the design is meh, but the height is very impressive. It is nice to see taller towers starting of take advantage of height since the muni closed.

I'm starting to think that a lot of developers were waiting for the inevitable closing of the municipal airport before going full bore with their projects. Like, they were chomping at the bit to get in there but had to wait for that closure.

That would explain Edmonton's lackluster skyline (until recent projects, I mean) It's a boomtown and really should have been much more developed than it has been. Now it's suddenly being flooded with tall buildings even though the market was always there.

Does anyone know if the developer own or plan on picking up the rest of the block along Jasper for a sequel tower just to the east? Because to me that would explain why they dropped one tower from the project...

Emerald Tower by Regency Edmonton

City of Edmonton should review the engineering details before any approval takes place. Will the builder use adequate sized generators and keep fans running during construction to keep building clean. Any building project needs to have adequate officials checking to ensure approval conditions are met continually.
