Checking In With Edmonton's Ice District

Quote:
A major mixed-use redevelopment is transforming a 25-acre-plus tract of downtown Edmonton. Bounded by 101 and 104 Streets NW, and 105 and 103 Avenues NW, Ice District will add several new towers and a major sporting and cultural institution to the city, all within steps of the newly opened Metro Line of the Edmonton LRT.

Vision 2020 Imagines Lively Future for Northlands

Quote:
Vision 2020 completely re-imagines how Northlands could look in a future without the Oilers or horse racing. The plan looks to draw in even more activity and events through the creation of an ice tournament centre, an urban festival site connected to nearby Borden Park, and a new concert and events venue inside the Expo Centre.

In a design collaboration between BBB Architects and Dialog Architects, the Ice Coliseum repurposes Rexall Place and divides it into seven ice sheets for community and tournament use, including curling and minor hockey, with the goal of helping to make Edmonton the tournament capital of Canada.

Checking In With the Topped-Off Hendrix


Quote:
When we last reported on Edgar Development's 'The Hendrix' in Edmonton three months ago, the 30-storey Dialog Architects-designed rental apartment tower was just shy of topping off. In the time since that update, the project has reached its final height on 111 Street NW, and its tower crane has been disassembled and removed, marking two major milestones in The Hendrix's construction.

Rogers Place Receives Bold Exterior Branding

Quote:
Giant red letters spelling out 'ROGERS PLACE' have been installed on the sleek exterior of Edmonton's new arena. It's the latest in a series of accelerating milestones for the project — following the hoisting of the National Hockey League's largest high-definition scoreboard — in advance of the futuristic facility's September opening. The 18,641-seat venue is the sports backbone of the transformative Ice District, the mixed-use skyscraping neighbourhood that is pumping new life into the downtown core.

Preserved Buena Vista Facade to Grace New Residential Tower

Quote:
The team behind the 30-storey Hendrix building in Edmonton is bringing another highrise development to the city, this time at the corner of 124 Street NW and 102 Avenue NW. The proposed 85-metre project involves the careful dismantling of the north, south, and west facades of the existing Buena Vista building, which will be applied to the base of a 27-storey tower.

ProCura Development Brings Rental Units to Jasper Avenue

Quote:
Jasper Avenue is Edmonton's main street. Slicing through the downtown core, it is populated on either side by highrise towers, heritage buildings, and vibrant commercial outlets. Jasper Avenue's wide selection of amenities and conveniences attracted leading Alberta developer ProCura, who has invested in the high-growth area by building the ten-storey Mayfair on Jasper complex.

Still looks awesome though and the angle doesn't really show the extent to which this arena is different to the station in Birmingham.

BOK Center looks nice but it doesn't interact with the surrounding urban pedestrian scale environment. That building should never have been approved for the environment it's in, the building looks like it was meant to be in the suburbs. At least Rogers Place interacts with the area around it. The video screens facing the street will create an enjoyable experience for pedestrians.

The Brimmingham street station uses polished mirror-like stainless steel while Rogers Place's stainless steel cladding has a dull matt finish. Both buildings serve completely different purposes.

Here is a video of someone driving east down 104th Ave. towards Rogers Place in Edmonton. It will gives a good sense of the kind of impact this Rogers Place will have in the area.

BOK Center was actually built on top of countless parking lots. There was no surrounding urban pedestrian scale environment when it was built. The BOK Center actually created its own district surrounding the stadium, the BOK Center District.

The pictures above are simple Google Image searches so they're pretty outdated in terms of showing what's nearby. And Tulsa is a car-centric city so you still need tons of parking nearby to accomodate the 19,000+ people who come for concerts. I'm glad they built it in Downtown (adding activity to the core) while still keeping it far enough away that there was no risk of parking lots for the stadium replacing old historic structures in Blue Dome, Brady Arts or the Art Deco District.

Urban planning policies are stuck in the 1990s in many places in the US. Tulsa (1.0 million) is only a slightly smaller metro than Edmonton (1.3 million) but you'd never know it looking at them. Edmonton is far more urban than Tulsa and comes across as a much larger metro due to the urban planning policies in place.

Canadian metros are generally denser and more urbanized that American metros of the same size. A few US metros buck that pattern: NYC, Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco. Places like Cleveland, Sacramento, Dallas, and Denver are more typical of US urban planning.

Heady times for Edmonton. It's easily one of the fastest, if not the fastest, growing metros in NA in percentage terms. Edmonton could see the number of 100m+ buildings double over the next 5-6 years. You'd be hard pressed to find another metro that can say that.

I've never been to Edmonton but would Jasper Avenue have a similar function as Yonge in Toronto or St. Catherines in Montreal?
