EDMONTON | Aldritt Tower | 280m | 919ft | 80 fl | App

Proposed 80-storey tower would smash Western Canada height records

East downtown residents are getting word they could one day have a record-breaking neighbour. Alldritt Land Corp. is pitching an 80-storey mixed residential tower that could end up as much as 29 metres taller than the Ice District’s 251-metre Stantec tower, still under construction, but billed as the tallest tower in Western Canada. Public open house notices went out this week and quickly spread on social media. “Whatever they are smoking, I want some,” said one commenter on the Riverdale Facebook group. The Alldritt Tower is planned for contaminated land just up the hill from Louise McKinney Park and includes a public park connection between the Shaw Conference Centre and the river valley.

Here is the rest of the article: http://edmontonjournal.com/news/loca...height-records

I personally find it hard to believe that Aldritt would build an 80 floor skyscraper; but who knows, they might surprise me.

We now have some images of the proposed Alldritt Tower for Edmonton!

This is the base of the tower, keep in mind that those buildings behind the tower do not exist.

Holy HOT potatoes. Wow Edmonton.
I think Edmonton's skyline might surpass Calgary.
And this is excluding ICE District and the other skyscrapers planned for downtown.

Plans for 80-Storey Quarters Tower Progress
Quote:
Renderings for an 80-storey tower surfaced online last fall, putting Edmonton's planners, architects, and urbanists in a frenzy over its transformative potential. Put forth by Alldritt Land Corporation and architectural practice KENNEDY, the skyscraper proposed for a site just east of the Shaw Conference Centre could become the tallest building not only in Edmonton, but in Western Canada.

"Edmonton" won't build this, the developer will. And if the city of Edmonton council gives the project the green light why won't it be built?

^ Edmonton grew by 300,000 in the last 10 years and you say there is not enough demand. We'll see about that...
