The Stantec Tower in Edmonton’s downtown Ice District has reached 54 storeys (197 metres). It will continue to rise three metres each week to a total of 251 metres. Once complete, the Stantec Tower will be 66 storeys high, making it the tallest building in the city and tallest in the country outside Toronto.

Stantec Tower will be home to commercial development and mixed-use workplaces, multi-family residences and retail space. Atop of the commercial level sits SKY Residences condominiums, featuring 483 premium residential suites with luxury lifestyle facilities. Resident’s will have access to 20,000 sq. ft. of amenity space including a hot tub, fitness facilities, a billiards lounge, yoga/Pilates studio and more.

Located on the corner of 102 Street and 103 Ave, Stantec Tower is expected to be topped off this fall, with the first residents being Stantec Edmonton personnel, who will be moving into their new headquarters in the fall.

“Employees from across Stantec have a lot of pride in our new company headquarters, a project our architects and engineers have worked on for the past four years,” says Stantec president and chief executive officer, Gord Johnston. “We have watched the Stantec tower grow from our ground breaking in 2015 to the topping off of the commercial portion of the building in November 2017. Today, our head office makes history, becoming the tallest tower in Edmonton, and we won’t stop growing for months.”

Since groundbreaking, Stantec has provided full architecture and engineering services and the Tower has been designed to be sustainable and energy efficient, with a target to be LEED® Gold Certified. PCL Construction is general contractor.
