EDMONTON (November 18, 2015) – ICE District Joint Venture announced today that Sorrell Financial has agreed to lease office space in the Edmonton Tower. Sorrell Financial, who plans to move its headquarters to the new building, is scheduled to move into the 27 storey tower in early 2017.

Set to open in fall 2016, the Edmonton Tower is a state-of-the-art structure that is an integral component of ICE District. Located at the corner of 101st St. and 104th Ave., the Tower is being built to LEED Gold standards and is currently 80 per cent leased with the City of Edmonton as its anchor tenant.

“Sorrell Financial is very proud to be part of ICE District and the future of downtown Edmonton,” said Peter Sorrell, Founder and CEO, Sorrell Financial. “ICE District and the Edmonton Tower provide an ideal atmosphere for our business, one that is energetic, professional, and forward-thinking.”

“We’re excited to welcome yet another established Edmonton institution to ICE District,” said Darren Durstling, President and CEO of WAM Development Group and joint venture partner of ICE District. “The central location of this prestigious property is proving to be a big draw for tenants, as it provides the added advantage of easy access to the best entertainment, dining and lifestyle conveniences Edmonton has to offer.”

Edmonton’s ICE District will be Canada’s largest mixed-use sports and entertainment district.
