Stantec has announced the signing of a major lease for their global headquarters with Katz Group and WAM Development Group through an affiliate of the EAD Joint Venture. The new building will be situated within the Edmonton Arena District.
The new tower will consolidate Stantec’s five locations in Edmonton to one, and is a true commitment to the city’s downtown.
“This agreement represents our commitment to the community of Edmonton and the downtown redevelopment,” said Bob Gomes, president and CEO of Stantec. “Our decision is the result of an intensive selection process over the last year, and we are looking forward to moving ahead with design and construction.”
Preliminary designs are underway and further information on the project will be available at a press conference to be held at the end of August 2014.
“On behalf of the Edmonton Arena District, we are very pleased Stantec chose to partner with us,” said Darren Durstling, president and CEO of WAM Development Group. “We are confident this building will be the cornerstone of Stantec’s continued success and that it will drive the entire Edmonton Arena District development forward in ways that will benefit Edmonton and Edmontonians for generations to come.”
The Edmonton Arena District will be a dynamic, mixed-use urban destination that will help transform and revitalize downtown Edmonton. Anchored by a vibrant public plaza and Rogers Place arena, the Edmonton Arena District will offer an integrated mix of retail, office, hotel, residential and entertainment venue space.
