The City of Edmonton, the province and Canada’s largest polytechnic are closing in on a significant land deal linked to the Blatchford project.
Mayor Don Iveson cryptically spoke about “protracted negotiations” between the city, Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and the province at Wednesday’s council meeting regarding “the opportunity for NAIT to consolidate many of its different campuses to a central location contiguous to their main campus.”
Blatchford, a 217-hectare eco-friendly development on the site of the former Edmonton Airport which, once complete, will be home to up 30,000 residents, borders NAIT to the north and the west.
