Lots of visuals presented at the EDC meeting; unfortunately I wasn't able to photograph any, but did pick up a supplemental package, which had a few:

Notes:
  • Will remain office
  • Building will be stripped to its frame. Everything including the mechanicals will be removed and replaced.
  • Main office lobby entrance will be off 103 Ave
  • Podium levels will be clad in clear glazing, "everything will flow from the outside to the inside"
  • Parkade to be clad in metal screening, approx 50% coverage, lighted inside to add visual interest from the outside
  • The space between the tower and parkade will be improved into a more inviting "mews" type area
  • Retail space to be reduced overall, with the bank occupying much of the south podium, and a new retail space added to the north "mews"
  • Second floor will be amenity space, third floor conference space with rooftop amenities
  • Considering digital screens that flow with continuous imagery from outside to the inside

One of the EDC members did ask about adding retail to 103 Ave; the applicant is keeping it open space for now but will consider retail in the future. They said the market isn't there yet given how much new retail space has recently and will be opening up soon.

Seems short-sighted to me, though, especially given this redevelopment will be a net reduction in street-fronting retail on 101 St.

The design is a little exaggerated for human scale -- its going to be hard to get people to sit outside here -- maybe some trees would help.

Dialog F. Cavaliere left the meeting due to a conflict.

MOVED: C. Craig
The Edmonton Design Committee supports the architectural components of the submission; namely, the recladding of the building and parkade.

This motion does not support the design of the public realm (including the plaza along 101 Street and 103 Avenue, and the streetscaping along 103 Avenue and 102 Street), due to a lack of sufficient clarity or resolution regarding:
● Soil cells - clarity required on the use of soil cells for boulevard trees, in light of details showing the use of a soil trench.
● Raised planters - the Committee is concerned with the design of raised planters, along the east and north sides of the building. In particular, the Committee is concerned that the proposed tree species (Amur Maple) are not of sufficient stature for the scale of the space, and that growing conditions for the trees (lack of sunlight, sufficient soil volume or irrigation) are inadequate.
● Raised planters - the Committee is concerned that the design of the ‘trunk’ creates a trip hazard, and that this design should be reconsidered.
● Planters along 103 Avenue (parkade) - The Committee is concerned that the growing conditions for plant material (lack of sunlight, sufficient soil volume or irrigation) are inadequate.
● Lighting at NW corner adjacent to Starbucks - There is a lack of information on the proposed lighting strategy for this portion of the site that the Committee feels may experience some safety issues. Please update Page 10 of the Supplementary Package to illustrate the type and location of lighting in this location.
● Proposed lighting pole (Page 10, Supplementary Package) - it is not clear where the proposed lights are to be located.
● ‘Seat lighting’ (Page 10, Supplementary Package) - There is no description, precedent imagery or other means to understand this proposed lighting type.
● The Public Realm design requires a comprehensive Lighting strategy/plan which includes lighting fixture/ design for the Exterior of the Parkade Façade.
● Wind impact - the Committee is concerned that the removal of the existing podium will exacerbate downdrafts at this windy locations. The Committee wishes the Applicant to prepare a wind impact statement that identifies and incorporates mitigative measures which ensure the functionality of the public realm.

SECONDED: D. Deshpande
