AIMCo to redevelop Edmonton’s HSBC Bank Place
Faced with stiff competition for tenants from ICE District and other new office developments in downtown Edmonton, the Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo) says it will completely redevelop its HSBC Bank Place tower in the downtown business sector.

The renovations will upgrade HSBC Bank Place from a class-A office building to class-AA. AIMCo says. Preliminary work got underway in June, with completion set for late 2019.

AIMCo bought HSBC Place along with another downtown tower, Enbridge Place, in February 2017 from former owner Dream Office REIT (D-UN-T), when it divested itself of four major properties in the Alberta capital.

Reports at the time indicated HSBC Place was sold for $35 million as the city’s economy continued to slump in the face of a downturn in the oil and resource sector.

AIMCo has yet to announce its plans for Enbridge Place, though it has said it would also be slated for redevelopment.

HSBC Bank Place, a 317,000-square-foot building at the corner of 103rd Avenue and 101st Street in Edmonton’s financial district, will undergo a complete exterior and interior redevelopment which will include:

– a triple-glazed curtain wall system;
– floor-to-ceiling view glass in the office area;
– new mechanical and electrical systems;
– and a revitalized two-storey lobby.

I like that they are making the redo effort. I still have big concerns for their wind-blown-susceptible street plaza. I like that they seem to be paying some attention to the adjacent parking structure; although an alternative might be to tear it down, put parking below grade and develop a mixed use tower above with retail/hospitality and residential -- a scheme like that could add a lot to the value of their office building reno.

Short-sighted (and short-sited) if they do not replace the whole parkade with better land use (probably won't happen); just as short-sighted to not enliven the street with fronting retail and hospitality. It makes one wonder, @Daveography, who runs these companies and what their real qualifications are.
