Following the recent announcement by Toronto developer Brad Lamb that the 45-storey North Condos development slated for downtown Edmonton was back on track, it appears that another of Lamb Corp's Edmonton projects, the 37-storey Jasper House, will proceed as well. In conversation with the Edmonton Journal last week, Lamb went on record stating his belief that the province's fortunes will return, and that the time is right to get these two projects underway.
Located along a relatively sleepy stretch of Jasper Avenue just outside the core, Jasper House will occupy roughly one third of a longstanding parking lot. The 37-storey luxury condo tower will soon become the tallest structure amid a local landscape that is currently dominated by non-descript low-rise office blocks and surface lots. Situated on a major bus route and likely set to inherit a great deal of above-ground parking space, the new development will place residents within easy striking distance of downtown.
Slated for completion in 2020, a year later than originally expected due to the recent hiatus, the finished product will include 240 one- to three-bedroom units. The development will bring roughly 400-500 new residents to the area.
SkyriseEdmonton will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
