Seven months since our last update, and progress at the site of ProCura Real Estates Services' 18-storey Central Tower at Century Park has been moving along nicely, the base of the structure having now broken above grade. Designed by Humphreys & Partners Architects and Manasc Isaac, the 176-unit rental tower was approved last June, the first phase of the Century Park project today having become a hive of activity as work crews busy themselves on-site.

Pictured above back in April, the construction site can be appreciated within its immediate urban context, the new Century Park neighbourhood having already begun to redevelop and densify at considerable speed. Located several kilometres south of downtown within the heart of suburban Ermineskin at 109 St NW and 25 Ave NW, Century Park's will inject a blast of urbanity into the otherwise solidly low-rise, residential neighbourhood.

Set to eventually be built out to nearly 4,000 residential units, Century Park will one day become a massive high-density residential development, rivalling similar efforts closer to the core such as the ICE District.

To become a city unto itself, the build out will include a host of services and retail, residents to be well-connected to the city via Century Park Station.

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.
