The City of Edmonton will be hosting a drop-in engagement session in regards to rezoning plans now up for review for the proposed 35-storey Mackenzie Tower. Interested members of the public are encouraged to attend the meeting next week on Tuesday, February 26 at First Presbyterian Church (10025 105 St), from 6-8PM. Attendees will be given the opportunity to have their questions and concerns about the project addressed by city staff and other officials who will be in attendance. Feedback gathered at the session will be recorded and reviewed in detail by city staff and urban planners at City Hall.

Spearheaded by Groupe Germain, Urban Capital, and Limak Investments, the 35-storey, mixed-use, hotel-and-condo combination high-rise would replace a low-rise, mid-century commercial building and an adjacent parking lot. Altogether, the project would combine 156 hotel rooms with 136 condo units, all of which would rise above a three-storey podium. Surrounded on all sides by early 20th century warehouse buildings, the decision to set the tower back from its podium has been made in order to better ingratiate the high-rise into the streetscape.
