While to many, Stantec Tower represents an A-plus addition to the Edmonton skyline, recent photos on our Forum appear to show what can only be described as a large "F" temporarily poised close to the top of the tower. Consisting of little more than a coincidence, as crews begin to remove outer wrappings from the facade, sightings of the giant letter has sparked a great deal of conversation (and puns) among our most devoted readership.

With glass now covering nearly every square inch of the facade, right up to the three-storey mechanical penthouse, views of the structure have begun to take on a different vibe. Nearly complete, and monolithic in its glassy, glossy, rectilinear glory, Stantec Tower has become a major fixture upon the Edmonton skyline.

The 251-metre, 66-storey, Stantec Tower, combining space for 1,500 employees alongside 483 condos, plus a mix of retail, dining, and a host of other services, is slated to transform more than just the skyline - bringing a real sense of immediacy to the recent intensification of the city's core. Confidently urban, and increasingly metropolitan, Edmonton has a lot to be thankful for in terms of the positive impacts that developments such as this have brought to the core over the last half-decade.

Visible from every corner of the city, Stantec Tower and its growing list of high-rise neighbours have brought about an inescapable sense of change to the city.
