More than three months since our last update, and the latest photos of Symphony Tower highlight the extent to which the high-rise, townhouse, and heritage revitalization project has become the new face of Rossdale. While work on the latter remains to be completed, the 27-storey tower, its bright blue and grey livery, has effectively made quite an impression upon the local streetscape.

The tallest of its kind in the neighbourhood, Symphony Tower can be seen from numerous vantage points. Looming large over the Rossdale and nearby Legislative Buildings, Symphony Tower has become a neighbourhood fixture - part of the downtown south end's ongoing revitalization.

Located at the corner of 106 St NW and 97 Ave NW, the well-situated, multi-faceted development by KENNEDY has been designed to blend into its surroundings, while still making a statement. To this end, the integration of the 1907 Foot House and 1913 Parkview Apartments has gone a long way to achieving this goal.

Home to nearly 200 new residents, spread across 143 units, Symphony Tower will help enliven the neighbourhood - one that up until recently was dominated by the Legislature and nearby government offices. 

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.
