Nearly a month since our last update, and the ever-rising Hat at Five Corners is continuing to impress as photo after photo appears on our Forum. A standalone structure in an otherwise high-rise free district of the city, the 24-storey, 199-unit residential tower by Cidex Group and NORR Architects has seemingly captured the imaginations of local photogs.

To be clad in a stark contrast of white and black spandrel, Hat at Five Corners will likely be a standout structure within Edmonton's predominantly low-rise Five Corners district for years to come. Situated just east of the core, at the convoluted intersection of Jasper Ave, 102 Ave NW, and 95 St NW, the irregularly-shaped plot upon which the tower rises has offered the tower a prime central spot within what will soon become a bustling up-and-coming neighbourhood.

Caught between Boyle Street and Riverdale, and within easy walking distance of downtown, Hat at Five Corners will also serve to knit together a handful of diverse areas into one much more cohesive continuum. Close as well to transit, and very quick to the core via a car, Hat at Five Corners will be popular among urban professionals.

Captured at Golden Hour, Hat at Five Corners cuts an impressive figure on the local skyline. Set to become a prime address for its up to 250 residents, the development appears to well on its way towards topping off.
