Westrich Pacific has applied to rezone a parcel of land on the northwest corner of 100 Avenue and 112 Street to allow for a residential tower of up to 114 metres and 36 stories tall. The proposal also includes up to 2,700 square-feet of commercial space facing 100 Avenue, and four townhouse units facing 112 Street.

The Chris Dikeakos Architects-designed proposal - with the working name of "Grandin Tower 2" - is the latest in Westrich's series of Grandin City proposals, joining The View (currently under construction), and The Heights (rezoning approved in November 2019).

The scale of the proposal has increased fairly significantly since SkyriseEdmonton last looked at the proposal in April of 2019: Westrich has acquired an additional property to the north to increase the buildable area, upped the height from 88 metres and 28 stories to 114 metres and 36 stories, and increased the number of units from 210 to 310.
