We last reported on Cove Properties' Artika about two months ago, when construction on the underground parkade was just underway. Now, the building is quickly rising above grade.

Located on 103 Avenue and 112 Street in Oliver, the six-storey, Brian Allsopp Architect-designed building is being quickly assembled from prefabricated modules by Giusti North, which also provided prefab modules for Capital downtown.

Exterior finishes, according to renderings of the project, appear to be mostly EIFS stucco with ample wood accents and what appears to be corrugated steel cladding the top two floors.

When complete, Artika will bring 34 residential units to the dense residential area, including six ground-level townhouse units. Future residents will be ideally located close to downtown, MacEwan University, Oliver Square, and a future Valley Line LRT stop once the west extension gets underway.

SkyriseEdmonton will continue to follow the project as it progresses. More information and images can also be found in the project Database entry linked below. What do you think of Artika? Drop us a comment below, or join the conversation in our Forum!
