In Instagram and Facebook posts made last Friday, local real estate agent Chris Karampelas of Karampelas & Executives announced a new commercial development proposal slated for the southwest corner of Jasper Avenue and 114 Street.
Developed by St. George’s Greek Orthodox Community of Edmonton and designed by OCI architecture, renderings of the project - titled 14 - show a 3-storey building with striking curves in what appear to be white brick, overhanging the ground level which is clad in transparent glazing.
According to the social media posts, the building will offer approximately 39,000 square-feet of commercial retail and office space, underground parking, as well as an outdoor terrace on the third level, and is targeting BOMA Gold certification.
The site is currently host to a surface parking lot, formerly part of the Edmonton Motors dealership. The bulk of that site is slated for a major redevelopment directly next door to this proposal. Another major tower development, Emerald Tower, is also slated kitty-corner to the northeast.
According to Karampelas, construction is set to begin in early 2021 with completion later that year or early 2022.
SkyriseEdmonton will continue to follow this project as it progresses. More images and information on this and related projects can be found in the project Database entries below. What do you think of 14? Drop us a comment below, or join the conversation in our discussion Forum!
EDITOR'S NOTE: A previous version of this article credited Karampelas & Executives as the developer; the project is in fact being developed by St. George’s Greek Orthodox Community of Edmonton. Additionally, the article has been updated to indicate that the building will have its own underground parking, and not utilizing parking at St Joseph's Basilica as previously implied. SkyriseEdmonton regrets these errors.
