The Icon Towers are a complex of two residential towers in downtown Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The towers are currently Edmonton's tallest residential buildings after they were completed in 2010.[2] The north tower, with 35 floors, has a height of 112 metres (367 ft) and the south tower, with 30 floors, has a height of 92 metres (302 ft).[3] Tower I was completed in 2009, and II was completed in 2010. In the podium, there is street front retail, along with offices in the other floors between the retail and condos.

The buildings are on the emerging trendy 104 Street "Fourth Street Promenade" north of Jasper Avenue.[4]
