Stantec Tower is a mixed-use skyscraper currently under construction in the Ice District in downtown Edmonton, Alberta. As of 23 May 2018, when it reached a construction height of 197 m (646.3 ft), it surpassed the JW Marriott Edmonton Ice District & Residences and became the tallest building in Edmonton.[7] The office area of the tower is expected to open in 2018,[8][9] and the residential portion in 2019.[8][9] Once completed, Stantec Tower will be 250.9 m (823.2 ft) tall, making it the tallest building in Canada outside Toronto.[2] The 66-storey tower will consist of retail space, offices, and 454 residential units. It will house the headquarters of Stantec. Located close to Rogers Place, home of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, it will be in the heart of the newly created Ice District.

Construction[edit]

Construction started in the fall of 2014,[2] completing foundation works and moving above grade in August 2016.[10] The project reached a milestone when it topped out the 30th floor, marking the top of the commercial and office floors, in November 2017.[11]

Stantec Tower had reached its 30th floor just 14 days after its next door neighbour, JW Marriott Edmonton Ice District & Residences, had become the tallest building in Edmonton.[12] Both these construction projects continued adding floors, with the JW Marriott Edmonton Ice District & Residences reaching its full height (192.15 m (630.4 ft)) in March 2018.[13] Stantec Tower added structural steel for its 54th floor on 23 May 2018, bringing its height to 197 m (646.3 ft) and becoming the tallest building in Edmonton,[7] with work continuing upward on the residential floors.
