    ^showing off prudent design decisions that still accomplish great design/look is what great consultants do.

      Stantec is more about community integration and sustainability than it is about being flashy.

      They wouldn't move into a windowless bunker not just because it would be horrid for the staff but because it would be horrid for the area they move into. That type of design would harm the area.

      I think they are simply being holistic about the whole thing.

        That said, would like to see 102 Centre win out here.

          Hub-bub around the arena district aside - there are some big holes (said in all meanings of the word) still to be filled on or near Jasper Ave.

          Some, right on LRT stops ...

          Just sayin'

                With a Tenant and ask as large of this could an office tower on 109 and Jasper over teh LRT tracks now be viable?!

                      The only area of Jasper and 109 that could handle an office tower is Canterra Centre, and that probably won't be redeveloped for a very long time.

                      We are destined to have the neutered Mayfair North on that lot.
                      Don't feed the trolls!

                        There's the Melcor lot next to RBC.

                        Procura had some tower proposals on Jasper Ave (Hotel Mac park, theatre/Hat lot)...but given the turds they're crapping out lately, I hope they sell their lands and leave town.

                          The timing of Stantec's leases expiring and the timelines to build a tower in the Arena district seem to be quite close. I would bet on that AED Tower unless something else comes out of the woodwork.

                            Don't discount either.

                              Maybe they will occupy something new on Gateway boulevard or similar? While Stantec are one of the few who have stayed downtown, it wouldn't surprise me to see them move closer to PCL and other construction companies. I hope they stay downtown, but suburban might be cheaper.

                                I wonder if having a company in direct competition like Jacobs in town with their name on an office tower will make Stantec lean towards the same.
