  • Stantec Tower | 250.8 m, 823', 69 floors | under construction

    Stantec looking for new headquarters, and that could mean building an office tower
    http://www.edmontonjournal.com/busin...808/story.html

    Stantec is looking for about 300,000 square feet of space with flexibility to go up to 400,000 square feet although a developer may propose a larger building with room for other tenants.

    By comparison, Epcor Tower, Edmonton’s newest office highrise building has 625,000 square feet of space.

    Stantec’s other criteria include a minimum floor plate of 25,000 square feet, with adequate transit and transportation services, and amenities such as a daycare or fitness facility.

    The location could be either downtown or suburban.

    “At this point in time, we’re open to whatever proposals come along the way,” Shillington said.

    Not high on Stantec’s requirements is flashy architecture, he added.

    “Again, it’s going to depend on what comes back and what developers are prepared to do to meet our needs, but to be honest, are we looking for the iconic ‘wow?’,” he asked.

    “That’s actually not Stantec. That’s not our culture.”

    Sounds very promising, they are a true hometown success story and hope they remain downtown. They should go in the Edmonton Arena District tower D

      ^ The initial design for Tower D definitely would fall in line with what they were saying about how the tower doesn't need to be ultra-flashy.

      Considering the number of office tower developments currently in the works, there likely will be fierce competition for this one. I just pray to God that Stantec doesn't opt for a campus option.

        Agreed, 102 St Centre would be a lot more flashier, either way, the City can take a tower and they can take a tower, I don't care who goes where

          Could be looking at 2-4 towers being built in the next 24-36 months.

            Agreed, i dont care what the tower looks like if a suburban style office is on the table, as long as the stay downtown (i know their one location west of 109th isnt exactly downtown, but still)

              Loosing them from DT would be horrid.... but since they demand good alt transport options there are not many choices.

              Please write Stantec and ask them to stay DT.

              Manu II seems like the best immediate fit and a very strong contender.

                Keeping options open is a good thing for the process, but I cannot see them leaving downtown/central Edmonton.

                I hope they kick off tower D or AIMCO.

                  It would be nice if they could stay in the downtown core. Although if their heart was set on moving out of the downtown, I wonder if they would be interested in setting up in a new campus style around the LRT NAIT station.
                  LRT is our future, time to push forward.

                        I'm speculating that the leading contenders are AED/Katz, AIMCo, Kelley Ramsey and Performing Arts/Stationlands

                          any headquarters has to be in downtown only because we need downtown growth.
