Sky Residences at Ice District (March 2019 Update)

Posted by Brooke Forrester on Monday, October 7, 2019 12:52pm

The "Ice District" has been the center of every conversation surrounding downtown Edmonton since the plans for Rogers Place were announced. Great news for Edmonton, and a fantastic opportunity to revitalize our downtown core that before this was quickly becoming a ghost town. Edmonton's downtown core is in the middle of a rapid transformation, with over $5 billion worth of developments planned, underway or recently completed between now and 2020. Rogers Place and Ice District are already buzzing, making the downtown core the place to be with still so much to come.

I had the opportunity along with some of my colleagues from Century 21 Masters to be one of the first visit to the new Stantec Tower and get a preview of Sky Residences at Ice District as well as some of the amenities that this building will have to offer. This may already be one of the most sought after buildings in downtown Edmonton. I say this because many of the units on the lower floors have already been sold to eager investors.

The Stantec Tower will house 66 stories of mixed-use Real Estate including the Sky Residences at Ice District, and when completed will be the tallest standing structure in Edmonton and for that matter the tallest standing structure in Canada west of Toronto. That's something that Stantec and the City of Edmonton can be proud of.

The presentation center is located at Rogers Place, or you can reach out to me for more information on this significant new development. 780.667.4020.

Stantec Tower will house 29 Storeys of Commercial workspace and will be home to Stantec's 1500 Edmonton based employees.

Rising above the Commercial Space up to the 30th Floor you will find 20,000 sqft of Amenities from a Billiards Lounge to Outdoor Firepits with a view.

From the 31st floor on you will find Sky Residences at Ice District. 1 Bedrooms to 2 Bedrooms + Den take up the 31st to 60th floors. Above the 60th floor, you will find Sky Residences Penthouses with forever views of the City of Edmonton from every angle.

If you're looking for your next home or investment property, Sky Residences has the answer.

If you live in Edmonton, then you may already know that the Ice District started with Edmonton Oilers owner Daryl Katz. The Katz Group then partnered with the City of Edmonton to build Rogers Place, the primary catalyst for ICE District.

In 2012, Katz Group joined forces with ONE Properties (formerly WAM Development Group) to create ICE District Properties, the vibrant mixed-use developments surrounding Rogers Place.

Together they are set to complete the vision and develop a new downtown district that brings Edmonton together and attracts visitors to our world-class city. 

The first stop of our tour was to the Sales Center located at Rogers Place (10210 104 Avenue) situated between the Grand Villa Casino and the South Entrances to Rogers Place. A friendly knowledgeable sales team greeted us. "Excitement lives here" was a common theme of the presentation. Ensuring we knew that ICE District has buzzworthy restaurants and cafes, ongoing Oilers games, concerts, cultural events, shopping and the Grand Villa Casino. Also, when you roam ICE District, you'll stay connected with Wi-FI thanks to state-of-the-art fibre optic cabling running through the community.

What I got from the presentation was that living in Stantec Tower means living in a tower designed for winter living. ICE District provides a convenient, direct inside connection to downtown Edmonton's above-ground Pedway system. Shed your winter coat and explore in the climate-controlled comfort or easily hop onto the LRT steps away and get anywhere else quickly.





The Stantec Tower Lobby

After a short walk over to Stantec Tower, our first stop was to view the 16 Million Dollar lobby, designed by no other than Daryl Katz himself. (Seen below). A fresh contemporary look, welcoming to residents and professionals alike. A hotel-inspired Grand Lobby with a friendly concierge to greet your guests. A great start to what the Stantec Tower at ICE District had to offer.


Sneak Peak: Ice District Public Plaza & Food Hall

The next stop on tour was the Stantec Tower Food Hall overlooking what will be the ICE District Public Plaza.

The 50,000 square-foot public plaza is encircled by Stantec Tower, the JW Marriot Hotel and Rogers Place and is expected to be programmed year-round with activities such as concerts, movies, shows and of course televised Edmonton Oiler games.

Surrounding the public plaza, you will find retail stores and restaurants to add to the already buzzworthy energy of ICE District.

The ICE District Public Plaza is expected to open sometime in 2019.

The Food Hall on the 2nd Floor of Stantec Tower is not your average "Food Court." It overlooks the Public Plaza and is sure to impress Foodies everywhere.

It was communicated to us that this is not "Fast Food," but that the food hall in the Stantec Tower will be "Good Food, Fast." So don't expect to see the big Fast Food names filling this space.

The Stantec Tower food hall will be the only Food Hall licensed in Alberta, with a Wine & Beer station in the center of the hall as well as a Cocktail & Tapas Bar.

You can look forward to Good Food-Fast, from restaurants such as Hula Poke, Dirt Belly, Chachi's and more!

SKY Residences at ICE District

The last stop on our tour, and of course the most important were the show suites on the 31st floor of Stantec Tower. With Sleek designs and a choice of three palettes, it is clear that SKY is taking luxury living to new heights. Each show suite we viewed was warm and inviting with a beautiful view of the City of Edmonton and ICE District. With contemporary designer style kitchens that feature exquisite quartz counter-tops, glass tile back-splashes, soft close cabinetry, and a kitchen or mobile island you genuinely feel like you are living above the rest. Step into your indulgent ensuite featuring soaker tubs with rainfall showerheads, ceramic wall tiles, vanity mirrors with integrated sidelights and quartz countertops you'll feel like you spent the day at the spa. Smartly tailored suites, 9' ceiling heights in the main living areas, engineered flooring, solid core interior doors and individually controlled forced air and cooling systems, the SKY Residences are a step above when it comes to condo living.

Penthouses start on the 60th floor and go up to the 66th Floor. These are the best views in ICE District.

Views from the 31st Floor

Take a moment to appreciate the views. I love the views, even scared of heights the views just from the 31st floor made me breathless. I can only imagine what the view from 35 stories higher would have been like.

Another positive about SKY Residences at ICE District

Each unit has dramatic outdoor balconies with panoramic views of ICE District and the City Of Edmonton Skylines.
