Monday, October 6th, 2014

Brookline was excited to support the Edmonton Arena District (EAD) Joint Venture, between Katz Group and WAM Development Group, on their announcement of the construction of Edmonton’s newest and tallest tower and one of the tallest structures in Western Canada.

The new 62-storey tower, which will be located in the EAD on the corner of 102 street and 103 Avenue, will host Stantec as the anchor tenant.


For the announcement, Brookline organized an employee event in Stantec’s headquarters lobby, where hundreds of Stantec employees, partners and media showed up for EAD and Stantec’s exciting announcement.




The new building will feature a lobby that opens directly into the vibrant public plaza, providing easy access for all office employees to enjoy. The top of the tower will also include an iconic design element, representing the personality of the EAD.
