Revitalizing over 25 acres of Edmonton’s city centre, the ICE district is a modern metropolis, one of Canada’s largest multi-use projects, combining offices, residential living, a public plaza, shopping, entertainment and a sports arena – all in walking distance. It’s a vibrant urban district, attracting visitors from all corners of the city, the country and the world.
At the centre of the ICE district is the Edmonton Tower. Designed by Stantec Architecture, the Edmonton Tower integrates a combination of curtain wall, natural stone and public art. The contemporary building reflects the culture and energy of the ICE District. OmbraeTM surface technology was chosen for the public art component, designed by DDB Canada, featuring 10,000 square feet of optical tiles at the base of the building.
