The City of Edmonton is proud to award the contract for the Warehouse Park project to the following internationally recognized Canadian companies:
gh3* (Toronto) - The lead firm and the architecture lead.
Claude Cormier + Associés (Montreal) - The landscape architecture lead.
AECOM (Edmonton) - The engineering team and the local landscape site architect.
- Twenty/20 Communications (Edmonton) - The public engagement team.
Ombrages (Quebec) - The lighting designer.
Located in the Downtown Warehouse District, the Warehouse Park will cover 1.47 hectares, between 106 Street and 108 Street and Jasper Avenue to 102 Avenue. This park will be an inclusive, multi-use green space featuring large, open areas that invite citizens and visitors to reflect and explore. It will provide a place to recharge, socialize and celebrate in the heart of the city when it opens in 2025.
The Warehouse Park project is currently in the concept design phase, and will include opportunities for all Edmontonians to provide feedback on the design through public engagement.
Earlier this year, the City acquired the site of the former Doan's restaurant on 107 Street, north of Jasper Avenue, and will incorporate this land into the Warehouse Park.
Edmonton’s downtown plays a vital social and economic role in our city and our region. As the place we work, visit and live, our downtown contributes to the social, economic and cultural fabric of Edmonton and we are committed to creating a vibrant downtown. The Warehouse Park project supports the City’s Downtown Vibrancy Strategy, and will be a significant public amenity for downtown residents, workers and visitors.
