New Enbridge Centre rises from ashes of historic Kelly Ramsey Building
Over the course of a century, the Kelly Ramsey Building has gone from a thriving commercial block in downtown Edmonton to a burned out hulk.

On Thursday, the circle closed with the grand opening of the rebuilt and renamed Enbridge Centre, the first new office tower in the financial district in nearly three decades.

The 28-storey tower was built on the site of the historic Kelly Ramsey Building, actually two adjoining structures, on Rice-Howard Way and the Swedish Jewellers Building fronting 101 Street. Those old buildings were demolished, but the $300-million project, funded by private investors, took special pains to retain parts of their heritage.

Enbridge Centre brings business hub to downtown Edmonton
In with the old, and with the new.

The Enbridge Centre officially opened its doors Thursday at Rice Howard Way and 101 Street, with 28 storeys of office space atop the reconstructed foundation of the 100-year-old Kelly Ramsey building.

John Day, the developer who spearheaded the project, said the financial building’s placement is “a symbol of downtown Edmonton’s renaissance.”

“For most of Edmonton’s history, downtown was the city’s business hub. That unfortunately shifted a bit over time to the detriment of our city. But things are starting to change,” Day said.

“As a lifelong Edmontonian, I can honestly say I’ve never seen our city so confident in what it can do and where it can go.”
