The concrete core and steel frame of the 27-storey Edmonton Civic Tower is rising steadily. The 130-metre office building is part of Edmonton's Ice District, a mixed-use complex consisting of several new buildings, including Rogers Arena and Stantec Tower.

Developed by WAM Development Group and Katz Group Properties, the building's design includes a variety of materials, including curtain wall glass, spandrel panels, marble and granite. The interior floor plates will be column free, lending flexibility to tenants who want to customize the 130,000 square feet of available office space.

Targeting LEED Gold status, the building employs a number of environmentally-friendly features, including technology that reduces energy and systems to recycle rainwater. Workers will enjoy indoor access to the LRT via MacEwan Station, Churchill Station, Central Station, and Bay Station. Pedway connections to the LRT, Rogers Arena, Stantec Tower and the surrounding Ice District will also be provided.
