This project is a transit-oriented, high density, mixed-use redevelopment of the now-vacant Heritage Mall site in southwest Edmonton.
Working with two architecture firms and the developers, a comprehensive master plan was prepared to guide sequential development of this 15 ha site over 10 years. The project includes nine interconnected development sites with an integrated open space design requiring considerable landscaping.
Gardens and Lakes
Stormwater management required an innovative design with storage incorporated in rooftop gardens, underground storage tanks and a large amenity lake built above the underground parkades.
Engineering challenges included sizing and routing deep and shallow utilities through very narrow roadway corridors for the overall development, as well as maintaining portions of the existing infrastructure to support the staged development.
