QUARTERS DOWNTOWN STREETSCAPE
Location: Edmonton, Alberta
Project Type: Transportation
Connecting the Quarters
This was developed as a multidisciplinary project that utilized the expertise of ISL’s transportation, landscape architecture and structural disciplines, along with a complement of expertise from its key subconsultants.
The Armature is encompassed by mixed use developments providing commercial/retail frontages with residences in the stories above. The City is utilizing a Community Revitalization Levy as a means of financing the infrastructure improvements required to facilitate private developments.
The construction of a project with these sustainability features comes with a host of challenges for implementation. Extensive planning of utility relocations, weather proofing construction techniques implemented in partnership with the contractor for the installation of the bio-filtration beds, as well as simultaneous construction of a very intensive surfacing design added to the project complexity.
Successfully completed on time and on budget, Phase 1 of the Quarters redevelopment, the Armature, has accomplished what it set out to do. It has realized the City of Edmonton’s vision to redefine an aging neighbourhood.
