City Centre Redevelopment Conceptual Designs on Display at Fantasyland Hotel
February 25, 2011
Edmontonians can view and provide observations on the conceptual designs from five international teams shortlisted to provide the master plan for the City Centre Redevelopment project.
A public information session will be held:
Date: Saturday, February 26, 2011
Time: 10am - 2pm
Location: West Edmonton Mall – Beverly Hills Ballroom
17700 - 87 Avenue
(3rd floor, Fantasyland Hotel, entrances 51 or 52)
Display boards and a 5-minute video will be presented at the session.
These conceptual designs are one of the components the Selection Committee will consider in recommending to City Council the best team to work on the City Centre Redevelopment project. The Selection Committee will also consider the public’s comments in making its recommendation to City Council.
Each team’s display consists of eight poster boards (30 inches by 40 inches) that include site drawings, sketches and renderings, and a five-minute video illustrating that team’s unique vision for the lands according to the seven Master Planning Principles. The seven principles, endorsed by City Council in 2010, include: planning & design, ecological footprint, infrastructure, family housing, green space amenities, technology and history.
You can also view the teams’ submissions online and at City Hall in the City Room until February 28, 9pm.
