The City of Edmonton is working on a number of initiatives that will work together to determine the future of the Coliseum area.
The major City-led projects in the area include:
- Coliseum Station Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP)
- Coliseum Transformation
- EXPO Centre
Discussions are underway with Northlands and Edmonton Economic Development Corporation to explore if a consolidated conference and events approach could be beneficial for Edmonton. Discussion on this potential merger will continue.
- Coliseum LRT Station Redesign
The City of Edmonton is looking at refurbishing the existing Coliseum LRT Station with a focus on improving safety and accessibility.
The City of Edmonton is taking a coordinated approach to the development of this important area to ensure all the projects align and to ensure they take into consideration the needs of the surrounding communities.
Work will also integrate with other City planning work occurring nearby and will leverage existing revitalization initiatives, such as the Avenue Initiative and Borden Park upgrades, to continue improving liveability for residents, businesses, and visitors while also updating the vision for city-building in the area.
