ECCA Lands Consultation Complete

A public engagement process conducted by the City of Edmonton to assist in the selection of the preferred consultant team for the redevelopment of the Edmonton Centre City Airport Lands is now complete.

The five design firms among the shortlist are truly world-class, with Perkins and Will and Group2 Architecture Engineering forming the only Canadian based proposal.

From the City of Edmonton website:

“The City has now completed its latest phase of public consultation.  Citizens provided observations on five conceptual designs and videos from teams from North America and Europe as part of their submission to redevelop the City Centre Airport lands. Those observations will be considered by a Selection Committee in the decision to choose a winning team and they will also be considered during the upcoming 15-month planning process which will further define the winning conceptual plan and, among other items, roads, subdivisions, land uses, green space amenities, etc.

It is important to remember the City is choosing the best team instead of choosing the best conceptual design. The best elements of all these designs will be considered for incorporation into the final master plan.”
