About Downtown Edmonton
Imagine landing property on New York’s Upper East Side before it blossomed into what it is today: a playground for New York’s titans of business, entertainment and culture. Well, Edmonton’s ICE District is poised to become just that, thanks to a perfect storm of locational advantage, downtown rejuvenation, and upscale opportunities in the J.W. Marriott skyscraper, Stantec Tower, Edmonton Tower and ICE District Tower B – with even more to come.
Excitement in the area is also elevating interest in surrounding communities, where the city’s award-winning restaurants, first-class entertainment and walkability have long been a draw for those who prize urban sophistication. With Rogers Place at your doorstep and the downtown skyline at your balcony, there’s no better place to stake your claim to vibrant city living.

At the heart of downtown Edmonton is the new ICE District, which spans 101 to 104 Street, and 103 to 106 Avenue. It’s bound on the west by the trendy Warehouse District, on the east by the Civic Precinct, on the north by McCauley, and the south by the Financial District – each area teeming with possibilities.
Although downtown construction remains somewhat heavy, keep in mind it’s a gateway to better transit, restaurants, businesses and urban greenspace. Downtown currently boasts 15,000 people and is expected to reach 18,000 by 2021 – a population that ensures the lights don’t go out when office hours end.
The coveted area is virtually all vertical, with luxury and high-end condos that include Ultima, The Legends Private Residences, and SKY Residences, the latter of which features four outdoor patios, including one with hot tubs and barbecues exclusive to residents. Prices range from $120,000 to upward of $1.5 million, with the average listing hovering just north of $400,000. The neighbourhood is ideal for professionals, singles, empty-nesters and couples who prize sweeping vistas, a rich social scene, and a stillness you can only find 66 stories into the air.
