Live. Work. Play.

A world-class combination of entertainment, residences, offices, and gathering places.

Edmonton, Alberta

Transforming Edmonton from the ground up

Downtown Edmonton’s busiest thoroughfare is unrecognizable from the dusty parking lots that bordered the street just a few years ago. DIALOG’s role, which started on the north side of 104 avenue at Rogers Place, has expanded to the south, and now includes work on 9 out of 13 major components of the ICE District, beginning with the architectural and structural design of the 2,100 stall car park below the site. At ground level, DIALOG and PFS Studio are designing the heart of the district–the plaza–which will become a community hub with year-round programming; a public realm unlike anything else in Canada. And above ground, DIALOG and Hariri Pontarini Architects are collaboratively designing the hotel and condo tower/podium, as well as the Block BG tower which will include a much-needed downtown grocery store and other hospitality suites.

Viva Las Edmonton

The ICE District has already made waves in the development industry, sparking billions of dollars of investment in Downtown Edmonton. Once completed, Canada’s largest mixed-use sports and entertainment development will include condos, a four-star JW Marriott hotel, restaurants, bars, and fitness facilities.
