AN URBAN LIFESTYLE DEVELOPMENT WITH AN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN THAT IS BOTH HISTORICAL AND CURRENT IN ITS APPROACH
The Edmonton Brewery District is located at 104th Avenue and 121 Street, just minutes from the downtown core and a few steps away from a future Valley line LRT station. This mixed-use property is home to anchor tenants such as GoodLife Fitness, MEC, Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaw’s City Market, making it a favorite destination for food, fashion and culture in the heart of Edmonton.
This large mixed-use development sits on the site of the former Molson Canadian Brewery. Thoughtfully incorporating historically significant parts of the 1913 Brewery, the architecture infuses qualities of historical buildings into the 10 new buildings on this site. Using materials such as brick, aluminum composite panel and prefinished woodgrain metal panel, the material mixture of masonry and modern metal was essential to the architect’s vision for creating a ‘developed over time’ character for this project.
