More Information

This prominent building, at the corner of Edmonton and Broadway, was designed by Libling and Michener Architects. The building’s design features angled and stepped facades. Each step is created by pre-cast concrete verticals with an exposed aggregate finish. Each of the angled faces is clad with reflective glass, in black frames.

A small, low podium with planters, separates the building from the street. This follows in the tradition of the earlier buildings along Broadway and contributes to the continued formal quality of the street. The stepped facades serve to break up the building’s mass.
