A Place for Everyone!

Construction on the new Jasper Place Transit Centre in Edmonton has started supporting the City’s vision for growth and enhanced passenger experience.  Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) sees upwards of 400,000 riders per day, and is an important way for Edmontonians to connect. The new facility will have bright, comfortable waiting areas designed to accommodate more people. The old brick building on the northwest corner of the transit centre is to be demolished and a new, smaller facility will take its place and will feature integrated landscaping, bike parking, and seating.

Peter Lougheed Hall Wins at the 2017 Edmonton Urban Design Awards

On November 3rd, the University of Alberta’s Peter Lougheed Hall received the Award of Merit in the Urban Architecture category at the 2017 Edmonton Urban Design Awards (EUDA)! Since 2005, the City of Edmonton and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) have co-hosted the EUDAs to ‘recognize individuals, organizations, firms and projects that have contributed to urban design and the quality of life in Edmonton’. Peter Lougheed Hall was selected from a large number of submitted projects, and voted upon by a jury of five distinguished design professionals.

Peter Lougheed Hall is a distinct student residence on the University of Alberta’s main campus. Overlooking the North Saskatchewan river, the facility provides an enriching experience that fosters and supports students to put them on a developmental path towards leadership.
