From East to West: Developments to Watch in Boyle Street
In recent years, The Quarters district has stolen the spotlight for up-and-coming projects in our neighbourhood, but signs of a Boyle Street building boom are everywhere. Here a few developments that are turning heads, from 97 Street all the way to Stadium LRT Station.
River Lot House
(10434 91 Street NW)
River Lot House is a residential project in the heart of Boyle Street. The proposed building would offer 75 residential units at six stories. The proposal provides a mix of affordable suites and three bedroom units. Please come by Boyle Street Plaza (Willow Room), 9538 103A Avenue, for a public open house scheduled for December 10th.
Muttart Lands at Stadium LRT Station
Muttart Lands Phase One is well under way with the first new residents expected to move in by the fall of 2020. Phase one will include 243 rental apartments and 2,500 square feet of commercial space. This transit-oriented project provides a fantastic link to Commonwealth Stadium and Stadium LRT Station. We are very excited at potential opportunities to partner with Rohit (the developer) to welcome new businesses and residents to Boyle Street.
9666 Jasper Avenue
The historic Brighton Block has been one to watch. A partnership between Primavera and Sparrow Capital, this is a local Edmonton company known for revitalization of a number of Edmonton’s historic gems. This project, which mixes office and retail in the fully restored building, is expected to be completed in early 2020.
10327 97 Street
Stovel Block has been a landmark structure in the area for over 100 years. The historic commercial building that sits kitty-corner to the new Royal Alberta Museum, was approved for restoration and redevelopment by the City of Edmonton on October 22nd. The building was bought and is being redeveloped by Gather Co., the owners of the historic Mercer Warehouse. We are very excited to keep engaged as we know more about this future Boyle Street amenity.
