Scotia Place has undergone a transformation that brought a new vibrancy to the building, created harmony in the surrounding community and complemented the changing Edmonton skyline. The enhancement modernized this iconic building.
The transformation involved the replacement of the glass panels and redevelopment of the three main entrances. This was a significant investment of $22 million that enhanced and renewed the building for future decades.
CURTAIN WALL REGLAZING
Modern silver reflective glass was used on the leading edge of the towers with complementary pacific blue reflective glass panels on all other sides. City views were maximized, and natural light optimized into tenant space.
The silver glass panels are a new feature on the leading edge and act as a visual identification of the building. The silver panels are illuminated at night with horizontal LED lights in a modern, sophisticated pattern giving it prominence on the skyline.
In addition to the curtain wall reglazing, all three street level entranceways have undergone significant structural enhancements. The new design of the entrances visually liven the complex and streetscape.
