Crews have completed prep work on a vacant lot in a busy area of downtown Edmonton to pave the way for construction of a new, $150-million School of Business building at MacEwan University.

The site, at 109 Street and 105 Avenue, will soon be home to a seven-storey tower and wedge-shaped building that will accommodate an additional 7,500 students in business and STEM fields.

A groundbreaking ceremony, attended by politicians, university officials and stakeholders, was held at the site recently to mark the start of construction.

The new structure promises to be a signature building that will revitalize the city’s downtown core.

The sleek-looking building will incorporate a high-efficiency mechanical and electrical system, solar photovoltaic panels to convert thermal energy into electricity, and a high-performing exterior that includes vertical solar shading fins for regulation of inside temperatures.
