Greek Orthodox Community plans Edmonton building

An Edmonton faith community plans to develop part of a former car dealership into a new, modern and eye-catching retail building.

The St. George’s Greek Orthodox Community is planning to develop a 2 acre parcel of land on Jasper Avenue in Edmonton.  The goal is to build a three-storey retail building with unique curved glass as a main feature that will be a “gem” on Jasper Avenue.

The current plan calls for construction to begin on the site in September this year with completion around the fall of 2021.  A number of tenants have already expressed interest in the new building. They intend to pattern the style and usage after the Oliver Exchange building which has food and retail on the main floor and office space on the 2nd and 3rd floors.  An underground parkade is included as well.
