The Hendrix Building, which will soon become Edmonton’s premiere new residential tower is embracing the historical past of Edmonton, as well as the current needs of the city’s ever changing landscape. As the Building is designed to meet LEED Silver designation, environmental impact is also front of mind.
On October 1, 2014, at 4 PM, Edgar Development Corp will break ground and celebrate this important milestone on the future site of its newest residential tower at 9733 111 Street. The Hendrix, scheduled for occupancy in summer 2016, will be a 29 storey LEED Silver apartment building well located in Edmonton’s central Oliver neighbourhood, and upon completion will be one of Edmonton’s most desirable rental properties. The building will contain 260 units on a two-storey podium featuring street oriented townhomes and will incorporate J.T. Ross house, an existing historical home. The building will be comprised of studios, townhomes, and one, two, and three bedroom units ranging in size from 417 square feet for the studio units to 1,293 square feet for the townhouse units.
The historical J.T. Ross house which was previously located on the site is being preserved with the interior to be converted into boutique office space, and the exterior fully restored.
The Hendrix, being the first purpose built high rise in almost 20 years, will be responding to the demand for more housing options in the downtown core geared towards families and professionals alike. Many families looking for downtown living alternatives will find solutions in the building, with 13 townhomes that are zoned as family oriented units, with either 2 or 3 bedrooms.
