Firms vie to revamp muni lands

LINDA HOANG
Edmonton Sun

Redevelopment of the City Centre Airport is moving ahead as five design firms were announced as finalists in the airport redesign competition Friday.

The companies were among 33 worldwide vying for the chance to turn the airport site into an environmentally sustainable, mixed-use and transit-oriented development for more than 30,000 residents.

The final five are Sweco International AB from Stockholm, Sweden, KCAP Architects & Planners from Rotterdam, Netherlands, BNIM from Kansas City, USA, and Perkins + Will from Vancouver, B.C, and all firms have local partners.

“This is a veritable whose who of the design, architectural, and engineering world,” said Simon Farbrother, city manager. “The work quality that they have provided to us demonstrates not only that they have the innovative ability to design something that is world-leading in sustainability and family redevelopment, but is also something that is achievable.”

The announcement comes while Envision Edmonton is working to collect nearly 80,000 signatures by the end of the month to force a plebiscite to keep the City Centre Airport open.

Officials say since the petition has not yet been submitted, the airport redesign process will proceed in the timeline as originally planned.

“About a year ago, council made a decision to work on the land. We’re continuing along that journey,” Farbrother said.

Coun. Ben Henderson says the step forward in the design process is necessary despite the circulation of the petition.

“We need to get on with it,” he said. “One of the things that frustrates me about where we are right now is we keep on dithering. We’ve dithered for 20, 30 years on this decision and it’s done nothing but damage to the city by that dithering.”

But Charles Allard with Envision Edmonton said if the redesign is to go ahead, it should include a working airport.

“Our plan is much more viable, balanced. It creates to place to play, live and work. (The city) forgot the place to work in their designs… I think all they are trying to do is kill the airport,” Allard said.

He adds that the group is in the 60,000 signature-range of their campaign.

Rostizado is a modern-Mexican restaurant that uses fresh, quality local ingredients prepared in traditional-Mexican rosticeria fashion: slow-cooked and hearty. Their platters are a must-try: with rotisserie chicken, beef, and Cuban-Style pork shoulder. We also love their crispy potatoes, roasted cauliflower and various queso dips. They have an awesome lunch deal and the churros are to die for. Rostizado has a great vibe, cool decor, excellent service and a meal here is always a good time! Their sister-restaurant @trescarnales is also a popular spot for tacos in the city!

Bรผndok is a pretty cool place on 104 Street, serving up delicious and beautifully-plated food. Their brunch menu includes both bistro and brunch options. There's french toast, eggs benny, omelettes and sausages, but the bistro dishes are my favourite - like sea bream crudo and chicken liver. Yuuuum!! Although this giveaway is for brunch, you also have to try their regular lunch and dinner menu. Bรผndok's gnocchi is unbelievable. Bรผndok should most certainly be on your list for a visit!

El Cortez is always a good time. They just launched their new winter menu too so be sure to check it out, PLUS - on Tuesdays its half-price tacos!! ๐ŸŒฎ Theyโ€™re also currently running a holiday gift card promotion!
