Edmonton’s downtown transformation got another boost from the ICE District on Monday with the announcement of a major-brand grocery store.
A 22,000-square-foot Loblaws’ CityMarket will open in the fall of next year at 103 Avenue and 103 Street, the former Greyhound bus station, now called Block BG.
“Announcing Block BG’s anchor tenant is a major milestone, as it showcases the continued progress and evolution of ICE District,” said Darren Durstling, president and CEO of ONE Properties, an ICE District Joint Venture partner, in a prepared statement.
The grocery store will take up the second floor of the premise, with escalator access, and will be connected to the indoor pedway system providing warmth and comfort for shoppers living downtown, such as those at the new ICE District luxury suites in SKY Residences and The Legends Private Residences.
The ICE District, anchored by Edmonton’s still-new downtown arena, claims to be the largest mixed-use sports and entertainment district in Canada.
