How Edmonton’s Skyline Has Changed since 2007

Edmonton, the capital of Alberta, has one of the fastest growing economies in Canada. It’s no surprise that this growth has led to many changes in the city’s real estate landscape. And with 322 high-rises and 42 skyscrapers, Edmonton is definitely no stranger to development.

To show you how much this city has changed since 2007 as a result of the condo boom, we created the following slideshows, with the help of Google Street View images:

1. Twin towers on 104th Street (Link to Street View)
Located on one of the most fashionable streets in Edmonton, the Icon towers are currently the tallest residential buildings in the city. The first tower has 30 floors above ground and is 92 metres tall, while the second tower was completed in late 2009 having 35 floors and a height of 112 metres. These two residential condominiums have completely reshaped the skyline of Fourth Street Promenade in the last few years.
