Edmonton, AB (July 20, 2016) - ICE District Joint Venture announced today that Dentons Canada LLP (Dentons) has agreed to lease office space in Stantec Tower. When it moves to its new space in Q2 2019, Dentons will occupy more than two and a half floors of the world-class structure.
When completed in fall 2018, Stantec Tower will not only be the tallest structure in Edmonton, but among the tallest in Western Canada. The tower will rise to 66 storeys and is comprised of 28 storeys of office space and approximately 481 residential units.

“After being in our current space for almost 35 years, moving to Stantec Tower is an exciting opportunity for us to show our commitment to the city of Edmonton and our community,” said Carman R. McNary, Q.C., Managing Partner, Denton’s Canada LLP. “Dentons believes that “Challengers Never Rest”, and we are thrilled to join ICE District as it takes on the challenge of reshaping Edmonton for the future.
