Almost a decade in the making, the new vision for Edmonton's downtown destination has a new name: Ice District. The development of Ice District is fuelled by the desire to continue to build Edmonton into a destination for people from all corners of the world to come and enjoy. Once Ice District takes shape, it will be the largest mixed-use sports and entertainment district in Canada. Ice District started with Daryl Katz and a vision. Katz Group partnered with the City of Edmonton to build Rogers Place, home of the Edmonton Oilers. In 2012, Katz Group joined forces with WAM Development Group to create the EAD Joint Venture, today known as Ice District Properties, the vibrant mixed-use development surrounding the arena. Together they are set to complete the vision and develop a downtown district that brings Edmontonians together and attracts visitors to a city that's truly world class. "Today's announcement marks a huge milestone in creating a world-class destination where Edmontonians and visitors from around the world will come to experience our great city and all it has to offer," said Daryl Katz, Chairman, Katz Group. "Ice District is the perfect reflection of the type of energy and feeling this area will bring to anyone who sets foot here." For all updates see the Ice District website below.
