Registration Now Open for the 2019 Edmonton Infill Design Competition

18-08-15 Missing Middle design Competition - social media - 1200x630 - A - FINAL.jpg

Five City of Edmonton owned parcels of land at the northeast corner of 112 Avenue and 106 Street in the Spruce Avenue neighbourhood are up for redevelopment.  The City is soliciting proposals from multidisciplinary teams of architects and builders/developers from across Canada and abroad to design a multi-unit, medium-density, or ‘missing middle’, housing development on these lots.  The challenge is to submit an innovative design that is not only thoughtful of neighbourhood context, but also economically feasible, responds to local market conditions and advances the design ethic for infill in Edmonton.

The winning team will be given the opportunity to purchase the site and build their winning design, conditional upon rezoning approval.  The finished development will be used to inspire innovative ‘missing middle’ infill development in other parts of the city.

The 2019 competition has been endorsed by the Alberta Association of Architects and will be judged by  an esteemed national panel of judges that include:

  • Talbot Sweetapple, Architect (Halifax, NS)

  • Alex Bozikovic, Architectural Critic (Toronto, ON)

  • Hazel Borys, Planner (Winnipeg, MB)

  • Renée Daoust, Architect (Montreal, QC)

  • Gene Dub, Architect (Edmonton, AB)

The competition is part of Edmonton Infill Roadmap 2018 Action 5: Partner to pilot innovative housing. Visit edmontoninfilldesign.ca to learn more and register for the competition.
