Alberta Investmen Management Corporation will be moving into HSBC Place in Edmonton when the international investment giant fınishes an extensive renovation of the downtown tower.

AIMCo bought the HSBC building in 2017. It will consolidate its Edmonton workforce on 8 floors of the 17 floor building. It located on 101st Street in the financial core of the city. The refurbishment is complete at the end of December 2019.

HSBC Place to be almost brand new

HSBC Bank Place, a 317,000 sq. ft. office tower in Edmonton’s financial district, is undergoing a complete exterior and interior redevelopment. Once concluded, the new building will boast a triple glazed curtain wall system, floor to ceiling view glass in the office area, new mechanical and electrical systems, and a revitalized 2-storey lobby, transforming the building into a distinctive and best in class “AA” office building and bringing new life to the corner of 103rd Avenue and 101st Street. The redevelopment is targeting Leed Gold Certification, Well Gold Certification, and to become the first office building in Western Canada to be Wired Certified.

Pat Dineen who the asset management company for HSBC Place said that we’re going to end up with almost a brand new building. The quality will be as good or better than anything in Edmonton, maybe anything in Canada, actually.

There will also be amenities including a tenant fitness centre, conference centre and bicycle storage. The property includes a seven storey parkede.
