  • Arena Focal Point Of Mixed-Use Development

    Oilers Owner Daryl Katz is thinking big in Edmonton. In one of the most ambitious projects to hit the boards recently, Katz pushes forward with his plan for a new arena by submitting a zoning application for a 16-acre downtown plot. The proposal calls for the venue to anchor a major mixed-use development that includes hotels, retail, apartments and a casino. The goal is to break ground on the arena in January '12 and for the Oilers to begin play in the new digs by '14. In articulating the ambitious vision, Katz Group VP Bob Black calls the project an opportunity to "change the way the world sees Edmonton." But it is sure to undergo plenty of scrutiny from city councilors unsure if Katz' vision is the best way to reshape the downtown region.
