ICE District started with Daryl Katz and a vision. Katz Group partnered with the City of Edmonton to build Rogers Place, the catalyst for ICE District. Then, in 2012, Katz Group joined forces with ONE Properties (formerly WAM Development Group) to create 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.
Katz Group Real Estate (KGRE) is leading the development of ICE District in downtown Edmonton. With more than $2 billion committed to be invested in Phase 1, ICE District is a 25-acre mixed-use development featuring commercial, residential, retail and public space. ICE District is anchored by Rogers Place, the class of North American sports and entertainment venues, which KGRE and OEG developed and opened in fall 2016 in partnership with the City of Edmonton. KGRE has been involved in land assembly, site and building development across Canada and the United States for over 15 years. In addition to ICE District in downtown Edmonton, KGRE's real estate portfolio also includes approximately one million square feet of retail-based commercial shopping centre space across the country.

Located in the heart of Downtown Edmonton, ICE District is situated in close proximity to all forms of entertainment, the LRT transit, the University of Alberta and major employment centres.
A $2.5 billion project (Phase 1), the ICE District is Canada's largest mixed use and entertainment district, with Rogers Place (home to the Edmonton Oilers), the Grand Villa Casino and Winter Garden public gathering place.
At $680 to $800 sq. ft., SKY Residences provides an excellent ROI. By way of comparison, an equivalent building in Toronto would be priced at $1200 sq. ft., while in Vancouver one would expect to pay $1500 sq. ft.
With construction already underway (occupancy in late 2019), a 2 year rental guarantee and 20% down for purchasers, ICE District also has the advantage of the Homeward Bond program, where qualified purchasers can enjoy 10% of the purchase price covered, with any interest incurred subsidized by the Vendor.
Compared to Toronto, Edmonton homeowners enjoy the benefit of much lower closing costs. With only 5% GST on closing, homeowners do not have to worry about land transfer taxes, meter costs or development charge costs at closing and no luxury tax for foreign investors
ICE District is a partnership between One Properties, one of Alberta's most reputable developers behind over 42,000,000 sq. ft. of commercial and residential real estate across Canada, and Katz Group, the ownership group behind the Edmonton Oilers.
