The City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Eskimo Football Club selected MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects, with local partners HIP Architects, as the prime consultant for the development of the $96 million Multi-Use Recreation Complex and Field House attached to the south end of Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium. MJMA was invited and selected from a shortlist of 12 Sport and Community Architects from across Canada for this highly visible project.

MJMA is working with the multiple client groups, various stakeholders, and the appointed construction manager Clark Builders to deliver a phased and fast tracked facility to be open for the 2010 Grey Cup, with the remaining recreation complex to open Spring 2012. More images and architects’ description after the break.

This 220,000 s.f. facility houses a 60,000 s.f. aquatic component, a 80,000 s.f. field house, a 20,000 s.f. fitness centre, 30,000 s.f. of community space and 30,000 s.f. of new Eskimo Administration and Operations. As well as being the new home and practice facility for the Eskimo Organization, the building knits the shared field house, with the original 3 story community facility on the back of stadium into a holistic overall multi-purpose recreation complex for the communities of North Central Edmonton.
