How much City money has been spent to date on the capital for Blatchford?

0 likes | Submitted by Daniel Eggert

The Blatchford Redevelopment Office has spent approximately $135 million. These capital expenditures include costs associated with closing the airport, consulting services for the development of the plan for the neighbourhood, demolition costs for buildings and runways, remediation costs, consulting services for the design and construction oversight for Stage One, and construction costs for the installation of underground and surface servicing (utilities, roads, walkways, etc) for Stage One.

In 2016, Edmonton City Council approved $19.44 million to plan, design and construct the first stage of the District Energy Sharing System, which will provide heating, cooling and domestic hot water for the first stage of development in the community. The funding for the District Energy Sharing System includes construction for the completed geoexchange field, comprised of 570 boreholes under the stormwater pond, and the first Energy Centre for the community. Construction on the Energy Centre is well underway and commissioning is anticipated in the third quarter of 2019, as originally planned.
