UAlberta moves over 500 employees to downtown location


The University of Alberta has expanded its presence in downtown Edmonton and has moved over 500 employees to the Enterprise Square location. The move is part of the university’s larger strategic initiative to ensure the most efficient use of campus spaces and buildings. The institution’s future plans for the Enterprise Square location include the growth and development of a technology and innovation hub with tenants. “[When the university bought the building the] vision was to create a Downtown hub of education, innovation and excellence that would strengthen the partnerships between the university, the city and local businesses,” said UAlberta President Bill Flanagan. “It took a while to bring this vision to life, but I think today we really have achieved that.”
