Why Prairie Sky Gondola
Connectivity is a principle that, if applied boldly and with consideration to details, contributes greatly to building cities.
Jeffrey Hansen-Carlson, Prairie Sky President and CEO
With a gondola station located downtown that delivers connectivity to current ETS infrastructure this segment of our city will be activated in a new way. With a direct connection to the urban economy of Old Strathcona those that live and work and play in downtown will have new choices. The journey from downtown to the recreation opportunities alongside the river in West Rossdale will take mere minutes. City builders will be empowered. Prairie Sky is a catalyst.
Edmonton's River Valley Neighbourhood
West Rossdale is a special place. A destination gondola station will draw people to the community to share in the vibrant and impactful stories of the area. But, West Rossdale needs a bold catalyst and a low-impact people-moving solution. Prairie Sky will stitch West Rossdale into the hubs of Downtown and Old Strathcona in a very tangible way.
Edmonton's Heritage District
Old Strathcona and the Whyte Ave. corridor in many ways define the culture of Edmontonians – arts, grassroots commerce, and an engaged community. With a direct connection to Downtown the excitement that is a constant in Old Strathcona will contribute in very meaningful ways to the rapid growth of Edmonton’s core. The power of this blend of communities cannot be understated.
