The company responsible for four condo high-rises on downtown’s 104th Street is set to build two more.
Langham Developments plans to build a 37-storey tower on the corner of 104th Street and 100th Avenue, with an adjacent 43-storey tower to follow.
Falcon One will offer 296 units, while Falcon Two will contain 356.
City council approved rezoning the empty lot on Wednesday to make room for the towers.
President Reza Mostashari predicts the project will continue the revitalization of the popular downtown street.
“Our twin towers will add to the vibrancy of 104th Street and contribute to the liveability of Edmonton’s downtown core,” Mostashari said. “Its modern, contemporary architectural design is distinctive and will leave a lasting impression on the city centre.”
The company is hoping the location near Rogers Place, the downtown night scene, the 104th Street farmers market and the Bay Enterprise Square LRT station will draw prospective tenants.
Falcon One will features large outdoor spaces and open-concept design with a “family focus” by ensuring a number of three-bedroom units in the towers, Mostashari said.
The Falcon towers will include retail space for a range of businesses and be set back from the street to keep from “encroaching on the existing pedestrian realm on 104th Street.”
Langham has built five other downtown towers, including the Icon Tower I and II and the Fox I and II, all on 104th Street, and the Omega on 105th Street.
“We are excited about continuing our legacy of building some of Edmonton’s most spectacular residential condominium towers,” Mostashari said.
Langham is set to start selling units for Falcon One later this year with construction set to begin in 2019.

Sherwood Park is a large hamlet in Alberta, Canada within Strathcona County that is recognized as an urban service area. It is located adjacent to the City of Edmonton’s eastern boundary, generally south of Highway 16 (Yellowhead Trail), west of Highway 21 and north of Highway 630 (Wye Road). Other portions of Sherwood Park extend beyond Yellowhead Trail and Wye Road, while Anthony Henday Drive (Highway 216) separates Refinery Row to the west from the balance of the hamlet to the east.
Sherwood Park was established in 1955 on farmland of the Smeltzer family, east of Edmonton. With a population of 70,618 in 2016, Sherwood Park has enough people to be Alberta’s seventh largest city, but technically retains the status of a hamlet. The Government of Alberta recognizes the Sherwood Park Urban Service Area as equivalent to a city.
Sherwood Park, originally named Campbelltown, was founded by John Hook Campbell and John Mitchell in 1953 when the Municipal District of Strathcona No. 83 approved their proposed development of a bedroom community east of Edmonton. The first homes within the community were marketed to the public in 1955. Canada Post intervened on the name of Campbelltown due to the existence of several other communities in Canada within the same name, so the community’s name was changed to Sherwood Park in 1956.
The Sherwood Park Urban Service Area is located in the Edmonton Capital Region along the western edge of central Strathcona County adjacent to the City of Edmonton. The majority of the community is bound by Highway 16 (Yellowhead Highway) to the north, Highway 21 to the east, Highway 630 (Wye Road) to the south, and Anthony Henday Drive (Highway 216) to the west. The Refinery Row portion of Sherwood Park is located across Anthony Henday Drive to the west, between Sherwood Park Freeway and Highway 16. Numerous developments fronting the south side of Wye Road, including Wye Gardens, Wye Crossing, Salisbury Village and the Estates of Sherwood Park, are also within the community. Lands north of Highway 16 and south of Township Road 534/Oldman Creek between Range Road 232 (Sherwood Drive) to the west and Highway 21 to the east are also within the Sherwood Park urban service area.
