10 HYATT PLACE | THE ARMATURE, 2016
Designed by Edmonton architect Gene Dub, the new Hyatt Place reaches for the river valley like a crystal and landmarks Edmonton’s first “green street”, the Armature. Titled to be the central focus of The Quarters around which the four precincts radiate, The Armature was designed with pedestrians and cyclists as the priority, including widened sidewalks, bike lanes, rolled curb faces, and a reduced number of lanes for vehicles. The street hosts specialized planters that help to capture and filter stormwater when it rains, reducing the amount of water that enters storm drains.
