Great news for downtown yesterday, as Intuit announced it is relocating to the new EPCOR Tower. Here’s a statement from Michael Hladun, site leader for Intuit in Edmonton:
It’s official, we are moving our 200-plus Edmonton-based employees downtown into the EPCOR Tower. Intuit Canada is thrilled to be part of Edmonton’s downtown development and we have chosen this site because it provides our employees with excellent access to on-site amenities, proximity to a multitude of downtown services, and excellent transit options. The EPCOR Tower is the first high-rise office space to be built in downtown Edmonton in over two decades. It is the landmark building on the Station Lands site, a 9.15 acre, mixed-use development site that brings together commercial, retail, residential and recreational space. The building is located within 600 feet of Edmonton City Hall, and near other attractions, such as Canada Place, the Citadel Theatre, the Edmonton Public Library, and the Art Gallery of Alberta. There are numerous shops, department stores, hotels, and eating establishments within walking distance, and the area is anticipated to continue to develop both in the near and long-term future. Inuit Canada, which is currently located on Roper Road in south-central Edmonton, will complete the move to EPCOR Tower in the fall of 2013. We have deep roots in Edmonton that stretch back over two decades, and we look forward to continue being an active, contributing citizen for years to come. We were named both the #8 best large company to work for in Canada in 2012, and one of the year’s top 50 Best Small to Medium sized employers in Canada. Intuit Canada is excited about this move to the city’s core because it will enable us to continue delivering an incredible employee experience, while putting us right in the heart of the downtown development.
