Katz Group

Real Estate

Our vision for real estate is to create vibrant spaces where people can live, work, stay and play. For nearly 20 years, we have developed and operated commercial, residential and mixed-use communities that bring to life a distinctive combination of culture, commerce and design.

Our real estate business is designed to execute the broader Katz Group business plan. To that end, we collaborate with numerous partners and stakeholders and through these relationships, we have gained substantial expertise across a broad range of commercial real estate services including asset management, leasing, tenant improvement construction, redevelopment and financing, which we utilize in driving value across our unique development projects.

Our flagship development, ICE District, is a 25-acre, multi-billion dollar mixed-use development project located in the heart of downtown Edmonton. ICE District is a transcendent, modern, urban destination and gathering space and ranks as the largest mixed-use sports and entertainment district in Canada and the 2nd largest in North America after Hudson Yards in New York. The project was awarded Engineering News-Record’s 2020 Global Best Project Award in the Retail/Mixed-Use Development category. ICE District is home to a mix of premium office space, high-end residences, a luxury hotel, boutique shops and restaurants, all anchored by Rogers Place, a state-of-the-art sports and entertainment facility that is home to the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers. We expect the first phase of the project to be substantially complete by the Spring of 2022.


ICE District has transformed downtown Edmonton and created a new “heart of the city” adjacent to the downtown Financial District and immediately north of the downtown Government District. Upon completion of the first phase, ICE District will consist of 230,000 square feet of multi-level retail space, including several shopping and first-class dining options, 1.3 million square feet of LEED gold office space, over 740 luxury residential condominiums and rental units, a JW Marriott Hotel that includes 346 hotel rooms and over 16,000 square feet of meeting facilities space, a 47,000 square foot world class Grand Villa Casino, over 28,000 square feet of mixed-use public event space in Ford Hall, underground parking facilities with over 2,700 stalls, and Rogers Place, a world-class premiere sports and entertainment venue, with capacity for up to 20,000 fans.

The wider master planned development opportunity also includes over 12 acres of future building rights for approximately 3.5 million square feet, including up to 2,500 residential units plus commercial and retail development. The ICE District is fully integrated into downtown Edmonton’s comprehensive indoor pedway system that consists of over 13 kilometers of climate-controlled pedestrian tunnels and walkways that connect to more than 40 public and private buildings, parkades and Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations.
