Ritchie Professional Centre
The Ritchie Professional Centre is one of the “Four Corners” of Ritchie, a South East Edmonton community hoping to revitalize their neighbourhood. The owner of the Ritchie Professional Centre initiated a facade renovation of the entire building, which required the other condo owners to be on board for the project. Working within a range of budgets to accommodate each owner, AVID’s design incorporates a variety of materials to create a diverse mosaic of business facades.
The Ritchie Facade Upgrade qualified for the City of Edmonton Facade Improvement Program, a grant that looks to renew and revitalize Edmonton communities. In meeting the guidelines of this grant, variation in the facade as well as various architectural elements were explored in order to provide human scale elements to make the building more pedestrian-friendly and accessible.
