In June of 2011
CentreVenture Development Corporation announced that Longboat Development Corporation and Groupe Germain Hospitality will develop a 20 storey, 200,000 square foot tower at the intersection of Portage and Donald.

The tower will consist of 85,000 square feet of office space, including a new corporate headquarters for Stantec, an architectural and engineering firm. There's also a 154 room ALT Hotel and a 15,000 square foot lobby and retail area.

Former Clarendon Hotel
The site is currently occupied by the Clarendon Hotel / MTS Exhibition Hall and the Donalda Building. The heritage status of the Clarendon has already been removed to allow for demolition.

Norlyn Building

Norlyn Building on Hargrave Street will make way for a 464 car parkade.

CentreVenture expects this to be the first of a number of announcements for an 11 square block "SHED" (Sports, Hospitality, Entertainment District) downtown tax incentive zone.
