There`s a group of companies working behind the scenes—in the hopes of making the Èdmonton Gondola—a reality.
If you recall–the gondola was the winning entry in the Edmonton Project contest–which asked people for ideas to make the city even more exciting.
Jeffrey Hansen-Carlson with EllisDon Construction says investors around the world have expressed interest in the idea—so right now—they want to get clarity on the process–through city hall:
“As soon as we have clarity on the process from the city–the first bit of money will pay for a preliminary feasibility assessment of the economics and the technology of the system—and from there–more tranches of money will be available to bring it forward.“
He is optimistic the gondola will get off the ground—–and feels it will be at least three years before construction gets underway. (photo credit–CTV)
