North Prairie Developments seeks to change Saskatoons downtown skyline forever with the cty's tallest skyscraper.

The skyscraper will be the largest project downtown Saskatoon has seen since the Radisson and it's twin towers which were built back in the early '80's.

The development is set to be built on Third Avenue and 22nd Street and will include three seperate phases featuring a two hundred and ninety unit condominium building as well as two commercial and ofice buildings.

Phase one will include the existing office building located at 130 Third Avenue South and 116 which is currently occupied by BHP Billiton. The phase one building will be connected to phase two; a 290 unit, 30 storey condo tower on the corner of 22nd Street and Third Avenue. One hundred and five metres in height the phase two tower will include a 6 storey parking lot, restaurants and retail shops on the ground level, as well as, public parking spaces.

Phase three of the development is set to include a eighty seven metre tall commercial and office tower.

This Tuesday the municipal planning commission of the City of Saskatoon unanimously approved the zongin request for the skyscraper project. It is now pushed ahead to Saskatoon city council for a final decision.

Surpassing the city's downtown height restrictions of seventy six metres, which was previously set in 2013, the developer will add ground-level amenities with walkable shops on the ground floor, as well as, public parking spaces.

At present North Prairie's plans include accomodation for 805 parking spots in the city center tower, an additional 15 public parking spots in "phase three" building.

If Saskatoon city counsil approves the development, construction will begin in 2015.
