Aurum Gateway: Refuel. Refresh. Repeat.

Aurum Energy Park is easily accessible to anyone and everyone –whether that’s the people who work in Aurum Industrial Park or those traversing the major routes nearby. At over 38 acres of land and a total of 15 lots available for retail services, it has the potential to be a lucrative business location, since there’s already a built-in potential customer base: from existing tenants and their business operations – their employees and their business colleagues who visit the park; and also from the general public whose travel routes may bring them near or to the Park. Services such as a gas station, car wash and restaurants will likely generate high volumes of traffic, being essential services that are conveniently located for customers.


Aurum Gateway is conveniently located right off Anthony Henday Drive in the north east of Edmonton on Aurum Road. It is connected to key major transportation corridors, including Highway 16 east-west and Highway 63. With the opening of the final connection for Aurum Road, Aurum Gateway is in prime location for commuter traffic to refuel and refresh on their travels.

Aurum Energy Park is home to these world-class companies who are ready and waiting for you.

This begins with a comprehensive fatal flaw analysis and, if the project passes muster, then a detailed effort is initiated. Projects are financed with nonrecourse or limited recourse project financing. Focus strives to balance risk and reward in evaluating project economics. Focus looks for opportunities where it or its partners can effectively interface with government and local communities to enhance value for all stakeholders.
