This project was part of a design competition in 2004. Oberlander concept for the landscape consisted in depicting Albert's natural landscape of the Rockies, the foothills, and the prairie. The Rockies were to be recreated with excavation material from the site and would include a water feature spilling in a elongated water basins in the foothills, transforming into the prairie represented by tall grasses.

The project is also documented throught correspondence, including correspondence with architects, consultants and clients, competition information, competition proposal, including landscape concept proposal by Oberlander, financial documents and photographs of the site.
