    Wow, highrises there would probably have a pretty great view from the upper floors.

    I can't see how anyone would objectively like this, it literally offends the senses in every way when I look at it. Sorry, y'all are wrong. This thing is fugly.

    Rising out of west downtown like a giant middle finger to all sensible onlookers. "You wanted a new development in this economy? This is what you get!!"

    Calgary | Kings on 4th | ?m | 45s | LaCaille Group | IBI/HB

    I like the previous iteration as it becomes another non-flat top building with exceptional height in the city. Alas, I am not sure we will see another 200M tower for some time. Though this mixed use with a more heavy residential/ Hotel portion has the best shot. Does anyone know if the office...

    :( I hope that Operater is doing well, wherever they now are. I know they caught some flak around here but I thought their exuberance for City development was nice.

    Jokes but this is an actual improvement. Every time I see a new picture of this thing I feel like I'm being slapped in the face.

    What sorry son of a bitch architect designed this? No offense to people with disabilities at all, but a blind person could have designed a more pleasing set of buildings. this is comical.

    General Construction Updates

    Probably would have been cheaper to build it out of shipping containers and would have achieved a similar aesthetic

    Calgary & Alberta Economy

    I agree with most everything you've said here, minus the commentary on infrastructure spending growth. This has been a familiar well for government's passed, and I don't think they will eschew it based on theoretical holding capacity of the construction industry in the short term. It's also a...

    Anyone else using the pictures in here as eyebleach for the awfulness of west village? At least we have Telus Sky.

    Calgary | West Village Towers | 150m | 41s | Cidex Group | NORR Dubai Yahya Jan

    Lol it is pathetic how much better it would look like this. Fuck what a disaster. I was willing to forgive so many other things and be hopeful aabout the potential of this, i liked how the crown looked in the renders and thought they would do it justice. Nope, I feel like a total fool. What an...

    Calgary | Curtis Block | 119m | 37s | ONE Properties | Arquitectonica

    When that bridge was built the City looked largely like a soviet block.

    I've largely been a defender of this development, but I have to lament this. It looks nasty and makes 0 sense- I don't even see how it could result in significant savings. Just boneheaded.

    Calgary | The Hub | ?m | 28s | Campus Suites | ARK Inc.

    This is going to age terribly. It already looks like someone plucked out of the 70s, with 10 years of dirt and dust from crowchild it will look like a soviet relic.
