    The low rise portion of this gives me prison vibes. Very surprised to see they went with juliet balconies on the park-facing elevation. Overall 6/10 for me.

    Wow, curtain wall in this location is very surprising. Relative to the other towers in the NW, this looks really good.

    Gensler (Chicago) has one of the best mixed-use, multi-phase design teams on the planet. That being said, I think their concept for this project leaves a lot to be desired.

    This is going to be a game changer for the area. IMO, it will have a much larger impact than the new arena. Based on the renderings, looks like minimal V/E to the exterior :D

    Calgary | Arris - 5th and Third | 142m | 41s | Embassy Bosa | Amanat Architect

    There is a new cycle (4-6 buildings) brewing in the EV, but we likely won't see construction starting for another 18-24 months.

    This looks fantastic. Moar please!

    Although the podium is stepped back from Stephen Ave, the bar-style massing will make the building feel stark and oppressive. I am all for adding residential to the core, but this podium needs work.

    Agreed - the previous design was better

    Typically, underground parking garages are not profitable. They are a necessary evil to lease/sell the residential and/or commercial space above.

    I'd rather see the EV and C & E built out first, then move to the WV.

    You might just get your wish ;)

    They are going to demo the YMCA facility and build a residential tower. Telsec is the buyer.

    Calgary | Calgary Event Centre | 36.85m | 11s | CSEC | HOK

    Doubtful. Every tower in that area will have underground parking.

    or maybe a hybrid scenario, where the bury a portion of the parking and leave some above grade.

    Amazing location for a patio. Glad to see they're scrapping the parking.
