    I still can’t figure out why they have glass for the top third but no windows at all on that corner for most the building. What is in that corner that can’t have windows?

    I’ve never seen anything like it in real life. I think they’re mammatus clouds.

    Drove by it on Thursday and it was less bad than I thought it would be. I’d take it over the crap they built on top of Northhill mall.

    I still don’t understand why the bottom half of the lefthand corner has no windows.

    I wondered what would become of that empty parcel. Right now there’s a random road going into it that does a little loop. The buses might use it but I’m not sure. This proposal is supremely awful. Then again I’m not sure how desirable this site will ever be considering its location sandwiched...

    Dear Lord what a shit show! Absolutely horrendous! Cidex is shitting all over this city! I have a feeling the crown will be the final nail in the coffin.

    Count me in as someone not happy with more identical twins. We should be called twin city. I'm not a fan of the guardian towers for this reason and the fact that they are so tall they stick out like a sore thumb.

    That area needs development so badly. I'll wait a bit longer if it's more attractive though. I didn't find the twins as ugly as the original triplets.

    I actually quite like the tower. I can't figure out what the hell they were thinking with that podium though. At the very least if they had matching grey like the tower has it would be less awful.

    Interesting find with that concept. That would be amazing. I'm sure we'll get something unimaginative like a twin point tower block though. Maybe quadruplets. They even did a second concept: http://www.spectacle-bureau.com/Educational%20Oversight.html Also from that website was this concept...

    The Planetarium is cool too. But for classic examples of the style done well CBE is definitely top tier.

    It amazes me that we have no minimum standard. It's absolutely insane. I too think Stampitecture was a horrid outcome of misguided design policy but as others have mentioned we should be able to mandate minimum quality materials without dictating the design.

    Too bad. One of the more interesting brutalist buildings we have.

    Agreed. Looking more closely the corners have different widths at different floors. I'm very curious to see if the cladding fixes that issue.

    So far the trestle looks the least offensive. Quite massive though. Would be nice to have something clean looking that doesn’t dominate too much of the surroundings. Not a fan of the cable option.

    ??? I'm trying to figure out how they could even have such a large stretch without windows. Even University students need daylight.

    Why Calgary is losing its young adults?

    Well this certainly won't help things: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/city-council-property-tax-increase-budget-1.5483105
